Below is a list of how Canadian golfers fared across the major professional tours the week prior.

PGA TOUR

Bryson DeChambeau blasted his way along Winged Foot’s narrow fairways and through its thick rough for a final round 67 to win the U.S. Open by six shots. He was the only player in the final round to finish below par and is just the third person in the tournament’s history at Winged Foot to score under par. DeChambeau joins Tiger Woods and Jack Nicklaus as the only golfers in history to win an NCAA title, a U.S. Amateur and the U.S. Open. Matthew Wolff, who led by two strokes entering the final round and trying to become the first player since Francis Ouimet in 1913 to win the U.S. Open in his debut, closed with a 75. Louis Oosthuizen birdied the 18th to finish alone in third. …Taylor Pendrith, making his U.S. Open debut, was the only one of the four Canadians to shoot par or better during the tournament. His final round 70 was tied for second-lowest of the day. He gained 17 places on the final day, tying him for the most spots gained on Sunday. Pendrith also picked up the largest paycheck of his career, $116,385 …Adam Hadwin recorded his second best career result in five U.S. Open appearances    …Corey Conners missed a 13 footer for par on the final hole of round two and closed with a bogey, missing the cut by one stroke. …Mackenzie Hughes, who was the hottest Canadian golfer entering the tournament, finished ahead of major golf winners Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson, Jordan Speith, Justin Rose and Sergio Garcia.
