Plenty to cheer about in Canada


For a tournament without a player among the top 10 in the world rankings, the RBC Canadian Open has no shortage of gate attractions.

Mike Weir may be No. 27 in the world, but he’s No. 1 in the hearts of golf fans north of the United States border.

Though Fred Couples (No. 83) and John Daly (No. 414) aren’t highly ranked, they remain fan favorites who will carry large galleries as they tee it up this week.
