2024 RBC Canadian Open Tournament preview

The RBC Canadian Open is this week, and the PGA Tour is back in Canada for one of the longest-running national opens in the history of the game. Hamilton has been renovated by Martin Ebert and is expected to be a great, new test.

2024 RBC Canadian Open Tournament rankings: Top 10 teams

1. Rory McIlroy: Rory has done it twice in the Canadian Open, and he's been a tremendous player the last month and change.

2. Sahith Theegala: Theegala got so close at the PGA Championship, and he's got the imagination to be able to get into a new venue quickly.

3. Tommy Fleetwood: Fleetwood got so close last year, with Taylor becoming a national hero in that playoff. Fleetwood is playing well.

4. Tom Kim: Kim has been playing well the last few weeks, and I think he'll handle this golf course well.

5. Nick Taylor: Taylor has already enjoyed a tremendous year, and maybe being the only Canadian in 70 years to win a national open is an asset here, not a liability.

6. Shane Lowry: Lowry was awesome at the PGA Championship, though it feels like that kind of came out of nowhere relative to his solo play.

7. Mark Hubbard: Hubbard can't miss a cut on the PGA Tour this season, and he's a great pick in one-and-done.

8. Ryan Fox: Fox has been playing better lately and starting to figure out his game and how to play on the PGA Tour.

9. Maverick McNealy: McNealy is heading in the right direction and could be on a great course for his game here.

10. Cameron Young: Young is playing because of sponsor obligations, and I'm not sure how much of an edge he has here. But he's a top player in the field.
