Featured groups: RBC Canadian Open – Els draws Kuchar, Singh


Open champion Ernie Els has made the transatlantic trek to Canada for the RBC Canadian Open and has drawn a pair of fellow headliners for the first two days at Hamilton Golf & Country Club.

Els will go off No. 1 at 1:10 p.m. on Thursday with Matt Kuchar and Vijay Singh.

RBC's latest signing, Hunter Mahan, starts 10 minutes later with defending champion Sean O'Hair and Canadian Mike Weir.

Jim Furyk, who is a past champion at this Ontario venue, has an 8:20 a.m. tee time on the 10th with Ben Curtis and Charl Schwartzel.

True South Classic winner Scott Stallings is a part of a trio 10 minutes sooner with Kyle Stanley and Brandt Snedeker, who faced off in a playoff for the Farmers Insurance Open earlier this season.

John Daly looks to continue his resurgence at an event where he finished T-9 a year ago. He starts at the 10th at 7:30 a.m. with David Duval and John Mallinger.
