Hometown hero Nick Taylor cemented his place in Canadian sports history last year by winning the RBC Canadian Open.

Taylor’s 72-foot putt on the playoff hole at Oakdale meant he became the first Canadian in 69 years to win Canada’s national open championship.

He denied Rory McIlroy a hat-trick of successive scalps in the event and will spearhead the home charge again this year.

In total, 25 native players will compete alongside a handful of the top ranked players on tour, as Tommy Fleetwood, Shane Lowry and McIlroy will tee it up.

Co-organised by Golf Canada, only two tournaments date back further – the US Open and the Open Championship – as it was first played in 1904.

Tiger Woods remains the last player to win the ‘Triple Crown’ of all three opens in the same season after his heroics in 2000.

The event boasts one of the most prestigious winners lists and to this day, forms one of few regualr tour stops that change venue each year.

The bunkered Bet

Sahith Theegala 20/1

Sathith Theegala looks ready for a second PGA Tour win and offers a bit of value. He made it clear after the PGA Championship that his game is in a good place and the confidence is flowing. Being a slightly shorter, more creative course, Hamilton should set up nicely.
