The PGA Tour rolls into Canada for its lone stop north of the American border this year at the RBC Canadian Open.Sean O’Hair is defending champion from a year ago, moving across the country to Hamilton Golf & Country Club.
Check out our top 10 and let us know what you think on Twitter with the hashtag #gnnfantasy.
1. Jim Furyk – Furyk has enjoyed a resurgence this year, though he was disappointing at the British Open. He won the Canadian in ’06, the last time Hamilton hosted.
2. Matt Kuchar – The Players champion finished T-9 at the Open Championship, where Lytham played shorter and required a ballstriker’s touch. Should apply here, too.
3. Bo Van Pelt – BVP missed the cut at Lytham, but it was his first missed cut since Wells Fargo. His accuracy off the tee is an asset this week.
4. Hunter Mahan – Given his talent and results this season, Mahan deserves consideration. He was T-60 here in 2006, but is a different player a half-dozen years later.
5. Seung-yul Noh – This rookie’s consistency this season makes him a pick at any venue. He hasn’t missed a cut since Hilton Head, posting three top-10 finishes.
6. Charlie Wi – Wi is one of the most consistent players on Tour, missing one cut since Phoenix. He’s a lock to cash.
7. Graham DeLaet – The Canadian is the best home for the first home-grown winner since 1954. DeLaet is an underrated ballstriker who finished T-12 in his last start at Greenbrier.
8. Ernie Els – It may be foolish to rank a tired Open champion, but Els has been too solid this year to leave him off the ranking.
9. Harris English – Hamilton G&CC fits the profile of courses English would like. He’s missed two cuts since Bay Hill, so will likely cash.
10. Sean O’Hair – The defending champion is a wild card, who finished T-7 at Greenbrier before missing the cut at the Deere. Was T-3 at Hamilton in 2006.
