Canadian Tour Grads Leave Their Mark At Masters

RSS

AUGUSTA, GA- While Augusta National was once again tamed by a Tiger over the weekend, a trio of Canadian Tour graduates found themselves in some select company Sunday afternoon.
 
Kirk Triplett, who, in 1988 became the first Canadian Tour player in eleven years to win back-to-back tournaments (Alberta Open and Ft. McMurray Classic), fired a final-round 71 for a four-day total of 279, good enough for a share of 6th place, seven strokes off the pace set by now two-time Masters champion Tiger Woods. Winding up one shot behind Triplett in a tie for 10th spot were Chris DiMarco, the leader as late as Saturday, and Steve Stricker.
 
Mike Weir of Brights Grove, ON, haunted once again by a slow start out of the gate with an opening-round 74 Thursday, shot a 4-under-par 68 Sunday to finish in a tie for 27th.
 
DiMarco, a 32-year-old resident of Orlando, FL, blitzed Augusta for a 65 Thursday to vault to the top of the leaderboard and followed it up with a 69 Friday, which earned him a pairing with Woods for the third round. Playing with the worlds number-one ranked player, DiMarco carded an even-par 72 Saturday before closing out the tournament with a 74.
