Which Canadians will be competing at this year's Canadian Open? 

A total of 28 Canadians will compete at this year's Canadian Open, a modern-era record for the national men's championship.

Aaron Cockerill, Matthew Anderson, and Richard T. Lee — the best Canadian golfers not currently playing in North America — tee off together in one of the final groups of the day

The Cockerill-Anderson-Lee group will be the last trio to tee off at No. 1 on Thursday afternoon. Another all-Canadian group of Michael Gligic of Burlington, Ont, Kevin Stinson of Mission, B.C., and Myles Creighton of Digby, N.S., will start their round at the same time from the 10th tee.

Who is the defending champion at the RBC Canadian Open?

Nick Taylor begins the defence of his RBC Canadian Open title. The product of Abbotsford, B.C., was the first Canadian to win the men's golf national championship in 69 years when he won a four-hole playoff in 2023.

He's in a group with Northern Ireland's Rory McIlroy and Taylor Pendrith of Richmond Hill, Ont., for the first two rounds at the Hamilton Golf & Country Club.

McIlroy won the Canadian Open in 2019 and 2022.

Taylor also won the WM Phoenix Open earlier this year, making him the highest-ranked Canadian on the PGA Tour.

Pendrith is the second highest-ranked Canadian after winning the CJ Cup Byron Nelson earlier this month.

Nobody has won the Canadian Open three years in a row. 

American Leo Diegel has won the most Canadian Open titles with four (1924, 1925, 1928 and 1929). Tommy Armour, Sam Snead and Lee Trevino, all American, won the Canadian Open three times during their careers.  

Before Taylor, the last time a golfer from Canada won the Canadian Open was in 1954 when Pat Fletcher accomplished the feat. 

Canadians how won the event just nine times in its long history including George Cumming in 1905, Charlie Murray in 1906 and 1911, Albert Murray in 1908 and 1913 and Karl Keffer in 1909 and 1914.
