RBC Canadian Open Preview: DJ the Dominator
RBC Canadian Open Preview: DJ the Dominator

This article is part of our Weekly Preview series.

The PGA Tour heads north of the border as the start of the "Open Season" begins...Is that not a thing? Can we make that a thing? Either way, the RBC Canadian Open is first up, followed of course by the U.S. and British Opens. It's no wonder those in the United Kingdom prefer to call their event, "The Open Championship" – there are so many Opens, to be The Open is quite a feat. The Canadian Open is certainly not the most prestigious Open, but it's getting more attention thanks to a schedule change that moved it right in front of the U.S. version and led to four of the top six golfers in the rankings teeing it up this week. It would be a mistake, however, to think that the big names in the field will be giving this event as much attention as the two upcoming ones that double as majors. Why mention that? Well, you might want to be cautious with the top guys this week, as the list of winners over the past decade includes only a couple elite golfers. As for the course, it has been used previously for three Canadian Opens, in 2003, 2006 and 2012.  

This week: The Canadian Open – Hamilton Golf and CC - Hamilton, Ontario 

Last Year: Dustin Johnson shot a final-round 66 on his way to a three-stroke victory over Whee Kim.  

FAVORITES

Dustin Johnson (11-2)
