Golf Canada Leaderboard presented by TitleistWritten by Golf Canada
Below is a list of how Canadian golfers fared across the major professional tours the week prior.
Collin Morikawa shot a final round 64 to win the PGA Championship, finishing two strokes ahead of Paul Casey and third-round leader Dustin Johnson. Morikawa chipped in from the fairway from 54 feet away on the 14th hole to break a seven player logjam at 10 under par. The 23-year-old California native becomes the youngest player to break 65 in the final round of a major and go on to win. Morikawa now has three victories in 29 career starts on the PGA Tour and is the first player to win the PGA in his debut since Keegan Bradley in 2011. …Mackenzie Hughes, who made the weekend cut on the number, posted his career-best result in four major starts. …Adam Hadwin has made the cut in four of his six major starts. …Corey Conners missed the cut for only the second time in four major starts. …Nick Taylor was making just his second career start in a major. …This marked the first time four Canadians had competed in a major.

David Lipsky, Carl Yuan, Chad Ramey and Paul Barjon all finished tied for fourth. …Taylor Pendrith, who came into the event with four consecutive top three finishes, earned a spot in the U.S. Open next month with his fourth place standing in the Tour points race. …Adam Svensson is a combined 46-under par in his last five tournaments

Danielle Kang delivered a stunning rally, coming from five shots back with six holes to play to win her second straight tournament, the Marathon Classic. Lydia Ko was poised to end her two year drought without a victory but made bogey on the 14th hole, dropped another shot on the 16th, and made double bogey on the final hole, missing a 10 footer that would have forced a playoff.
