A major golf star is heading to Canada for the first time in his career.

Irish sensation Rory McIlroy confirmed he will participate in the 2019 RBC Canadian Open from June 3-9.

“I‘m really excited to play in my first RBC Canadian Open,” said McIlroy in a statement.

“I’ve had the opportunity to see the passion that Canada has for our sport and I look forward to seeing the energy of Canadian golf fans first hand.”

The tournament will take place at Hamilton Golf and Country Club in Hamilton, Ontario. It marks the first time the event will be hosted on this golf course, ending a streak of four consecutive years of the Canadian Open being played at Glen Abbey Golf Course in Oakville, Ontario.

The 29-year old hopes to build on what has been quite a successful season for him so far in 2019. After seven tournaments, he has already posted five top-5 finishes, including placing second at the WGC-Mexico Championship last month, and winning THE PLAYERS Championship at TPC Sawgrass last weekend.
