Great Canadian Golfers
Great Canadian Golfers Cover
Despite being from the "Frozen North," many Canadians have made their mark in the game of golf, winning both at home and as members of the PGA tour. Read about some of their most memorable moments:
-Mike Weir, the 2003 Masters champion, was the first Canadian male ever to win a professional major championship
-Moe Norman was Canada’s golfing savant, known around the golfing world for his wonderful shot-making and eccentric idiosyncrasies
-Dave Barr played 17 straight years on the PGA Tour and was the first Canadian golfer to win $2 million in career earnings
-Sandra Post was Canada’s first and most successful LPGA player, winning a major championship in her first year on the circuit; she finished her playing career with eight LPGA titles
- George Knudson won eight PGA events in his illlustrious career, including back-to-back tournaments in 1968
- Stan Leonard, one of the best ball strikers of his era, won three PGA events despite not starting on the Tour until he was 40 years old
- Stephen Ames won the prestigious The Players Championship by a record-equalling six-stroke margin in 2006 over 48 of the top 50 golfers in the world (including Tiger Woods)
- Richard Zokol became “Disco Dick” when he wore headphones and tuned into local FM stations between shots at PGA events. Despite battling to control his nerves on the golf course, he won two PGA titles and had 20 top-10 career finishes
- Al Balding was the first Canadian to finish first at a PGA tournament--in 1957 he won three events to place sixth on the money list.
- Four BC golfers--Dawn Coe-Jones, Lisa Walters, Gail Graham and Jennifer Wyatt--combined to win nine LPGA events in the 1990s
And many more
