2014 RBC Canadian Open Discussion Thread

post #1 of 33
Thread Starter 

This week marks the 37th event of the 2013-14 PGA Tour season, as players head to Royal Montreal Golf Club for the RBC Canadian Open.

 

http://www.golfchannel.com/news/fantasy-central/expert-picks-2014-rbc-canadian-open/

 

Rex Hoggard

Group 1: Jim FurykThe veteran is playing some of his best golf in years and has a stellar record at the Canadian Open, including back-to-back victories in 2006 and ’07 and he tied for ninth place last year.

Group 2: Ben CraneMake this a karma pick. After schlepping all the way to England fromOregon as the first alternate at last week’s Open Championship, Crane found himself headed home on Friday morning. The golf gods may owe him one.

Group 3: William McGirt: He was solid in his last start (T-23 at the John Deere Classic) and he finished runner-up each of the last two years at the Canadian Open.

Group 4: Patrick Rodgers: The young professional continues his quest for a PGA Tour card but he is running out of time. After Canada he will only have two more events to secure his status.


Will Gray

Group 1: Jim Furyk: A banner year continued last week, as Furyk finished solo fourth at Royal Liverpool. Now with his berth on the U.S. Ryder Cup squad secure, the veteran returns to an event where he went back-to-back with wins in 2006 and 2007.

Group 2: David HearnMany expect Graham DeLaet to be the top Canadian threat at Royal Montreal, but Hearn contended at TPC Sawgrass earlier this season and notched a solid T-32 finish at the Open after making the field as an alternate. He has the tee-to-green game to contend this week.

Group 3: Chad CampbellBelieve it or not, the veteran leads the Tour in GIR percentage this season, and Campbell comes off a T-13 finish at the John Deere Classic. It was his second top-15 result in his last three starts, and Campbell cracked the top 25 two of the last three years in Canada.

Group 4: Patrick Rodgers: Rodgers received some deserved hype when he turned pro out of Stanford, but outside of an opening 65 at TPC Deere Run he has yet play to his potential. That may change this week in Canada, and amid a watered-down Group 4 he is a great option with high potential.


John Antonini

Group 1: Matt KucharHe leads the PGA Tour in top-10 finishes in 2013-14 and I fully expect him to get to double digits this week at Royal Montreal. He was T-2 a year ago and T-4 in 2010, although neither were held that the course they're playing this season.

Group 2: Hunter MahanIf fate plays a hand in wins and losses, Mahan should do well this week. A veteran of the 2007 Presidents Cup at Royal Montreal, he was also the 36-hole leader of the Canadian Open a year ago before withdrawing due to the birth of his first child, Zoe. 

Group 3: Aaron BaddeleyThe Aussie was T-9 at Glen Abbey a year ago and has been playing well on the PGA Tour this summer with a T-4 in Connecticut in his last start. One of the Tour's better putters, he should have some fun on Royal Montreal's greens but he has to get there in regulation, a stat he has struggling in this season.

Group 4: Woody AustinHe earned the nickname “Aquaman” during the 2007 Presidents Cup when he fell into a lake by the 14th hole at Royal Montreal. Austin should have the fans by his side this week.

Hopefully we get some good showings from Hearn, delaet, hadwin, weir and other Canadians. But totally agree with furyk

I've always liked this event. Good history, field and course. Mike needs a good tourney to secure a card for next year, but has been playing poorly. Lets hope he can have a good week. Jim Furyk has been absolutely killing if this year. It seems like every week he's in the Top 10. I wouldn't be surprised at all if he took this. I think Deleat and Hearn will play well, as well as Mahan, who I think WD'd last year to see his wife give birth.

Would love to see Sneds play well and make a late season push to make the Ryder Cup.

Wow Nick Watney with his first good round in like 40 years lol...he went to my rival high school and his sister was insanely hot (I think she does some MLB show on TV).

They're cousins. She used to be the Red Sox sideline reporter, now she's at MLB Network.

Yup...imagine her looking pretty much the same (but better) at 17-18 yrs old and being a cheerleader...let's just say I wasn't watching the court when our school played her's in basketball :drool:

Camera got confiscated. a4_sad.gif

Bouncing back and forth between Furyk's group and my man Gmac.

First impressions:
Kuchar has one of the strongest grips I've ever seen.

Gmac tees his driver really low. He should try hitting up on the driver. a2_wink.gif

This is AWESOME POSSUM!!!

Yup, I remember him saying that he's been doing this since he was a kid.

Kuchar, McDowell, DeLeat, and Furyk all in the top 10 on the leaderboard right now. Hopefully it stays like this through Sunday!

Thought Schwartzel was up there, too?

 

I think it's safe to say if G-Mac doesn't make the team on points, he's as solid a lock as it gets for a captain's pick.
