Once again this year I'll be heading down to the Toronto area for the Canadian Open. This year it is being played at St. George's Golf & Country Club in Etobicoke which I'm very excited about plus the field is starting to take shape with some early committals by some top players. Here's a few excerpts from Golf Canada regarding the field:
Among the rising stars set to challenge for Canada’s national Open championship include three-time PGA TOUR winners Sean O’Hair, Anthony Kim and Camilo Villegas; two-time PGA TOUR winners Hunter Mahan, Luke Donald, Y.E. Yang and Matt Kuchar; world no. 8 ranked Paul Casey; and rookie sensation Ricky Fowler, as well as defending RBC Canadian Open champion Nathan Green.Hopefully Couples back holds up for this years tournament. Looking forward to seeing Rickie Fowler up close as well as Casey and Clark. Should be a great tournament.
The field for the 101st playing of Canada’s National Open Championship will also welcome several proven PGA TOUR veterans including seven-time PGA TOUR winner Retief Goosen; 2010 THE PLAYERS Championship winner Tim Clark and Fred Couples, a 15-time PGA TOUR winner with three 2010 victories on the Champions Tour.
