Never Say Die – The Jason Day Story

Jason Day’s journey to the top of the golf world is unlike anyone else’s. From humble beginnings in Australia, Jason overcame adversity to find his path through hard work and dedication. Through exclusive, behind-the-scenes access Jason’s story is shared with the world for the first time in this video. We are so very proud to have Jason as our 2015 champion.


Jason Day crowned 2015 RBC Canadian Open champion

OAKVILLE, Ont. – Jason Day captured his fourth PGA TOUR victory at the 2015 RBC Canadian Open at Glen Abbey Golf Club in Oakville, Ont. The Australian shot a final round 4-under 68 with six birdies, including a string of three to conclude the round, to finish 17-under.

“For this to be the third oldest tournament, and to come off what happened last week and be able to get the putt to the hole this time and come out as a winner, it just feels fantastic,” reflected Day on today’s victory. The 28-year-old narrowly missed out on a playoff at The Open Championship the week prior to making the trip to his third RBC Canadian Open appearance.

The resilient Day bogeyed holes 8 and 9, but roared back with three consecutive birdies across the three final holes to secure the title. The Canadian crowds throughout the competition have shown a clear affection for the champion.

“I’ve never felt so much at home, and I’m not even from Canada,” he added. “True golf fans, they understand what a good shot is and what a bad shot is. It was just amazing to play in front of the crowd that we had out there this week. Some of the nicest people you’ve ever met. It’s amazing.”

Entering the final round of competition, Day was tied for second with Bubba Watson behind leader David Hearn of Brantford, Ont. Watson tallied eight birdies, including four straight across holes 15 to 18. Despite a runner-up finish at 16-under, Watson remained positive on his return to the RBC Canadian.

“I take confidence from this. I take pride that I fought back with the birdies,” he said. “I think Canada and the crowd were treating me just as fair as David (Hearn). Since my wife’s Canadian, I still have a little positivity going my way.”

The Day victory ends David Hearn’s bid to become the RBC Canadian Open’s first Canadian champion in 61 years. Hearn became the first Canadian to hold a 54-hole lead at the RBC Canadian Open since Mike Weir in 2004. Despite coming up just short in his 13th bid for Canada’s National Open Championship, he reflects on the experience with pride and appreciation.

“I played great golf. I gave myself a chance right until the very end, even though I didn’t quite have my best stuff today,” said Hearn. “The support and the way that the Canadian crowds were, it was truly incredible. I’ve never experienced anything like that before. It was pretty special.”

With the third place finish at 15-under, Hearn earned the Rivermead Cup as low Canadian. It was the third time he claimed the honour. The Gary Cowan Medals for low amateur honours were presented to Team Canada National Amateur Squad members Austin Connelly of Irving, Texas and Burlington, Ont., native Blair Hamilton. The co-recipients finished at 1-under and were two of the three amateurs alongside Ryan Ruffels to advance to weekend play.

The champion now sets his sights on the 2016 RBC Canadian Open.

“I’m looking forward to coming back and defending the title here next year because I know when I get here, it’s going to be the same. It’s great to feel like a Canadian for a week. They did a good job out there and I’m so glad to play in front of them.”

The RBC Canadian Open will return to Glen Abbey Golf Club for a record 28th time to build upon the continued partnership and legacy between the storied club and Canada’s National Open Championship.


David Hearn takes 2-shot lead into final round of RBC Canadian Open

OAKVILLE, Ont. – David Hearn shot 4-under 68 to take a 2-shot lead into the final round of the 2015 RBC Canadian Open in Oakville, Ont.

No Canadian has held the lead heading into the final round since Mike Weir in 2004. Hearn will attempt to become the first Canadian since Pat Fletcher in 1954 to claim the title of Canada’s National Open Champion in the 106th playing of the tournament.

“I played real solid today. And I couldn’t be happier with where my game’s at right now. Getting on to that first tee today, the ovation I received was something I’ll remember for a very long time.” said Hearn when asked about today’s round, which included five birdies.

Hearn embraced the pressure of playing in front of his fellow countrymen and instead used the support to his advantage.

“Every green we walked onto, people were cheering me on. And it was a lot of fun to play today and I kind of fed off that energy for sure,” he added. “Overall, I’m very happy with where my game’s at and I’m excited about tomorrow.”

