past the hole and failed to make his five-footer, giving O’Hair the title. “I’m still a little upset,” said Blanks, who shot up in the FedExCup standings to 54th, also virtually assuring himself a spot in The Barclays. “The more I think about it, the more I’ll probably get upset at the shots I gave away.” O’Hair admitted he was battling his nerves on Sunday. “There is not one second I’m not

feeling like I’m going to just puke,” said O’Hair. “I’m sorry he missed the putt but the fact I won knowing he missed it was just overwhelming.” On the subject of golf’s ebb and flow, there was the case of John Daly, who has known more than his share of give and take on PGA TOUR. Daly shot a 72 to finish in a four-way tie for ninth at 280 with current Masters champion Charl Schwartzel, amateur Patrick Cantley and Spencer Levin, who all closed with 69s. Despite his over-par performance, it was his first top-10 in six years and left Daly cautiously optimistic. ■


How Was It Won? Sean O’Hair won the RBC Canadian Open in


the midst of a season where his statistical performance hadn’t been up to his usual standards. ■ Was ranked 75th in Scoring Average (70.83). ■ Was 169th in Greens in Regulation (61.00). ■ Was 151st in Total Driving (the combination of distance and accuracy).

RBC and Golf Canada have committed to generating $5 million over five years in support of children’s wellness in Canada. Since 2008, the RBC Canadian Open has contributed over $4.1 million dollars to various charities and community programs.


As part of this vision, the RBC


Canadian Open welcomed the Mike Weir Foundation as the event’s National Charity Partner. The Mike Weir Foundation is dedicated


to advancing the physical, emotional and educational welfare of children in Canada. Through the support of sponsors and donors, the foundation has raised over $5 million for children’s wellness with over $4 million of support being provided for children’s health care and related causes. Each year, the RBC Canadian Open also appoints a local charity in the tournament’s host market to benefit from the week’s activities. The appointed charity is able to create its own activation programs and ticket sales initiatives around the tournament. These efforts help to generate additional revenue for its cause. Keeping with the commitment to supporting children’s wellness, for 2012, Community Child Abuse Council has been chosen as the local charity for the tournament.

Course Insight


Hamilton Golf & Country Club


The Hamilton Golf & Country Club is one of the 10 founding clubs of the Royal Canadian Golf Association and, thus, is also one of Canada’s most historic clubs. It has hosted many Canada’s premier golf events


of including four


Canadian Opens (most recently in 2006 won by Jim Furyk), a Senior Open, four Canadian Amateur championships and a number of international events. The original 12-hole course opened in October 1894 and was located next to the Hamilton Jockey Club. The following year it moved to the western part of Hamilton and then moved again in 1916 to its present location. The new course was designed by the famed British architect, H.S. Colt, who created such acclaimed courses as Rye, Stoke Poges, Swinley Forest, the Eden Course at


St. Andrews and the Toronto Golf


Club. He also lent his hand to the design of Pine Valley, Muirfield, Sunningdale and Hoylake. In the years since, several changes have been made, although Colt’s routing remains largely intact.
