New Orleans has been plagued by heavy rains and inclement weather causing The Zurich Classic to not only be shortened to 54 holes but to have play extended into Monday. While Brian Stuard prevailed in a playoff with Jamie Lovemark, three Canadians also completed play Monday and made the most of it.
David Hearn on Brantford, Ontario used a final round of 68 to finish at -8 overall and tied for 20th place.
A couple British Columbia golfers also finished up well. Adam Hadwin and Nick Taylor both ended up in a share of 36th place at -6 after strong final rounds. Hadwin posted a 69 while Taylor matched fellow Canadian Hearn with a 68.
After sharing 6th place as play was suspended on Friday night, the weekend did not quite go according to plan for Brooke Henderson of Smiths Falls. A 73 on Saturday followed by an even par 71 on Sunday left her in a share of 19th place.
She started the final round with three straight birdies and climbed as high as 10th place but could not maintain the pace.
Amazingly, it is her only her second event this year on the LPGA Tour where she has placed outside of the top 10.
For her efforts she earned (USD) $14,648. She has now accumulated $441,312 in earnings and is 8th on the LPGA Tour money list. She remains in 5th place in the Race To The CME Globe.
Merritt, British Columbia’s Roger Sloan was looking good late into the final round at the United Leasing & Finance Championship in Indiana. Seeking his second TOUR win (he won for the 1st time in in 2014) Sloan held the lead but ultimately faltered with disastrous double bogeys on each of the closing holes at Victoria National Golf Club.
Sloan’s -10 total left his two back of Seamus Power’s winning score of -12 and alone in 5th place.
The other three Canadians to make the cut finished well down the leaderboard
Adam Svensson (B.C.) tied for 46th, Taylor Pendrith of Richmond Hill, Ontario tied for 57th and Ryan Yip of Calgary earned a share of 67th.
