Canada has hit for the cycle for wins on the major professional tours and their main development circuits in 2017, with victories from Adam Hadwin (PGA Tour), Brooke Henderson (LPGA Tour), Stephen Ames (PGA Tour Champions) and Brittany Marchand (Symetra Tour).
That’s just calendar year. Mackenzie Hughes’ win at the RSM Classic was actually part of the current PGA Tour season, even if it did take place last November.
Hughes was the previous year’s winner coming into the Price Cutter Charity Championship in Springfield, Mo., but another Canadian completed the cycle for this country on Sunday as Ben Silverman of Thornhill, Ont., made it two in a row for this country at that Web.com Tour event on Sunday.
Silverman finished all four rounds at 25 under to give him a one-shot victory a week after Marchand won on the Symetra Tour.

Silverman faced a marathon day on Sunday as he was 12 under overall and one under through four holes of his third round when play was called for the day on Saturday after weather delays earlier in the tournament.
When he returned on Sunday, Silverman didn’t make a bogey the rest of the way as he had four birdies and a pair of eagles to register his second consecutive round of nine under 63.
In the fourth round, Silverman remained bogey free in posting a five-under 67 that included a clutch birdie on the par five 18th after American Talor Gooch had tied him.
That left Silverman bogey free over his final three rounds, the last one coming on the 11th hole of his first round.
