About The Canadian Open
The Canadian Open is a famous golf tournament sponsored by the Bell Canada (the Bell Canada Enterprises, a major Canadian telecommunications company). The championship was founded in 1904 and, probably, therefore, it remains one of the favorite competitions among golf fans. It is considered the third most prestigious golf tournament after the Open Championship and the U.S. Open. The Canadian Open is also the most accessible tournament for American golfers among the non-US national opens. Because of its long history, the event has a special status.
Since Lee Trevino in 1971, Tiger Woods became the first golfer to win all three major Opens (the Open Championship, the U.S. Open, and the Canadian Open). The Canadian Tour can receive only several places in the Canadian Open. The tournament is the most prestigious championship never won by the legendary Jack Nicklaus, a 7-time runner-up.
Many celebrated golfers participated in the Canadian Open. They include Walter Hagen, Bobby Locke, Lee Trevino, Greg Norman, Arnold Palmer, Sam Snead, and the legendary Tiger Woods. Though the championship is held in Canada, a Canadian has not won the tournament since Pat Fletcher in 1954.
The Canadian Open was typically held annually in the middle of September after other major golf events. This fact explains the increasing lack of star golfers participating in the tournament. In order to change this situation, the Royal Canadian Golf Association decided to move the event to an earlier date in summer. According to the recent schedule changes, the 2007 Canadian Open will be held in July between the events of higher importance for world golf players, like the British Open (a week before), a World Golf Championship (a week after), and a PGA Championship (two weeks later). Some critics doubt that the strength of the field will not increase significantly after the date shift, as golf players are not eager to play four consecutive weeks.
The most usual venue for the Canadian Open was Glen Abbey Golf Club, situated in Oakville, Ontario. The recent 2006 Canadian Open Championship was held at Hamilton Golf & Country Club, located in Hamilton, Ontario. Jim Furyk managed to win the last Canadian Open tournament. The 2007 Championship will be held at Angus Glen Golf Club, Markham, Ontario.
