RCGA Planning Some Changes

Nice to see the RCGA planning on a few changes at this year's Canadian Open at Glen Abbey. They've again charter a plane to flight players back from the British Open but this time the twist is you have to play the damn tournament no more hitchhikers. A definite positive step now they just need to get some Top 50 players and it looks like that is coming together nicely, they announced earlier in the week that they'll be getting the following players: defending champion Jim Furyk, Jeff Quinney, Boo Weekley, Ryuji Imada, and J.B. Holmes agreeing to come to Canada after the British Open. Of course Mike Weir and Stephen Ames will be there as well as Fred Couples, 2005 champion Mark Calcavecchia, Chris DiMarco, Retief Goosen and Sean O'Hair. Can you say better then last year. I'm volunteering this year a the Canadian Open so the more the better for myself and golf fans across this country. The RCGA has also booked Canadian acts Blue Rodeo, 54/40 and Tom Cochrane to play on a stage set up in the spectators village at Glen Abbey after the third round of the tournament. Nice.
