Adamonis, Gordon, among 11 that advance at RBC Canadian Open Regional Qualifier in Quebec
RBC Canadian Open
Blainville, Que. – Brad Adamonis’ T-1 finish at the RBC Canadian Open Regional Qualifier wasn’t the only no. 1 the Cumberland, Rhode Island, native posted on Monday.
A hole-in-one on the 175-yard, par 3 10th hole at Club de Golf Le Blainvillier in Blainville, Que., highlighted Adamonis’ round of a 2-under-par 69, as he and 10 others advanced to the Final Qualifier taking place on June 6, at Oakdale Golf & Country Club in Toronto, Ont.
Kevin Gordon, of Whitby, Ont., also carded a 2-under-par 69, matching the low score of the day in a starting field that featured 84 players.
Since there were less than 100 competitors at the Quebec regional event, there was no playoff needed to determine an outright winner, who otherwise would have received an exemption directly into the 2022 RBC Canadian Open.
Adamonis, a one-time winner on the Korn Ferry Tour, walked up to the tee on 18 needing only a par to secure the low qualifier honours, but a bogey on his final hole of the day opened the door for Gordon who subsequently capitalized on the opportunity.
Gordon, in his own right, was firing on all cylinders in the early stages of his round, holing two birdies and an eagle to start, but fought the course down the stretch with a pair of bogeys on the back nine, to finish tied atop the leaderboard.
Brandon Lacasse was one of two Quebec natives, alongside Team Canada Young Pro Squad member Hugo Bernard, to qualify out of his home province on Monday. After back-to-back bogeys on the front nine, Lacasse battled back, firing a 2-under 33 on his final nine holes of the day, to finish at even par on the round.
“After the front nine, I knew I needed to go low coming in to have a chance, so I’m proud of the way I turned things around today,” said the 24-year-old, Lacasse. “For now, the focus is on the tournaments in front of me, but I’m excited to play in the Monday Qualifier in June,” he added.
The breakdown of the Quebec qualifier goes as follows: seven players from Ontario, one from Quebec, one from British Columbia, and two based out of the United States.
Étienne Brault, who qualified for the RBC Canadian Open through the Quebec qualifier and then the Final Monday Qualifier in 2019, missed today’s cut by one stroke.
The 18-hole qualifier at Le Blainvillier was the first of four regional qualifiers taking place across the country. The second qualifier takes place at Meadow Gardens Golf Club in Pitt Meadows, B.C. on Tuesday, May 17 and the third regional qualifier is at TPC Toronto at Osprey Valley (North Course) in Caledon, Ont. on Wednesday, May 18. For the first time, a fourth regional qualifier will take place in Calgary, Alta. at Mickelson National Golf Club on Monday, May 30.
A minimum of four players from the 18-hole stroke play Final Qualifier on June 6 will gain entry into the RBC Canadian Open field.

RBC Canadian Open
One of the hottest golfers on the planet is sure to be a fan-favourite at St. George’s Golf and Country Club in Toronto as world no. 4 Cameron Smith will compete in the 2022 RBC Canadian Open.
Competing in his third RBC Canadian Open, the 28-year-old Aussie is having a stellar season with five top-10 finishes including victories at The Players Championship and the Sentry Tournament of Champions in addition to a T3 finish at the Masters. Currently ranked no. 3 on the 2022 FedEx Cup, Smith is a 5-time winner on the PGA TOUR.
“I’ve heard how much positive momentum there is for the return of the RBC Canadian Open. I’m actually pretty excited to get back to Canada for the first time since 2017 and keen to play St. George’s, which I hear is one of the top courses in the country,” said Smith. “Similar to back home in Australia, Canada’s golf fans seem really passionate and I’m looking forward to heading up Toronto in June to compete in their National Open.”
Internationally, Smith is a two-time winner of the Australian PGA Championship, was a member of the International Team at the 2019 President’s Cup and competed for Australia at the 2020 Olympic Games.
Smith joins a strong field that includes defending champion and world no. 7 Rory McIlroy, world no. 1 and reigning Masters champion Scottie Scheffler, and world no. 11 Dustin Johnson along with other members of Team RBC.
After a two-year hiatus due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the RBC Canadian Open is set to return June 6-12 with an exciting field expected at St. George’s Golf and Country Club this summer. Nearby Islington Golf Club will serve as the official practice facility for the championship.

