RBC Canadian Open 2015: Dates, Tee Times, TV Info, Prize Money

Published by Bleacher Report on Wed, 22 Jul 2015

After an exhilarating Open Championship that resulted in Zach Johnson's second major title, the world's top golfers move from the famous Old Course at St. Andrews in Fife, Scotland, to Jack Nicklaus' Glen Abbey Golf Club in Ontario, Canada, for the 2015 RBC Canadian Open. Glen Abbey is Nicklaus' first-ever solo design, and it has previously played host to 26 Canadian Opens, featuring a bevy of memorable moments that include a legendary shot out of a fairway bunker on the 72nd hole by Tiger Woods back in 2000 to win the tournament by a single stroke. In case you need a refresher, here's a look at that awe-inspiring swing:We won't be seeing Woods recreate that magic this time around, as the former world No. 1 continues to look for his form, but with five of the world's top 15 players in the field, we're sure to see some very impressive golf shots this week at Glen Abbey.As we anxiously await this prestigious tournament's commencement, let's take a look at its essential viewing information, prize money and some notable Thursday tee times.2015 RBC Canadian OpenDates:Thursday, July 23 - Sunday, July 26Where:Glen Abbey Golf Club in Ontario, CanadaPurse:$5.8 million (winning share: $1.044 million)FedEx Cup Points:500 to winnerTV Info:Thursday and Friday:3-6 p.m. ET, Golf ChannelSaturday and Sunday:3-6 p.m. ET, CBSNotable Thursday Tee TimesAll tournament tee times can be viewed at PGATour.com.Stars to WatchJason Day is coming off of another heartbreaking near miss in a major. Earlier in the year, he was brilliant in the U.S. Open, remaining in contention until the final day despite suffering from vertigo earlier in the tournament. He continued his fine play in majors in last week's Open Championship, missing a putt on the 72nd hole to just barely miss out on a playoff.Day's tie for fourth in the Open was his sixth top-10 finish of the seasonincluding his win in the Farmers Insurance Open. While he may not have won the Claret Jug, it can be argued that Day is playing his best golf of the season right now, as he followed up two missed cuts with two top-10 finishes in major tournaments.The world No. 9 is looking at the positives from his recent success, and he elaborated during a recent press conference with the Australian Associated Press, perABC.net.au:I missed a couple of birdies. I made some other errors. If you look at that (second round incident) you are just being negative.You can't look at it that way.As soon as you look at things in a negative light you are going to go backwards so I have to keep looking at the positives.I gave myself chances out there. A couple of holes I wish I would have liked some shots back, but that's just part and parcel of playing.I've been working very hard to try and accomplish my first major, and you know, it's a little frustrating with how it finished.But I've been in contention at major championships a lot now, and it just shows I'm doing the right things, and I can't look at it as a negative.While Day may be disappointed by his recent loss in The Open, he will be able to draw plenty of confidence from his play. He enters this week ranking 23rd in greens in regulation and second in birdies or better.Jim Furyk will be looking to get back to his contending ways this week at Glen Abbey after two relatively lackluster performances in majors. Furyk finished tied for 42nd in the U.S. Open and followed that up with a tie for 30th in The Open Championship. Before that, he was playing some brilliant golf, earning a tie for fifth in the Memorial, a fourth in the WGC-Cadillac Match play and winning the RBC Heritage.No stranger to success in the RBC Canadian Open, Furyk is a two-time winner at the tournamentalthough, neither victory came at Glen Abbey. Still, the American has played well on the Nicklaus track in the past, with his best finish coming as a tie for ninth in 2013.Luke Donald has been in a major rut this year. He plummeted to No. 60 in the world after notching just one top-10 finish while missing five cuts in his first 14 starts. Well, he's certainly found his form recently, as he's finished no worse than a tie for 12th in his last three events.Donald lit up the Travelers Championship, shooting four sub-70 rounds en route to a tie for seventh. Two weeks later, he notched another tie for seventh in the Scottish Open after continuing his streak with four more sub-70 rounds. Last week, he earned a tie for 12th in The Open Championship after scoring two rounds in the 60s despite tough conditions.Needless to say, Donald is peaking right now, and his form suggests he isn't too far off from winning his first tournament of 2015.Bubba Watson is an interesting story heading into the RBC Canadian Open. The lefty has entered 12 tournaments this year and has missed two cutsboth of which came in his last four starts. Interestingly enough, they were both majors, as he failed to make the weekend at Chambers Bay and St. Andrews. Aside from that, he's been playing relatively well.In fact, between those two missed cuts, Watson won the Travelers Championship and notched a tie for 13th in The Greenbrier Classic. Those results suggest he isn't suffering from bad form, and a course that suits his playing style will likely allow him to rise up the leaderboard once again. That could happen this week, as his last trip to Glen Abbey resulted in a tie for 21st.
