GolfWRX is live from the RBC Canadian Open in Oakville, Ontario.
The Canadian Open was established by the Royal Canadian Golf Association in 1904, making it the third oldest championship in golf — only The Open Championship (established 1860) and the U.S. Open (established 1895) have longer histories.
Last year, Scott Piercy earned his second PGA Tour victory at the Canadian Open, which was held at Hamilton Golf and Country Club — about a 30 minute drive from this year’s site, Glen Abbey Golf Club. He shot a 3-under 67 to finish 17-under, 1 shot clear of Robert Garrigus and William McGirt.
This year will mark the 26th year that the tournament has been held at Glen Abbey, a Jack Nicklaus-designed course that opened in 1977.
In 2007, Jim Furyk became the first golfer since 1951 to win the Canadian Open in back-to-back years. Piercy looks to do the same this year, but faces a field that includes Furyk, Brandt Snedeker, Ernie Els, Billy Horshel, Dustin Johnson, David Lingmerth, Hunter Mahan, Graeme McDowell, Bubba Watson and Gary Woodland.
Canadians currently in the field include: Stephen Ames, Graham DeLaet, Adam Hadwin, David Hearn, Mike Weir, Kevin Carrigan (a), Albin Choi, Corey Conners, Brad Fritsch, Brian Hadley, Mackenzie Hughes, Bryn Parry, Roger Sloan, Adam Svensson, Riley Wheeldon and Eugene Wong.
