  • T.J. Vogel has open-qualified for an absurd seven PGA Tour events this season

Tom Malone, Nine's director of sport, said, "Nine and Wide World of Sports are delighted to be partnering with the PGA Tour to broadcast this terrific event". Unfortunately, it also was the week after the British Open, causing numerous PGA Tour's top players to miss the tournament as they recovered from the challenging major.

The purse of the Canadian Open will also increase next year, to $7.6 million. "As the only Canadian stop on the tour, the June tournament date will help enrich the experience for fans, players and all Canadians".

The Hamilton Golf and Country Club will also host the Canadian Open in 2023.

Busch edges Larson to take checkered flag at Chicagoland
With 50 laps left in Stage 2, Almirola maintained a small lead over Harvick, followed by Keselowski, Kurt Busch and Elliott. Larson slid sideways, as the momentum of Busch's charge into the corner carried his vehicle into the outside wall.

"It'll make it a lot easier to attract all the great players that I know want to come up and play but maybe just haven't been able to fit it into their schedule before", said Adam Hadwin of Abbotsford, B.C., the highest ranked Canadian on the PGA Tour.

Hadwin was teleconferenced into the news conference at Glen Abbey Golf Club in Oakville, Ont., where Golf Canada, RBC and the PGA Tour made the announcement. The PGA Tour's full 2019 schedule will be released on July 10. In its 64-year history, the event has been played 58 times in 25 countries and boasts an unparalleled list of winners that includes 17 World Golf Hall of Fame members.

Next year's event is June 3-9 at the Hamilton Golf and Country Club. The tournament has been at Hamilton five times, first in 1919 and most recently in 2012. Applebaum said in an interview that Golf Canada hopes to rotate the tournament around the Toronto area in the short term. The event, which had been jammed between the Open and PGA Championship, is taking over the FedEx St. Jude Classic's spot, preceding the U.S. Open.
