RBC Canadian Open 2011: High Open Leaderboard Scores Expected

Shaughnessy Golf & Country Club will host this week’s RBC Canadian Open and the 2011 RBC Canadian Open preview forebodes an interesting tournament to watch in the coming days. Not many of the golfers gathering at Shaughnessy Golf & Country Club are complaining about the course’s thick, four-inch rough, though.

The 2011 RBC Canadian Open would be incomplete without mentioning Jose Maria Olazabal, two-time Masters champion, who is set to make his debut at Canadian Open and was impressed by conditions offered by the golf course. “I think the golf course is great,” Olazabal told media. “It’s a great test. There are no weak holes. A lot of small greens and long shots into those greens, so it’s going to be a great test of golf,” he added. There will be no smoke and mirrors involved in winning the 2011 RBC Canadian Open Championship since this course is very difficult.

Two-time U.S. Open champion Lee Janzen is among the few who complained openly about the Canadian Open rough. “Every year it’s like they think the players don’t believe the Canadian Open can grow grass,” Janzen commented. “We know they can grow grass. They can grow grass as good as anybody can grow grass,” he said smiling. The long rough however will force golfers to hit the fairways consistently if they want to have a chance at winning the 2011 Canadian Open Championship this weekend. It will certainly be a great tournament to watch but expect some high Canadian Open leaderboard scores through the first two rounds.