The world’s No. 128 ranked player fended off advances from American Bubba Watson and Australia’s Jason Day. The pair sit knotted in second at -13. Despite the company of two players ranked within the world’s top-10, Hearn remained focused on the task at hand.

“Whatever anybody else does, it boils down to me. I still have to go out there tomorrow and perform. And I still have to go out and hit good shots and make birdies,” said Hearn. “It doesn’t really matter what names are where or who is doing what. If I can keep playing the way I have these first three days, I really like my chances.”

Watson, the World No. 3, held a share of sixth place heading into the third round. The Florida native tallied five birdies and an eagle en route to a round of 68.

“It was a good day,” reflected Watson. “The front nine is always tough for me because of trying to get the ball in the fairways. To get up-and-down on 17 was big. So I’m right where I want to be.”

When asked about the supportive Canadian crowd, Watson hoped the cheers would go beyond the hometown favourite.

“They’re going to pull for a guy that’s playing good. They want to see good golf shots,” he added. “Obviously, he’s from Canada, so they’ll be pulling for him a bit more. I married a Canadian, so hopefully they’ll pull for me as well.”

Despite a bogey and a double bogey on holes 10 and 11, Jason Day has a share of second thanks to a string of six birdies across his final seven.

“I know that I’m not going to quit until the 72nd hole is done,” Day said with resolve. “To get a run like that was great. It puts you back in the tournament. It gives you an opportunity to maybe chase the lead down tomorrow. With the slightly lower winds tomorrow, I think the scoring opportunity is going to be there.”

Chasing Hearn are World No. 23 Brooks Koepka and fellow American Michael Putnam who sit T4 at 12-under. World No. 7 and two-time RBC Canadian Open champion, Jim Furyk, is tied for sixth with opening-round leader Emiliano Grillo, second-round leader Chad Campbell and Colombia’s Camilo Villegas.

The two Canadian amateurs who survived Friday’s cut will not play Sunday because of the PGA TOUR’s made cut, did not finish rule. In 2008, the Tour instituted the rule that sees a second cut made when more than 78 players survive the 36-hole cut. Blair Hamilton of Burlington, Ont., and Austin Connelly of Irving, Texas finished at 1-under and will be co-recipients of the Gary Cowan Award which is given to the low amateur at the RBC Canadian Open.

Chad Campbell takes 36-hole lead at RBC Canadian Open

OAKVILLE, Ont. – Chad Campbell is a fan of Glen Abbey Golf Club; his play today could help explain the Texas native’s affinity for the home of the 2015 RBC Canadian Open. Campbell’s bogey-free round included nine birdies to take the lead at the 106th playing of Canada’s National Open Championship.

“I really enjoy this course; it’s playing great and in great condition, the greens are perfect and the fairways are super fast,” said Campbell, when asked about returning to Glen Abbey. “I think this is my third or fourth time to play on this course. I’ve always enjoyed it. I just feel comfortable on it.”

The four-time PGA TOUR winner finished T16 at the 2013 RBC Canadian Open at this same course. At 130, his two-round score is the second lowest in Glen Abbey’s storied past. His 9-under 63 performance was one stroke shy of tying the course record.

“It would have been nice to make that one. But after driving the left rough, I was pretty happy just to have it up on the green,” said Campbell of his attempt to equal history.

Brian Harman of Sea Island, Ga., maintained his hold on second place and sits two shots back of the lead at 132. He notched seven birdies en route to a 5-under 67 and is confident heading into the third round.

“I drove it well again, putted it well again and I managed my game. I still made a couple of bogeys, but I came back nicely from both of them. I’m excited with the way I’m playing and I look forward to the weekend.”

David Hearn climbed the leaderboard, carding a bogey-free 8-under 64 to move into a tie for third with Johnson Wagner. Hearn, a native of Brantford, Ont., carded a pair of birdies on his two final holes to move to 11-under, three back of the leader.

“I gave myself a lot more chances today. I hit a lot more greens and my putter definitely got hot,” explained Hearn on his push up the leaderboard. “Making those two birdies at the finish felt really, really good. So I’m happy with where my game’s at and excited for the weekend.”

Despite playing in his 13th RBC Canadian Open, Hearn remains appreciative of the Canadian crowds. Droves arrived at Glen Abbey donning the colours of their national flag on Red and White Day to cheer on their country’s golfing talents.

“The fans have been incredibly supportive. Every green we walk up to, they’re cheering you on and they want to see you do well. So I’m going to do everything I can to keep playing well and to give them lots to cheer about.”

