Canadian golfers on LPGA, PGA Tours show support for victims of Humboldt crash

April 11, 2018 - 3:04 PM

Canadian golfers and their caddies are wearing green and gold ribbons at the LPGA's Lotte Championship this week to honour the victims of the deadly bus crash involving the Humboldt Broncos junior hockey team.

Hamilton's Alena Sharp posted a picture on Twitter of one of the ribbons pinned to the side of her hat.

She says all the other Canadians at the Hawaiian tournament were similarly showing support.

Brooke Henderson of Smiths Falls, Ont., Anne-Catherine Tanguay of Quebec City and Maude-Aimee Leblanc of Sherbrooke, Que., are the other Canadians at the Lotte Championship, which began Wednesday at Ko Olina Golf Club.

Canadians on other golf tours also showed their support, with PGA golfer Nick Taylor of Abbotsford, B.C., offering to donate money for every hole under par at this week's RBC Heritage in South Carolina, while the Canadian golfers at last week's Symetra Tour event pinned green ribbons on their hats.

Sixteen people were killed when the Broncos' bus collided with a semi truck Friday in northern Saskatchewan. Thirteen other people were injured.
