Next Up: 2007 Canadian Open

Despite making a shift in the PGA Tour schedule from its usual September date to late July, the 2007 Canadian Open has managed to attract some star power. While most high-profile golfers will be taking a break after the Open Championship, some will be heading back to tournament golf.

Among these players is Jim Furyk, who captured last year's Canadian Open, who will lead the stars entered in the Open. However, the Canadians will surely be rooting for countryman Mike Weir, winner of the 2003 Masters. On the other hand, the only other golfers in the Official World Ranking's Top 50 are former World No. 1 Vijay Singh and former Canada resident Stephen Ames.

This year, the event will be played at Angus Glen for the first time since 2002. At Hamilton last season, Furyk closed with rounds of 65 and 67 to take the title and pass Phil Mickelson as number two in the World Rankings.

The tournament offers a purse of $5,000,000.
The course was redesigned for the tournament by PGA Tour pro Davis Love III. DL3 thinks the course won't give way to a Birdie Fest, especialy if the wind blows or the course is firm.