With an ace on No. 4, Ricky Barnes gave the crowd another reason to cheer. With the hole-in-one, the Arizona native won a BMW i8 though BMW Hole-in-One @ the 4th Hole.

“It was a perfect 8-iron. I think the yardage was 165 into a little breeze and it just landed right in the hole and never came out.”

Graham DeLaet of Weyburn, Sask., was forced to withdraw in the morning due to a thumb injury sustained in the first round.

“It’s an important tournament to me. When it all came down to it, I felt if I could compete and still hit the ball well, I probably would have kept going. I’m going to go get some imaging done here and hopefully get back to Arizona and see the docs down there as well,” said DeLaet. Despite the injury, he was even through four holes before withdrawing.

Of the 16 Canadians who began the competition, six will continue through to the weekend, including two amateurs. The six include David Hearn, Adam Svensson (69-73 – 142), Nick Taylor (70-72 – 142), Adam Hadwin (74-67 – 141), as well as, amateurs Blair Hamilton (71-68 – 139) and Austin Connelly (73-65 – 138).

Emiliano Grillo takes opening-round lead at RBC Canadian Open

OAKVILLE, Ont. – Emiliano Grillo leads the field at the 2015 RBC Canadian Open at Glen Abbey Golf Club in Oakville, Ont., following the first round of play. The native of Argentina tallied eight birdies en-route to an 8-under 64 performance.

The 23-year-old began his day on the back nine with a birdie. “I knew it was a great start of the round. I played solid the whole round. I played better on the back nine, which is harder and the greens were drying out. I kept hitting some solid shots until the end of the round and I made some good putts on the back nine.”

After receiving a foreign sponsor exemption into last week’s Barbasol Championship, Grillo made a birdie on the final hole to move into a T10 finish. With the top-10 standing, Grillo earned his way into the field of Canada’s National Open Championship. This marked his sixth start on the PGA TOUR with his best finish coming in March, when he lost on the first playoff hole to Alex Cejka at the Puerto Rico Open.

Like Grillo, Vaughn Taylor is playing at the 2015 RBC Canadian Open thanks to a T10 finish at the Barbasol Championship. The Augusta, Ga., native began his day by birdieing two of his first three holes; he then mirrored the feat by notching birdies on holes 16 and 18.

Taylor and fellow Georgian Brian Harman sit T2, one shot back of the lead. Harman, who calls Sea Island home, tallied eight birdies on the day and is hoping to claim his second career PGA TOUR victory to accompany his 2014 John Deere Classic title.

Florida natives Steve Wheatcroft and Erik Compton along with South African Tyrone Van Aswegen and Australian amateur Ryan Ruffels hold shares of fourth. Playing on a sponsor exemption, the 17-year-old Ruffels totaled five birdies and an eagle en route to a 6-under 66. The 2014 Australian Boys’ Amateur champion is making his first start on the PGA TOUR.

Brantford, Ont., native David Hearn – who narrowly missed out on his first-career PGA TOUR victory at the beginning of the month at the Greenbrier Classic – and Team Canada Young Pro Squad member Adam Svensson of Surrey, B.C., top the Canadian contingent after opening with rounds of 3-under 69.

Hearn reflected positively on the state of the course and remains confident heading into day two. “I feel like this is the best condition I’ve ever seen Glen Abbey in, and it’s nice to see it firm. I played a solid round of golf and that’s what I needed to do. So if I can hit a few more greens tomorrow, I like my chances.”

Tee times for the second round of the 2015 RBC Canadian Open are available here.


Golf Canada is pleased to announce that Friday, July 24 at the 2015 RBC Canadian Open is Red and White Day. Everyone coming to Glen Abbey Golf Club in Oakville, Ont., for the championship’s second round – whether they be players, spectators or members of the media – is encouraged to wear red and white to demonstrate their Canadian pride and to support the 16 Canadian players in the field for Canada’s National Open Championship.


2015 RBC Canadian Open set to be the greenest yet

TORONTO, Ont. — This year’s RBC Canadian Open is set to be the greenest yet. RBC, Golf Canada and other partners and suppliers have come together to ensure that environmental best practices are again being implemented. The tournament will take place from July 20 to 26, 2015 at the Glen Abbey Golf Club in Oakville, Ontario.

