has topped what Arnold Palmer did back in 1955, when the iconic golfer racked up a ridiculous -23 under par to set a record
that still holds. In years past, the open has been held in Markham, Hamilton, and, most popularly, at the Glen Abbey in Oakville,
Ontario, where it now has the perfect home for all of the action.

still remain the gold standard at the RBC Canadian Open.
