For PGA of Alberta Championship winner Dustin Risdon, bad weather is his edge
It was cold. It was wet. It was windy. Other than that it was a pretty nice day for the PGA of Alberta Championship played at the wet and soggy Edmonton Petroleum G&CC.

This kind of weather doesn’t bother me at all,” said Risdon, who won the largest-field PGA of Alberta event of the season with a 1-under 71 to edge out Keith Whitecotton (The Quarry) and Wes Heffernan (Golf Canada Centre) by one shot.
