2018 RBC Canadian Open Picks and Tournament Preview

RBC Canadian Open LogoFresh off The Open Championship across the pond, the PGA Tour skips back across the Atlantic Ocean to play the RBC Canadian Open. Once a prominent stop on Tour, it has fallen victim to a hard schedule following the British Open. Many players don`t feel like making the long trip and playing a tournament just 3 days later, but RBC being a big sponsor of some top name golfers, has been able to attract a better field of players each year.

The Canadian Open plays on a different course each year. Although most often played at Glen Abbey in Toronto, other multiple stops have been the Hamilton Golf and Country Club and the Royal Montreal Golf Club. Knowing who the right players to pick this week for your fantasy golf team or for your betting slip is why you need to try out the guys at Golfstats.com. We`ve used them for years and have extra cash in our pockets now to play more golf in real life.

The 2018 Canadian Open Tourney Preview

The 2018 RBC Canadian Open is in it's usual tough spot on the PGA Tour calendar. Played after the Open Championship, the field of players is only decent because of the RBC sponsored players that are committed to play such as: Dustin Johnson, Brandt Snedeker, Matt Kuchar, Jim Furyk, Adam Hadwin and Ryan Palmer. Be wary of the jet lag that some players coming from Carnoustie in Scotland will show although being top golfers they generally still have great tournaments are are worth using in your DraftKings Golf lineups.

The 2018 RBC Canadian Open could also be the last time that the course played will be the Glen Abbey Golf Club Course. It is scheduled for redevelopment and next year's tournament will be back at the Hamilton Golf and Country Club. Two time defending champion Jhonattan Vegas will probably be the saddest to hear this news given that he's going for a 3-peat in 2018 at Glen Abbey.
