The RBC Canadian Open gets underway on Thursday morning at Hamilton Golf & Country Club. Canada’s national golf championship is headlined by a top-heavy field, including world Nos. 1, 2, 4 and 6 in Brooks Koepka, Dustin Johnson, Rory McIlroy and Justin Thomas, respectively.
With that, let’s take a look at the featured pairings for the opening two rounds in Hamilton, Ontario, which includes each of the aforementioned headliners.
In one marquee group we have the winners of the last three PGAs in Kopeka (2018-19) and Thomas (2017), alongside RBC’s Brandt Snedeker.
A second featured group has a pair of U.S. Open winners in McIlroy (2011) and Webb Simpson (2012), with RBC’s Matt Kuchar filling out the threesome.
A third top grouping places defending champion Johnson and Canada’s Corey Conners, alongside RBC’s Jim Furyk.
The final marquee pairing has two-time Masters winner Bubba Watson teamed up with 2012 Canadian Open winner Scott Piercy and RBC’s Graeme McDowell.
