HAMILTON — The Hamilton Tiger-Cats signed American receiver Luke Tasker to a two-year contract extension Monday.

Tasker was eligible to become a free agent Tuesday.

"Luke is a leader in our locker room and has developed into one of the best receivers in the Canadian Football League," head coach June Jones said in a statement. "He’s got an outstanding skill set, and his unselfish play and toughness are exactly the kind of attributes that we want to personify in the football team.

"It was important to have him back and we’re thrilled to have him continue to call Hamilton home as the only franchise in his professional football career."

Tasker, 27, registered career highs in games (18), catches (104), receiving yards (1,167) and receiving TDs (seven) last season. He set a club record for most receptions in a season.

The native of Buffalo, N.Y., has spent his entire five-year CFL career with Hamilton, having registered 341 receptions for 4,224 yards and 24 TDs.

An issue that's been amplified in appearances at Torrey Pines and Riviera, as the 14-time major winner has hit just 35.71 percent (30/84) of fairways in return. Six rounds is not enough to count towards the tour's official stats, but out of the 214 golfers who qualify, only Andrew Loupe (33.12 percent) has been worse in driving precision. In short, if Woods wants to stop battling the cutline, improved play off the tee is vital.
