The Canadian Open was typically held annually in the middle of September after other major golf events. This fact explains the increasing lack of star golfers participating in the tournament. In order to change this situation, the Royal Canadian Golf Association decided to move the event to an earlier date in summer.
According to the schedule changes, right after 2007, the Canadian Open was held in July between the events of higher importance for world golf players, like the British Open (a week before), a World Golf Championship (a week after), and a PGA Championship (two weeks later). Some critics doubt that the strength of the field will not increase significantly after the date shift, as golf players are not eager to play four consecutive weeks.
Canadian Open Hosts
Glen Abbey Golf Course has hosted the most Canadian Opens, with 25 to date. Glen Abbey was designed in 1976 by Jack Nicklaus for the Royal Canadian Golf Association, to serve as the permanent home for the championship from 1977, with occasional visits to other clubs. From the mid-1990s, the RCGA decided to move the championship around the country. Royal Montreal Golf Club, home of the first Open in 1904, ranks second with nine times hosted. Mississaugua Golf & Country Club has hosted six Opens, Toronto Golf
Club has hosted five Opens, and four clubs have each hosted four Opens: Lambton Golf Club, Hamilton Golf
and Country Club, St. George's Golf and Country Club, and Scarboro Golf Club. The championship has for
the most part been held in Ontario and Quebec, the two most populous Canadian provinces. Ontario and
Quebec have seen all but eight Opens. New Brunswick had the Open in 1939, Manitoba in 1952 and 1961,
Alberta in 1958, and British Columbia in 1948, 1954, 1966, and 2005.

2012 Canadian Open Winner
The "boring golf" Scott Piercy had to play in the Canadian Open left him so excited when he won that he couldn't describe his feelings. "I've been playing good for a while now, and you just need a couple of good breaks here or there," Piercy said. "I felt like I got a couple of good breaks and continued to play solid, and I'm kind of speechless. I'm really excited to be the champion."
2012 Canadian Open Winner: Scott Piercy
2011 Canadian Open Winner
Sean O'hair played steady golf in the final round of the 2011 RBC Canadian Open on the tough Shaughnessy Golf and Country Club course in Vancouver, British Columbia. O'Hair defeated Kris Blanks on the first hole of a sudden-death playoff to win his first PGA Tour event in 27 months.
