Brad Gushue has guided his team to a 3-0 record and secured a playoff berth at the National, World Curling Tour Grand Slam event being played in Sault Ste. Marie, Ont.

The Brad Gushue rink from St. John’s will play for the title this afternoon at the Tour Challenge in Regina.

Gushue, Mark Nichols, Brett Gallant and Geoff Walker will take on a rink skipped by Norway's Steffen Walstad for bragging rights in  the first Pinty’s Grand Slam of Curling event on the World Curling Tour’s 2017-18 schedule.
Gushue, who was 4-0 in the preliminary round,  got to the final by beating Brad Jacobs of Northern Ontario 5-2 in a semifinal. That was after he got a steal of two in an extra end to beat Reid Carruthers 'Winnipeg rink in the quarter-final round. Carruthers had a chance to win, but his last-rock draw attempt was heavy.
This will be the second Tour Challenge for Gushue and Co. — they lost to Kevin Koe in the inaugural event in 2015 at the Paradise Double Ice Complex.
Today’s final will be carried live on CBC at 2 p.m.
