Corey Conners leads Canadian golfers in The Masters

Posted By Erik Buchinger on November 14, 2020

Three of the four Canadian golfers competing at The Masters advanced to the third and fourth rounds of the tournament after making the cut. Because of a delay on Thursday’s first round, Round 2 stretched into Saturday morning. Canadians Corey Conners, Nick Taylor and Mike Weir moved on, while Adam Hadwin failed to make the cut after shooting a 74 in the first round and 71 in Round 2.

The fourth round of The Masters is set to get started on Sunday, Nov. 15 at 7:50 a.m. ET from Augusta National Golf Club in Augusta, Georgia. Heading into the final day, Dustin Johnson is holding a four-stroke lead at -16 after shooting a 65 in the third round. In second place is a tie at -12 between Cameron Smith, Abraham Ancer and Sungjae Im with Dylan Frittelli rounding out the top five with a -11 score through three rounds. Ancer and Im are competing in The Masters for the first time.

Masters Sunday preview

After three days of action at The Masters, three Canadians remain in the field. Here’s a look at what got them here.

Corey Conners

Corey Conners is currently sitting in a tie for 15th place among four other golfers with a score of -6 heading into the final round on Sunday. He put together scores of 74, 65 and 71 through his first three rounds.

Conners will get his Sunday started at 8:34 a.m. ET and is paired along with Cameron Champ and Paul Casey.

Nick Taylor

Nick Taylor was projected to miss the cut according to oddsmakers, but he is still playing heading into Sunday. He is sitting in a tie for 29th place at -3 after his best round of the weekend on Saturday. In his three rounds, Taylor had scores of 72, 72 and 69.

Taylor will start his final round at 7:50 a.m. ET and will play alongside Justin Rose and Louis Oosthuizen.

Mike Weir

Weir begins his Sunday standing with a -2 score, tied with seven other golfers in the 36th position. He has been fairly consistent with his scores through the first three rounds with 71, 72 and 71 so far.

Weir won’t be winning The Masters this year like he did in 2003, but he will likely remain the only Canadian golfer to ever win a major for the foreseeable future. Weir unexpectedly made the cut and will get his final round going starting at 8:23 a.m. ET with Andy Ogletree and Ian Poulter.

Favorites

The final pairing of the day will get started at 9:29 a.m. ET with Johnson, Im and Ancer likely to close things out on Sunday to potentially determine the next winner of The Masters.
