After the Open and the U.S. Open, the Canadian Open was established in 1904, making it the third-oldest tournament in history. The Royal Montreal Golf Club, established in 1873, hosted the first competition in 1904. The Canadian Open was held at the later golf course ten more times; however, the location is switched around annually in an unpredictable way—sometimes even in consecutive years.


The Canadian Open, an annual event hosted by Golf Canada and played on the PGA Tour, was postponed only two times, during both World Wars and COVID-19. Further, since 2008, it has gone under the name RBC Canadian Open due to sponsorship. Also, prior to 1920, the winner was awarded a gold medal; the first trophy was supplied by the Rivermead Golf Club, the event's host club.


Who won the RBC Canadian Open in 2024?

Robert MacIntyre won the 2024 RBC Canadian Open, his first PGA Tour win. He defeated Ben Griffin by one stroke to win his maiden PGA Tour championship. The Scot started the day ahead by four shots, and although he eventually lost that significant advantage, he still managed to finish at 264, under 16.


Of the $9,400,000 purse, MacIntyre took home the $1,692,000 winner's share. Two shots behind the lead, MacIntyre's fellow DP World Tour veteran, Victor Perez, finished alone in third place. On a 13-under score, Tom Kim and Rory McIlroy shared fourth place.


Who won the RBC Canadian Open in 2023?

Nick Taylor, the first Canadian to win a national open in 69 years, won the 2023 RBC Canadian Open, marking his third career PGA Tour victory. He took home the $1,620,000 winner's share of the $9,000,000 total prize money.


Taylor and Tommy Fleetwood were both tied at 271, under 17, which forced the sudden-death playoffs. In the playoff against Fleetwood on the par-5 18th hole, Taylor won the tournament with a 72-foot, 6-inch eagle putt.


For the first playoff hole, both golfers made birdies on the 18th hole; for the second and third playoff holes, they each made par on the 18th and 9th holes. In shared third place, Aaron Rai, Tyrrell Hatton, and CT Pan were eliminated from the playoffs.
