Things are looking bright, field-wise, for what may be the last RBC Canadian Open hosted at the Glen Abbey Golf Club in Oakville, Ontario. With re-development of the course possibly on the horizon, a very deep field is set to contend at Canada’s National Open Golf Championship this coming week, July 23-29. Only the final spots decided by the Monday Qualifier and those decided by the Mackenzie Tour money list after the conclusion of this week’s Osprey Valley Open are left to be decided.

Headlining will be some of the most notable names in the sport, all supplemented by a strong contingent of home country players sure to receive an overwhelming level of fan support.

Among the stars on-hand this year will be two-time defending champion Jhonattan Vegas, the world’s top-ranked player – Dustin Johnson, U.S. Open champion Brooke Koepka, and, a surprise to many, 2017 Masters Champion and International talent Sergio Garcia. Tommy Fleetwood, a recognizable contender in recent majors will be playing, as will 2-time Masters winner Bubba Watson.

“The field is nearly set and we’re ready to tee-up the 109th playing of Canada’s National Open Championship, starting next week at Glen Abbey Golf Club,” said Golf Canada Chief Championship Officer Bill Paul. “This year’s championship will feature a re-energized mix of international stars led by Dustin Johnson, Sergio Garcia, Brooks Keopka, Bubba Watson, Tony Finau and Tommy Fleetwood, plus five past champions, eight in-year PGA TOUR winners and the deepest field of Canadian talent ever to compete for our National Men’s Open title. Golf fans are sure to be treated to another world-class showcase when the stars of the PGA TOUR return to Glen Abbey.”


Sixteen Canadians are entered for the national soiree, including PGA TOUR regulars Adam Hadwin, Mackenzie Hughes, Corey Conners, David Hearn, Nick Taylor, and Ben Silverman.

Eight-time PGA TOUR winner Mike Weir will continue to be a fan favourite as he walks the fairways in Oakville, and the veteran player will be witness but a rising group of Canadian talent joining him in the draw. They will include Web.com Tour players Adam Svensson and Roger Sloan; European Tour player Austin Connelly; rising Canadian talent Jared du Toit; and Team Canada members Hugo Bernard, Joey Savoie and Chris Crisologo

Additional notables in the field will be Matt Kuchar, Tony Finau, Kevin Kisner, Steve Stricker, Jimmy Walker, Ian Poulter, Martin Kaymer, Billy Horschel, Jim Furyk, Brandt Snedeker, Ryan Palmer, and Graeme McDowell.

All will be seeking their share of a US $6.2 million purse.
