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

PGA TOUR

Adam Scott survived a calamitous Sunday with just enough clutch putts for a two-shot victory over Matt Kuchar, Sung Kang and Scott Brown to win the Genesis Invitational. The victory comes 15 years after Scott won a playoff at Riviera that didn’t count as official because rain shortened the tournament to 36 holes. Tiger Woods played a five-hole stretch late in his round at 5 over and shot 77 to finish last among the 68 players who made the cut – the first time Woods has finished last alone since the Memorial in 2015. …Adam Hadwin was paired with Tiger Woods in the third round – the first time he has played alongside Woods in his career – and he outscored him 69 to 76. …Nick Taylor’s second round 73 snapped a streak of nine consecutive rounds of even par or better. …Prior to this weekend Corey Conners had made the cut in each of his last eight events.

Seven-time major champion Inbee Park almost squandered a seven shot lead before winning the Women’s Australian Open by three strokes for her first LPGA title in almost two years. It was Park’s 20th LPGA title and the rankings boost will help her chance of qualifying for the Tokyo Olympic Games where she hopes to defend her gold medal. The LPGA’s next tournament is more than a month away after events in Thailand and Singapore were cancelled due to the coronavirus outbreak in China. …A year ago, Alena Sharp finished in a tie for sixth at this event.
