|RBC Canadian Open Sees Quality Of Field Improving|
It starts with the rising stars.
Among those 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.
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 PLAYERS Championship winner Tim Clark and Super Senior Fred Couples, a 15-time PGA TOUR winner with three 2010 victories on the Champions Tour.
“We’ve continued to track our player field and the fields of other PGA TOUR events since 2007 and are pleased with our progress and relative standing to date. Thanks to the support of guys like Stephen Ames and Mike Weir out on Tour talking with their peers and a partner in RBC so focused on results and the resurgence of the event, the strength of our field has really come a long way.”
The breakdown of the field does back up the claims.
When you look at The World Golf Ranking, the field will feature 13 of top 50 players including Paul Casey (#8), Luke Donald (#9), Y.E. Yang (#21), Matt Kuchar (#32), and, Kevin Na (#46) and the current field projections feature 28 of the top 50 players in The Fedex Cup Points Chase.