“We are committed to reducing the environmental impacts of the RBC Canadian Open every year,” said Brent McLaughlin, tournament director for the RBC Canadian Open. “Glen Abbey is a great foundation for our environmental initiatives, we have a solid track record of environmental programming here and the golf course has been certified as an Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary since 2004.”

Earlier this year, the 2014 RBC Canadian Open was recognized for its environmental initiatives and named as a winner of the Sustainability Challenge. For 2015, there are new initiatives that will help to divert more waste from landfill. Two zero-waste sorting stations will be introduced, operated by trained volunteers and overseen by Halton Region’s waste experts. With the 2016 RBC Canadian Open also taking place at Glen Abbey, this year will be a baseline to help set targets for next year.

“RBC is excited to continue to work with Golf Canada and our partners to lead by example and improve our environmental impact year over year.” says Sandra Odendahl, director, Corporate Sustainability, RBC. “Winning this award further motivates all of us – tournament sponsors, organizers and partners – to ensure that this year’s event is even greener.”

Here are the 2015 RBC Canadian Open key environmental initiatives:

Hosting a carbon-neutral event
RBC and Golf Canada have taken responsibility for GHG emissions where possible through the following initiatives: 

Reducing waste sent to landfill
The event’s goal is to divert waste from landfill using the following initiatives: 

Sustainable transportation options
Steps have been taken to reduce the environmental impacts of transportation and provide sustainable transportation options such as:
Sustainable golf course operations
Since 2004, Glen Abbey has been certified as an Audubon International golf course by Audubon International. Only five per cent of Canadian golf courses have this prestigious environmental designation. To earn this designation, golf courses are subjected to an audit and certification program covering six categories: Environmental Planning, Chemical Use Reduction & Safety, Water Conservation, Water Quality Management, Wildlife & Habitat Management, and Outreach & Education.

CN Future Links crowns six national junior skills challenge event champions

CN and Golf Canada are pleased to announce the six champions of Saturday’s CN Future Links Junior Skills Challenge National Event at the Glen Abbey Golf Club in Oakville, Ont., site of next week’s 2015 RBC Canadian Open.

The National Event, running for the seventh consecutive year, crowned female and male champions from three age groups (9-11, 12-14 and 15-18). Among the 22 participants from across the country, the following six individuals emerged as champions:

The winners of each age group received a champion’s package from Titleist Footjoy. In addition, Tyler Leclair and Elizabeth Blier – winners of the 15-18 age groups – have earned exemptions into their local 2016 CN Future Links Championship.

“It was really fun playing against all the great competition out here,” said boys 9-11 winner Eric Collier. “I really wasn’t sure if I was going to win but I hit a few great shots in the end and came out on top today, it was so much fun.”

Saturday’s National Event tested juniors in a four-part skills challenge which tested putting, chipping, driving and iron play. The participants, split into three different age groups, were invited based on their scores from individual Skills Challenge events hosted at local clubs throughout the year by CN Future Links instructors.

To celebrate the event being hosted for the first time leading into the RBC Canadian Open, junior participants will also have the opportunity to test the storied Glen Abbey layout in an exciting match play format on Sunday, July 19th. Following that, junior participants will be provided weekly grounds passes and have an opportunity to be involved in Monday’s Canada Day Pro-Am and secure a spot in Wednesday’s CN Future Links Walk with a Pro event during the Championship Pro-Am.

“The CN Future Links Junior Skills Challenge National Event is in place to recognize individuals from across the country in three age groups who have accumulated the highest score in our four key skill areas—chipping, putting, iron play and driving,” said Jeff Thompson, Golf Canada’s Chief Sport Officer. “The event’s first time being integrated into the RBC Canadian Open made for a very memorable event and we thank all competitors for their participation.”

Current CN Future Links programming includes the Learn to Play program as well as mobile clinics, PGA Jr. League, Girls Club, Field Trip and the CN Future Links Championships. As part of its investment in Canadian junior golf, CN is also a proud supporter of Golf in Schools.

In 2014, CN Future Links junior golf activities were conducted at 455 golf facilities with more than 7,000 juniors registered in the Learn to Play program. In addition, 160 golf facilities took part in the Junior Skills Challenge running more than 3,200 juniors through qualifying events. More than 56,000 youngsters participated in more than 1,200 mobile golf clinics across the country. Since 2006, more than 1.2 million children have been introduced to golf through the CN Future Links program.
