The RBC Canadian Open begins this morning. It’s the third year in a row that the national open is being held at Glen Abbey Golf Course in Oakville.
World number-one Dustin Johnson of the U-S will try to better his runner-up finish from 2016. Meanwhile, last year’s winner Jhonattan Vegas of Venezuela is back to defend his title.
Seventeen Canadians are in the field of 156 golfers teeing off today.
The Abbotsford, BC duo of Adam Hadwin and Nick Taylor are paired up for the first time since their teenage years, when they sometimes played together at Ledgeview Golf and Country Club.
Hadwin is the highest rated Canadian on the P-G-A Tour, ranked 13th in the Fed-Ex-Cup standings.
