It's become a bit of a theme on the professional tours for players to do some pre-tournament activities that have to do with the culture of the area they're playing in.
You see it on the LPGA Tour - like when they go to Hawaii, and some hula dancing happens. It's cute, and Belen Mozo looks like she has a good time with it.
So, when it comes to events in Canada, what niche activity should players do? Hockey. Duh.
The Mackenzie Tour, a professional tour in Canada, has an event going on right now in Alberta, Canada. A few of the players in the field showed off their hockey skills.
