The 2024 RBC Canadian Open Recap

Hamilton, ON – Robert MacIntyre has won the 2024 RBC Canadian Open.  This marks the Scottish national’s first PGA Tour win.  That title he won also came with over $1.6 million in prize money.  

The win was made all the more special because MacIntyre’s father Dougie, served as his caddy this week.  In an interview after the tournament, he said he wanted to win explicitly for his dad, who taught him to play.  The pair were in tears of joy at the success of his 16-under-par winning score.  The win also means that MacIntyre has earned invites into the U.S. Open, The Travelers, and The Memorial.  

It wasn’t all sunshine and rainbows for MacIntyre though, as fog and other competitors showed up to try and steal the show.  Ben Griffin was the closest to winning who finished in second place just one shot behind.  Down the stretch, pressure also mounted as Rory McIlroy, Tom Kim, and Victor Perez all shot 64s.  While he didn’t win, McIlroy continues to show up in Canada.  The two-time RBC Canadian Open winner would finish in a tie for fourth.  

Next week is The Memorial Tournament in Dublin Ohio at Jack’s Place.  World number one Scottie Scheffler will arguably be the biggest threat to win.  However, the PGA Tour is deep with talent so players like Xander Schauffele, Patrick Cantlay, and last year’s winner Victor Hovland, won’t be giving up easily.
