Rory McIlroy to make his RBC Canadian Open debut this year in Hamilton

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.

Brooks Koepka isn’t going to let knee surgery stop him from competing in the Masters

Nothing is going to keep Brooks Koepka away from Augusta

The 30-year old golf star is expected to play in the Masters later this week despite having surgery on his right knee less than a month ago.

Koepka suffered a dislocated kneecap and ligament damage early last month after slipping and falling while with his family. He underwent surgery to repair the damage on March 16.

Since then he has dedicated his time to rehab, and has progressed a lot quicker than expected.

“Seven days out of surgery, I was hitting balls. I don’t think anybody expected this. I didn’t know,” said Koepka.

” The goal was to play Augusta and so we were going to see if we could play…We were hopeful we were going to be here. A couple of bad days or anything like that it could set you back quite a while.”

He is hoping to get in at least nine holes of golf as a way to ramp up for the tournament, which goes from April 8-11 at Augusta National in Georgia.
