Shawn Delierre won his second career $10,000 Life Time Atlanta Open title this weekend, defeating Australia’s Rex Hedrick in the final Sunday at Lifetime Athletic Atlanta in Georgia.

Delierre, thirty-four years old, first won the Atlanta Open in 2006, and returned to the peach state as the five seed this weekend.

The Canadian defeated two qualifiers on his way to the semifinals where he upset Finland’s two seed, Henrik Mustonen, in five games and eighty-five minutes.

It took four games and sixty-five minutes for Delierre to defeat Hedrick in the final, earning his first PSA Tour title since 2015.

“I have known Shawn for twenty years and to win the Atlanta Open at thirty-four was amazing,” said Andre Maur, Life Time Tour Director. “After a gruelling semifinal match that lasted eighty-five minutes, he was back in full storm to win his second Atlanta Open a decade later.”

“Thank you to all my sponsors and patrons, especially CONA Services and Dr. Sinha Atlanta Facial Plastic Surgery for supporting the eighteenth Atlanta Open,” Maur said. “Without your support several of the activities would not have been possible.”

Life Time’s U.S. Pro Series events resume in April with the largest prize purse for a Life Time event to date, the $70,000 Houston Open, April 17-23.
