The Mackenzie Tour - PGA TOUR Canada’s fourth season in 2016 was highlighted by record-breaking performances on the course, a milestone in charitable giving by tournaments, a continuation of alumni proving themselves on both the Web.com Tour and the PGA TOUR.
Competitive highlights included Dan McCarthy’s record-breaking season, marked by four victories, two of which were seven-stroke wins, and the new all-time record for single-season earnings. Past members of the Mackenzie Tour proved successful as well, with Tony Finau earning his first career PGA TOUR win and 14 players earning a spot in the Web.com Tour Finals, including six who went on to earn PGA TOUR cards. Among the six were three former Mackenzie Tour Order of Merit winners – Mackenzie Hughes (2013), Joel Dahman (2014) and J.J. Spaun (2015) – who earned their maiden PGA TOUR cards for the 2016-17 season.

Hugo Bernard added to his impressive season, coming from behind to claim the Canadian Men’s Amateur Championship. The result saw the Team Canada National Amateur Squad member climb 104 spots in the world amateur rankings, moving up to No. 4 in Canada. He becomes the first Canadian to win the National Men’s Amateur title since Team Canada Young Pro Squad member Mackenzie Hughes won back-to-back championships in 2011-12. He is the first Quebec native to win the competition since Craig Matthew of Montréal accomplished the feat in 1998. Bernard previously claimed medallist honours at the 2016 NCAA Division II Championship before capturing this year’s Alexander of Tunis event. The win earned the Mont-St-Hilaire, Que., native an exemption into the 2017 RBC Canadian Open and the 2016 U.S. Amateur Championship.
