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

PGA TOUR

Rory McIlroy shot a final round 68 but needed two putts from 45 feet out for a one-shot victory in the Wells Fargo Championship. The victory snapped an 18 month drought for his 19th career victory, and his third at Quail Hollow.  Abraham Ancer ran off three straight birdies and nearly closed with a fourth for a runner-up finish, the fourth of his career as he seeks his first PGA Tour title. Nick Taylor’s final round 69 helped him move up 28 spots in the final standings, the second biggest move of the final round …Corey Conners made a hole-in-one on the par-3 6th hole using a 3-hybrid from 254 yards out. It’s the second hole-in-one this year, the first coming at the Masters in April when he aced the sixth hole there. …Michael Gligic’s opening round 77 was the highest score of his career in a tournament in which he went on to play the weekend …Roger Sloan’s second round 64 was the low score of the day

PGA TOUR CHAMPIONS

 

Alex Cejka birdied the first playoff hole to win the Regions Tradition for his first career PGA Tour Champions win in only his third start. The 50-year-old Cejka got into the field as an alternate Monday when Jay Haas withdrew, and left Sunday with full exemption. His two other Tour starts were also as a Monday qualifier. Steve Stricker missed an 8-foot birdie putt which would have extended the playoff to finish runner-up. …Stephen Ames posted his first top 10 result since February. …Mike Weir notched his 10th top 25 result in 15 starts this season

LPGA TOUR

Ariya Jutanugarn shot a final round 63 to win the LPGA Thailand by one stroke, becoming the first home winner of the tournament in 14 years. Jutanugarn’s win erased bitter memories of her collapse in 2013 when she blew a two-shot lead on the 18th hole with a triple bogey that handed victory to South Korea’s Inbee Park. Fellow Thai Atthaya Thitikul missed a four-foot birdie putt on the last hole which would have forced a playoff. …Alena Sharp shot par or better in all four rounds for the first time this season

Maverick Antcliff of Australia closed with a 65 to finish second. …Aaron Cockerill finished the Canary Island swing of the schedule shooting par or better in nine of 12 rounds.
