    By Brad Ziemer, British Columbia Golf

    Now that he’s dried himself off and had some time to reflect on the round of his life, Michael Caan still can’t quite believe what happened.

    His round of 59, which ended with a celebratory dive into the pond surrounding the 18th green at Meadow Gardens Golf Course that went viral on social media, remains a bit of a blur. Especially the closing few holes, when the 27-year-old Coquitlam pro realized he had a chance to do something special.

  • Video: Si Woo Kim’s Ruling On Cliffhanger Putt That Finally Drops

    In the third round of the 2021 RBC Heritage, Si Woo Kim hits a 32-foot birdie putt from the fringe that hangs on the edge of the cup.

    Playing partner Matt Kuchar swears he can see the ball moving. So they wait...and wait...until finally, over a minute later, the ball drops in the hole.

    After calling in a rules official it was decided that because Kim exceeded time without unreasonable delay, the ball was deemed to be at rest, and therefore his score is a par instead of birdie at the par-4 3rd hole.

    As they say, time waits for no man...or apparently golf ball - at least according to the rules of golf in 2021.

    The following is an excerpt from Postmedia National Golf Writer Jon McCarthy’s Monday Morning Golf newsletter.

    You can take a Canadian out of Canada, but you can’t take Canada out of a Canadian. 

    With all the news of snowstorms, blackouts and varying states of emergency coming out of Texas, it seemed like a good time to check in with our man in the Lone Star state, PGA Tour player Roger Sloan.

    After missing the cut at Pebble Beach two weeks ago, he was anxious to get home to Houston and see if the forecasted winter weather was actually going to show up. He thought it might be fun for his two young kids to see snow on the ground in the backyard, something that happens maybe once a decade.

    “We thought it would be cool but we really didn’t know what we were getting into,” Sloan said.
