2003 Masters

Recap and Scores for the 2003 Masters Tournament

Who was the first Canadian to win one of golf's major championships? Mike Weir. And who was the first left-handed golfer to win The Masters? Mike Weir. Weir accomplished both feats at the 2003 Masters, also becoming just the second lefty (after Bob Charles) to win any of the majors.

Weir also has the distinction of going bogey-free throughout the final round, but then bogeying the first playoff hole - and winning anyway.

Weir and Len Mattiace, who fired a final-round 65, went into the playoff after Weir sank a 7-foot par-saver on the 72nd hole. On that first extra hole, Mattiace found himself stymied by trees when his approach drifted offline. Weir needed only a bogey to secure the victory, and that's what he got.

The first round of the 2003 Masters was rained out and didn't begin until Friday. Much of the second round was played Friday afternoon, and the tournament got back on schedule with the completion of the third round on Saturday. Weir had a 4-stroke lead after 36 holes, then trailed Jeff Maggert by two strokes after 54 holes. But Maggert struggled to a 75 on Sunday while Mattiace was climbing with his 65 and Weir was en route to his bogey-free 68.

Tiger Woods, attempting to become the first golfer to win three consecutive Masters, shot a third-round 66 to climb into fifth place. But in the final round Woods struggled to a 75 and finished well back.
