PGA: RBC Canadian Open

Patrick Cantlay was about as solid as it gets throughout each of his first three rounds at Jack’s place. This set him up nicely heading into Sunday, and a dazzling final round 64 sent him up the leaderboard and onward to the Memorial title and his second PGA Tour win. An extremely talented player with seemingly no holes in his game, Patrick has battled his way back from injury and turned himself into one of the best players on tour. I believe he’ll win a major sooner than later.

The Memorial was a fun event with plenty of storylines. Rory, JT, and Kuch all missed the cut – likely a product of the new schedule and this event being smack in between majors. Lots of the elite guys chose to rest following the PGA and used Memorial to shake off the rust in hopes of peaking for next week’s US Open.  We had another Big Cat sighting Sunday morning as Tiger electrified the crowd with 7 birdies in his first 11 holes. At the end of the day, he was just too far back and flattened out as the afternoon went on. Two weeks to America’s Open but first a trip north of the border for the RBC Canadian Open.

Played over the last few seasons at bombers paradise Glenn Abbey CC, this year’s Canadian Open shifts to historic Hamilton Golf and Country Club. Hamilton, at more than 100 years old, is a classic tree-lined track that favors accuracy over power.  Slowish poa greens may be rather defenseless as a lack of wind in the forecast will allow the players to go flag hunting. One angle I’m using this week is to predominantly fade the guys who played 36 hole US Open qualifiers on Monday. I’d be concerned with not only fatigue, but a lack of preparation as this is the first time most of these players will have set foot on Hamilton CC. We have a great field this week and I’m looking forward to following the action. See ya next week from the US Open at Pebble Beach!
