The 2013 RBC Canadian Open offers a nice little respite after the grueling pressure-packed British Open.
How nice? Well, conditions at Glen Abbey in Oakville, Ontario were so benign on Saturday that one player shot a 29 on the front nine while flirting with the course record and another tied him with the day’s best score of 63. On the day, 36 players shot in the 60s.
By Sunday, three of America’s best—Matt Kuchar, Brandt Snedeker and Dustin Johnson—were going neck-and-neck until Snedeker, arguably the best putter of the group, took charge.
But the biggest news of the weekend was that of a father-to-be who forsook the glow of a million-dollar purse for that of the birth of his first child.
As always, there were winners and losers north of the border this weekend.
