The RBC Canadian Open gets started July 26-29, 2018 at Glen Abbey Golf Course. The tournament started in 1904 and is the third oldest running event on the PGA Tour, only behind the Open Championship and the U.S. Open.
The tournament is played the week after the Open Championship and always attracts a world class betting field. Glen Abbey Golf Course will be the host venue for the 30th year. The layout was the first design by Jack Nicklaus and still today is one of the favorites of the players.
The course measures 7,253 yards and plays to a par 72. 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.
Last year Jhonattan Vegas went back-to-back by rallying on the final day to earn a one-stroke win over a trio of players; Dustin Johnson, Jon Rahm and Martin Laird. It was the Venezuelans third career win on the PGA Tour.
Lee Trevino won it three times, including 1971, when he became the only player in the history of golf to win both the Open Championship and Canadian Open in the same year. Other past champions include Byron Nelson, Sam Snead, Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicklaus, Greg Norman, Tiger Woods and Jason Day.
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.
