The PGA Tour circuit travels to Ontario, Canada for the 2017 RBC Canadian Open, which is scheduled for July 27-30. The National Open of Canada was first played in 1904 and is considered the most prestigious tournament that Jack Nicklaus did not win, finishing runner-up seven times.
Glen Abbey Golf Club is the host course. The track measures 7,253 yards and plays to a par 72. The site of Golf Canada headquarters serves as host for the 29th time. This was Jack Nicklaus’ first solo design and opened in 1977 to serve as the home of Golf Canada. The back nine features the “Valley Holes,” starting with a tee shot at No.11 to No. 14 and finishes with one of the best finishing holes on the PGA Tour, a reachable par-5 that can either make or break the professionals day.
Celebrated champions at the RBC Canadian Open include Hall of Famers Walter Hagen, Sam Snead, Tommy Armour, Arnold Palmer, Billy Casper, Lee Trevino, Curtis Strange, Greg Norman, Vijay Singh, Nick Price and Mark O’Meara. Tiger Woods won it in 2000 and World No. 1 Jason Day won it fifteen years later in 2015.
Established in 1904, the tournament is the third-oldest national open golf championship worldwide next to the British Open and the U.S. Open.
The last Canadian to win the Canadian Open was Pat Fletcher in 1954.
The RBC Heritage tournament consists of a field of 156 professionals and amateurs made up of the following:
All 156 players tee up on Thursday and Friday with a cut to the lowest 70 scores and ties after Friday's round.
The remaining 70, plus ties, will battle it out in stroke play until a winner is determined on Sunday afternoon.
In the case of a tie on Sunday, a champion will be decided in a sudden death playoff.

Since its inaugural event in 1904, the RBC Canadian Open has played host to the world's best golfers.
The PGA Tour RBC Canadian Open is the second-oldest tournament on the PGA Tour schedule (not including the British opens) behind only the BMW Championship (formerly known as the Western Open). The Canadian Open is conducted by the Royal Canadian Golf Association (RCGA).
The Canadian Open is commonly regarded as the most prestigious tournament never won by the great Jack Nicklaus, a 7-time runner-up.
The list of Canadian Open legends also includes three-time winners Sam Snead (1938, 1940-41) and Lee Trevino (1971, 1977, 1979), with Greg Norman (1984, 1992), Tom Weiskopf (1973, 1975), Curtis Strange (1985, 1987), Nick Price (1991, 1994), and Jim Furyk (2006-07) all having won twice.
Jhonattan Vegas rallied to win the RBC Canadian Open for his second PGA Tour victory, birdieing the final three holes at Glen Abbey Golf Club for an 8-under 64 and one-stroke victory.
The 29-year-old Venezuelan began the day five strokes behind leader Brandt Snedeker, and four behind U.S. Open champion Dustin Johnson and Canadian amateur Jared du Toit.
Du Toit finished tied for ninth at 9 under after a final round of 71. He was trying to become the first Canadian to win the event since Pat Fletcher in 1954.
Du Toit struggled to start today’s round with two early bogeys, but birdied 16 and 18 to finish two shots ahead of world No. 1 Jason Day.
