The RBC Canadian Open means something different to everyone. To some, it's an opportunity to introduce their children to the game, to others, it offers motivation to perfect their swing. Tony Harris, however, looks at the national championship a little differently.
As the official artist of the RBC Canadian Open, Harris recreates some of Canada's most renowned courses on canvas. A golfer himself, he insists on producing imagery that appeals to both the artistically inclined and the golf enthusiast.

For the second consecutive year, golf fans will decide the hole location for the final round of a major championship through the "PGA Championship Pick the Hole Location Challenge Hosted by Jack Nicklaus Presented by Samsung."
After a popular debut in 2013, Nicklaus collaborated again with PGA Chief Championships Officer Kerry Haigh to select the 508-yard, par-4 16th hole at Jack Nicklaus-designed Valhalla Golf Club, based on the unique challenge it will present the field. No. 16, a slight dogleg right, has proven to be one of the most difficult holes at Valhalla. It's also where Tiger Woods made a dramatic birdie putt on the first hole of a three-hole playoff victory over Bob May in the 2000 PGA Championship.

HOYLAKE, England (Doug Ferguson/AP) — The end of the British Open means the Ryder Cup is getting closer, and there are a couple of regulars still not in the team.
That starts with Phil Mickelson and Tiger Woods.
They both have two tournaments remaining before qualifying ends at the PGA Championship. The top nine earn automatic spots on the U.S. team that goes to Scotland at the end of September to try to win back the cup.
Tom Watson has three captain's picks.

ATLANTA, Georgia — Orange flags have been placed on a golf course in Atlanta's Chastain Park to mark the sites of dozens of possible unmarked graves.
Chastain Park Conservancy Operations Director Ray Mock said he always suspected there were graves somewhere in the park, and then he discovered an old map showing a cemetery.
