So far only one Canadian has qualified to be in the Masters field. That’d be Mike Weir, the 2003 winner of the green jacket. But that’s hardly a bellwether for the health of Canadian golf. At October’s Safeway Open, the first tournament of what’s essentially the PGA Tour season that will conclude in 2019, there were eight Canadians in the field — a record 15

“It means so much to me because like to be honest, after 2016 I never expected anything,” Jutanugarn said. “I feel like I achieve like too much already in my life, so I never think I can do anything more than that. So this year ... just like unbelievable.” It was the 10th career win for Thompson, who grabbed the lead on Friday and kept it the rest of the way. She hadn’t 28
