I feel bad that this is “my tournament” (I’m Canadian) and it’s a week after the Open Championship. Poor Ernie last year, winning the Open and then being sponsored by RBC, had to fly to Canada and golf.
However, this field is surprisingly amazing for a time change of 7 hours and a lot of travel. Usually guys from The Open don’t fair to well in the winner’s circle at this event. (Read: Scott Piercy, Sean O’Hair, Chez Reavie, Nathan Green). An obscure list of winners, even if you think O’Hair is a notch above.
Granted, going to this tournament has been one of my fondest memories of my life, especially seeing Michael Jordan during the Pro-Am on Wednesday.
An abbreviated post this week.
This is Event 1/4 in Month 8, Event 9/16 in our Second Half and Event 30 Overall.
