In preparation for next week’s US Open, a strong field is north of the border for the 2022 RBC Canadian Open.

This will be the first Canadian Open since 2019. The tournament was canceled in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and it suffered the same fate last year because of travel restrictions to get into Canada.

Three of the Official World Golf Rankings’ top-six players and five of the top nine will be in action this week at St. George’s Golf and Country Club, including the first two major winners of 2022 in Scottie Scheffler and Justin Thomas.

As you probably know by now, Scheffler is in the midst of an incredible 2022. He has won four of his last 10 starts, and he lost in a playoff to Sam Burns in his last start at the Charles Schwab Challenge.

Four of the top five players in the FedEx Cup standings are in the field this week: Scheffler (first), Burns (second), Cameron Smith (third) and Thomas (fifth).

That quartet and Rory McIlroy make up the top five on the odds board this week.

If you’re looking for a Canadian to bet this week, the top three in the field are Corey Conners, Adam Hadwin and Mackenzie Hughes. All are capable of winning this week, but it should be noted that no Canadian golfer has won the Canadian Open since 1954. The closest one came was in 2004, when Mike Weir lost in a playoff to Vijay Singh.

The Course

The Canadian Open generally moves around more than other regular stops on the PGA TOUR. In 2019, this tournament was hosted in Hamilton at Hamilton Golf & Country Club, and it was at Glen Abbey Golf Club in Oakville, Ontario, the four years before that.

This year, it returns to St. George’s for the first time since 2010. Prior to that, it hadn’t hosted the Canadian Open since 1968. This will be the sixth time the event will be hosted by St. George’s. George’s.

Normally, St. George’s plays as a par-71, just north of 7,000 yards. Distance off the tee is unlikely to play a huge role, with approach serving as a key metric this week.

Past Winners

McIlroy is the defending champion, having won this event back in 2019. He did so with a tournament-record 258 strokes for 22-under par in Hamilton. That score itself wasn’t a record, though, as Dustin Johnson shot 23-under the year before at Glen Abbey.

The two years before that belonged to Jhonattan Vegas. The Venezuelan has won three times on the PGA TOUR, and two of those victories came in 2016 and ’17 at Glen Abbey. Vegas hasn’t won since then, but his last six results on the TOUR have been T27, T4, T18, T15, T59 and T37.

Carl Pettersson won this event back in 2010, when it was last at St. George’s. The Swede shot 14-under and finished one stroke better than Dean Wilson and two better than Luke Donald.
