• Preview: RBC Canadian Open

    The PGA TOUR heads to Canada for the 2018 RBC Canadian Open at Glen Abbey Golf Club, where Dustin Johnson and Brooks Koepka loom large as Jhonattan Vegas double defends.

    The RBC Canadian Open Returns to Glen Abbey Golf Club in Oakville, Ontario.

    In 2017, Jhonattan Vegas won for the second consecutive year in a playoff over Charley Hoffman. Vegas became the sixth golfer to successfully defend his title at the Canadian Open, and the first since Jim Furyk in 2006-2007.

    Dustin Johnson is once again the pre-tournament favourite.

    The world number one will be looking to bounce back after a surprise missed cut at Carnoustie last week on a course that has suited his game. He is a two-time runner-up at Glen Abbey (2013, 2016) and finished inside the top 10 (T8) last year. His scoring average in his last 12 rounds here is 68.58 which is ominous as he looks to continue his record of battering the par 5s.

    Retief Goosen joins Tyrone Van Aswegen and Rory Sabbatini in the field as Saffas to watch.
