For the second straight 12 months, the RBC Canadian Open was being performed whereas many of the dialog inside the golf world was in regards to the drama surrounding LIV Golf. Final 12 months’s occasion was performed the identical week Dustin Johnson and the primary full LIV subject obtained introduced, whereas this 12 months’s was being performed the week of the gorgeous information of a brand new partnership between the PGA Tour, LIV, and the DP World Tour.
Nonetheless, very like Rory McIlroy’s win a 12 months in the past, this 12 months’s event delivered in a giant approach on the course to steal headlines again from the boardroom dealings happening elsewhere in golf. Canadian Nick Taylor discovered himself in place to snap a 69-year drought of Canadians successful their nationwide open, as he fired a weekend 63-66 to vault to -17 for the event, taking a clubhouse lead with just some gamers left on the course. Tommy Fleetwood was amongst them, and a birdie on 17 tied him with Taylor for the event lead. He was unable to birdie the par-5 18th, organising a playoff that required 4 further holes to find out a winner.
On that fourth further gap, as they returned to 18, Taylor discovered himself with a 72-foot eagle putt for the win and delivered an all-time second in Canadian golf.
Through the chaos on the 18th inexperienced, numerous fellow Canadian golfers had been there to rejoice with Taylor, however safety apparently didn’t have a good suggestion of who was amongst Taylor’s PGA Tour colleagues, as Adam Hadwin obtained [extreme Tom Jackson voice] JACKED UP by a safety guard as he ran onto the inexperienced to spray Taylor with champagne.
The safety man is simply attempting to do his job and, had it been a random fan working onto the inexperienced, it could’ve been an unbelievable job to indicate that burst and convey him down with a kind sort out. Sadly, that was not a drunk fan darting onto the inexperienced however one other PGA Tour professional who’s allowed to be on the market (once more, exhausting to inform once they’ve became a hoodie), and hopefully his sort out didn’t find yourself injuring Hadwin.
