Weir Wins Canadian Award

RSS

Masters champion Mike Weir was named winner of the Lou Marsh Trophy, defeating Los Angeles Dodgers reliever Eric Gagne by one vote.
 
The award, decided by a panel of sports editors and broadcasters, is given annually to Canada's outstanding athlete by the Toronto Star.
 
Weir became the first Canadian to win a major on the PGA Tour when he captured the Masters in April.
 
The 33-year-old left-hander finished a career-best fifth on the tour's money list with earnings of $4.92 million in 21 tournaments. He won three events, another single-season high for the Canadian, and was a key player for the International team in the Presidents Cup.
