Rory McIlroy is coming to Canada.
Fresh off his Players Championship victory last week, RBC and Golf Canada announced Thursday that McIlroy will play in this year’s RBC Canadian Open, June 3-9 at Hamilton Golf and Country Club.
It will mark the first time that McIlroy, a 15-time PGA Tour winner, four-time major champion and the No.4 ranked player in the world, will tee it up at the Canadian Open.
“I‘m really excited to play in my first RBC Canadian Open,” said McIlroy in a prepared statement provided to Sportsnet. “I’ve had the opportunity to see the passion that Canada has for our sport and I look forward to seeing the energy of Canadian golf fans first hand.”