TORONTO, April 4, 2022 — RBC is pleased to announce the return of the RBCxMusic Concert Series at the 2022 RBC Canadian Open, featuring headlining performances by three-time Grammy Award-winning pop rock band Maroon 5 and hip-hop icon Flo Rida.
RBC, along with its partners Live Nation Canada and Golf Canada, looks forward to the return of the RBCxMusic Concert Series. Building on the success of the inaugural event held in 2019, which saw sold out performances from headliners Florida Georgia Line and The Glorious Sons, this year’s tournament once again promises an unforgettable experience for golf and music fans alike. The concert series, which was first introduced to attract new, younger fans to the sport of golf, is a celebration of the return of live music in Canada.
The concerts will take place near the iconic St. George’s Golf and Country Club on the athletic field of Toronto’s Richview Collegiate Institute and will feature performances on both the Friday and Saturday evenings of tournament week.
Canadians will have the opportunity to see Flo Rida live in concert at the RBC Canadian Open on Friday, June 10, 2022.
“I can’t wait to return to Toronto this year,” said Flo Rida. “I love performing for my Canadian fans and I’m excited to kick off the summer with them.”
In addition, Maroon 5 will close the Concert Series with a headlining performance on Saturday, June 11, 2022.
“We are excited to announce the return of the RBCxMusic Concert Series, and we look forward to welcoming world-renowned artists Maroon 5 and Flo Rida to Canada,” said Mary DePaoli, Executive Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer, RBC. “We introduced the concert series in 2019, with the idea to create an unforgettable fan experience for golf and music fans alike. The result was our most successful RBC Canadian Open to date and we are eager to build on that early momentum with the return of the tournament this year.”
“We are thrilled to be bringing even more live music back to Canadians in 2022,” said Wayne Zronik, President Live Nation Canada. “RBC has been a committed partner to us, and it’s great to work together again on the Concert Series while supporting the growth of music in Canada through its program First Up with RBCxMusic, dedicated to helping emerging artists with performance, mentorship and networking opportunities.”
“Golf Canada is thrilled that RBC will continue to integrate the RBCxMusic platform within the RBC Canadian Open, offering fans the unique opportunity to see both world class golf and world class music at Canada’s National Championship,” said Golf Canada Chief Commercial Officer John Sibley. “The Concert Series was an overwhelming success in 2019 and will once again attract new fans to experience the energy and excitement of the RBC Canadian Open.”
In addition to must-see music performances, fans can expect exciting spectator experiences, including a dedicated food and beverage area—the Recipe Unlimited Fare Way, and the return of The Rink on the 16th hole, awarded 2018 best-in-class element by the PGA TOUR.

World No. 1 Scottie Scheffler to make RBC Canadian Open debut in 2022
AUSTIN, TEXAS - MARCH 27: Scottie Scheffler of the United States poses with the Walter Hagen Cup after defeating Kevin Kisner of the United States 4&3 in their finals match to win the World Golf Championships-Dell Technologies Match Play at Austin Country Club on March 27, 2022 in Austin, Texas.

RBC Canadian Open
Scottie Scheffler, whose hot run of golf through the early part of 2022 has earned him the No.1 spot in the Official World Golf Ranking, will make his RBC Canadian Open debut this summer.
The 25-year-old captured the World Golf Championships-Dell Technologies Match Play with a 4 & 3 win over Kevin Kisner in the finale. His first WGC title was his third PGA Tour victory in his last five starts.
After his WGC triumph, Scheffler became the 25th man to reach No. 1 since the Official World Golf Ranking debuted in 1986.
A celebrated amateur and college star at the University of Texas, Scheffler broke through for his first Tour win at the WM Phoenix Open in February before winning the Arnold Palmer Invitational presented by Mastercard in early March.
It took Scheffler 92 starts to get to No.1. Only Tiger Woods (21 starts) and fellow Texan Jordan Spieth (77 starts) needed fewer starts as a professional to ascend to the top of golf’s ranking.
He is the sixth-youngest player to reach the top spot in the history of the ranking and couldn’t have drawn up a better start to his professional career.
Scheffler turned pro in the summer of 2018 and earned Korn Ferry Tour Player of the Year honours the next year thanks to two victories. Eighteen months ago, he was named PGA Tour Rookie of the Year.
He was also part of the United States’ winning Ryder Cup team last fall. He earned his spot on the team by finishing in the top 20 in each of the four majors in 2021, and inside the top 10 in three of the four.
And now Canadian golf fans will have the opportunity to cheer him on in person this summer.
After a two-year hiatus due to the COVID-19 pandemic the RBC Canadian Open is set to return June 6-12 with Scheffler a part of an exciting field expected at St. George’s Golf and Country Club this summer.More field announcements are set for the coming weeks, along with the return of the RBCxMusic Concert Series on both Friday and Saturday nights.
