It may be overshadowed by the Toronto Raptors being in the NBA finals but this is a big week in Canada. After moving to a new spot on the schedule and relocating from Glen Abbey in Oakville to Hamilton G&CC in, well, Hamilton, the event has gotten a big boost.

The change has brought in a top-tier field in hopes of getting their games right for next weeks US Open. Four of the top six players in the world (Brooks Koepka, Dustin Johnson, Rory McIlroy & Justin Thomas) are in the field along with a number of players hoping to enter Pebble Beach next week with a chance at back-to-back national open wins.

2017 – Jhonattan Vegas(-21)
