IRT - Tim Landeryou wins 38th Annual Keystone Classic

Tim Landeryou won the 38th Annual Keystone Classic - the longest running racquetball tournament in the world, and a Tier 4 event on the International Racquetball Tour (IRT) - in Winnipeg, Manitoba, on the weekend by defeating his younger brother James Landeryou, 11-9, 11-7, 11-8. Tim Landeryou reach the final with a semi-final victory over Kurtis Cullen, 11-4, 11-2, 11-0, while James Landeryou needed a fifth game to defeat Eric Desrochers, 11-13, 11-5, 11-4, 4-11, 11-4.

But the brothers teamed up and won the doubles title with a straight game victory over Desrochers and Lee Connell, 15-7, 15-12.

The next IRT Tier 1 event will be the San Diego Open, February 22-26, but there is a Tier 4 event this weekend, as the Winter Classic begins Friday in Overland Park, Kansas.
