10 Revealing photos from the 2016 RBC Canadian Open

Published

on

GolfWRX was live this week from the 2016 RBC Canadian Open at Glen Abbey Golf Course and Oakville, Ontario. If you missed any of the photos from this week, make sure to browse to browse all of the galleries in the links below:

We’re back to North America after Open Championship week, but not quite back to the states just yet. Canadians Mike Weir and Graham DeLaet are both representing Canada in their nation’s Open championship, while world Nos. 1 and 2 Jason Day and Dustin Johnson look to bring the title to Australia and the United States, respectively.

Geography lesson, over. Now let’s reveal some photos.

Shaft Satchel

This has to be the coolest, and safest, way to carry around thousands and thousands of dollars worth of high-end shafts. It even has an alignment-stick holder. Brilliant.

On a string

I’ll admit, I’ve never seen this drill before in my life. My best guess is that the string contraption is encouraging him to take the putter back further, and shorten his forward stroke, adding more “pop” through the ball. But I’m welcome to other theories.

Before we check your travel bag, sir, do you have any valuables we need to know about?

Oh not really. Just about 10 grand worth of drivers.

Brutal

Even on the practice green, every lip out hurts. At least this one wasn’t for 62 and major championship history, though.

Tour divots

Flat, thin and bunched. That’s how a divot pattern should look on the range. If you only get to practice while hitting off of turf mats like 99 percent of us, ignore this.

This video camera setup looks straight out of the wardrobe of Ghostbusters.

The 2016 version of the movie came out recently, and judging by early reviews, I’ll be waiting for the television release.

If this drill is good enough for the world’s No. 1-ranked player, it’s good enough for you. Also, is Jerry Kelly yawning or screaming in the background?

I’ll give you 100 guesses: Who’s wearing these classic Jordan 5 “Dunk from Above” shoes?

Did you guess Fluff, Jim Furyk’s longtime caddie, and former caddie for Tiger Woods? Me neither.

Never forget

In the year 2000, Tiger Woods did a lot of special things in the world of golf. But perhaps his greatest feat was hitting a 6-iron from 200 yards out of a fairway bunker on the 18th hole at that year’s Canadian Open, which was also held at Glen Abbey.

There’s some stiff competition, but that may just be the greatest shot he’s ever hit, even though as he said, “I didn’t even hit the green.”

At GolfWRX, we love golf equipment plain and simple.

We are a community of like-minded individuals that all experience and express our enjoyment for the game in many ways. It’s that sense of community that drives day-to-day interactions in the forums on topics that range from best driver to what marker you use to mark your ball, it even allows us to share another thing – the equipment itself.

One of the best ways to enjoy equipment is to experiment and whether you are looking to buy-sell-or trade (as the name suggests) you can find almost anything in the GolfWRX BST Forum. From one-off custom Scotty Cameron Circle T putters, to iron sets, wedges, and barely hit drivers, you can find it all in our constantly updated marketplace.
