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.
