How is Canada’s national championship on the PGA TOUR’s schedule and administered by the PGA TOUR staff?  The short answer is television.  The PGA TOUR’s contract with CBS Sports, allows Canada’s golf governing body, Golf Canada, to partner with the PGA TOUR to have their national championship televised worldwide and seen by millions.

Being the 3rd oldest golf tournament in the world is a credit to Golf Canada and the entire country of Canada.  The people are great lovers of golf and are truly great fans of the game.  The country continues to produce top notch players who are able to compete at golf’s highest level.  Mike Weir, Graham DeLaet, and David Hearn are just a few of the names you will recognize but be assured there are many more talented professional golfers from Canada who have and will continue to make an impact in the world of professional golf.
