CUMBERLAND, Ontario - Lamar University golfer Stephane Dubois shot a final round 70 Friday at Camelot Golf and Country Club to finish in a tie for fifth at the 2012 Canadian Men's Amateur Championship.
The Lamar junior held the 36-hole lead after rounds of 68 and 66 at the tournament which was also played at Club de golf Outaouais - South-West. Dubois, who transferred to Lamar after a year and a half at Wisconsin, finished five strokes behind Mackenzie Hughes (-12) for the title.
After his strong 36-hole start, Dubois struggled to a 77 in the third round which included an eight on the par-5, 602-yard 12th hole. The native Canadian rebounded in Friday's final round to card six birdies for a 7-under par total of 281 for four rounds.
Dubois was one of the top junior players in Canada prior to signing with Wisconsin. He led the Badgers in stroke average as a freshman at 74.07, the third best freshman scoring average in school history. Dubois closed his freshman campaign with a tie for 26th at the Big Ten Championships.
Dubois played in five tournaments for the Cardinals in the spring after his transfer. In 14 rounds, Dubois fashioned a 76.71 stroke average at Lamar with a best finish of a tie for 35th at the General Hackler Championship.
