The Canadian Open

The Tour will move to Canada this week for the annual Canadian Open. The event in Hamilton, Ontario has a purse of $5 million but brings one of the weakest fieldes talent wise in all of the Tour's events. The early favorite for victory is probably world number two as well as the number two player on the money list, Jim Furyk. Furyk is having one of the best seasons in his career seeming to always be in the hunt. He will hope to build momentum going into the Ryder Cup at the K Club starting on September 21st. Another player who may be able to find the winner's circle this week may be Steve Stricker. Stricker is having a solid season and looking for victory to complement his several top ten finishes. Tiger Woods will not be in the field despite winning in each of the last three weeks, and more impressively winning in each of his last five starts. Mark Calcavecchia will return to Hamilton to defend his title and hope for his first victory of this 2006 season.
