A year ago, Jason Day used the RBC Canadian Open to jumpstart one of the most dominant runs in recent golf history. Day won at Glen Abbey, then picked up his first major title at the PGA and kept winning until this week's Players. That gave him seven wins in 17 events, but now, the World No. 1 returns to Ontario on a (gasp!) four-tournament losing streak. Can Day use Canada to find a spark again? Listen to Joel Beall and I discuss this week's field:
And if you're more old-school and would rather just read my normal weekly picks, here's who I'm taking on my PGA Tour Fantasy Golf team at Glen Abbey:
Jason Day: The Aussie was on the bad side of the draw at the Open Championship during his T-22 at Royal Troon. The following morning he was already practicing at Glen Abbey as he tries to gear up for next week's PGA Championship at Baltusrol. Nothing to fear here.
Jim Furyk: Speaking of guys working hard, no sooner had Furyk finished his week at the Open was he back on the Royal Troon practice green. Furyk has top 10s in his past two trips to Glen Abbey. No reason to think he can't do at least that this week.
Matt Kuchar: The PGA Tour's ATM is back, racking up top-six finishes in his past five non-major starts. The Canadian is a non-major. Enough said.
Graham DeLaet: We had to add a little Canadian flavor to the mix. After a T-8 at the Barbasol Championship, DeLaet is primed to win his national open -- even if he cut his beard.
__ Bench:__ Dustin Johnson and Brandt Snedeker.
And for those of you playing other fantasy golf formats:
