The last time the Bell Canadian Open was in Vancouver at Shaughnessy, I decided to volunteer to work the driving range because I thought it would be the place to see how the best players in the world get ready to play.
 
Not that there was much likelihood I would try and follow their drills to help me prepare to play my own game.
