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.

14.07.29-Pick-the-HoleFor 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.

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.

Sixty years ago a priest in Southern Ontario gave a set of sawed-off hickory golf clubs to a tiny 5-year old girl who wanted to play golf.
Little did he know what an impact that gift would have on her life and that of thousands of young girls in some of the most poverty-stricken regions of Africa.
Little Ginny Golding fell in love with the game and went on to become the first female member of the PGA of British Columbia.
She is a pioneer for women’s golf in B.C. and the poster child for players who are committed to giving back through golf.
