Year: 2003

For most casual golf fans in Canada in the 2000s, there was Tiger Woods and then… well, everyone else. That is, until 2003, when a lefty from Sarnia shocked the country, and the world, by winning the Masters. Weir entered August an underdog, up against the two-time defending champ Woods, and needed a sudden-death playoff to beat Len Mattiace. But he left Georgia as the first Canadian golfer to win a major, bringing the green jacket to the Great White North for the first time in history. —Rick Mele
