RBC Canadian Open TicketsThe RBC Canadian Open is an incredibly old and storied tournament. It actually pre-dates the PGA, which was founded in 1916. The first Canadian Open was held in 1904. This event has been held annually, apart from the years when World Wars I and II interrupted it. This event is proudly presented by Golf Canada. The course for the Canadian Open varies often. Though the tournament is most often held at Glen Abbey Country Club in Oakville, it also rotates to courses throughout the country. Over the years, the Canadian Open has also been held at the Royal Montreal Golf Club, the Richelieu Valley Golf & Country Club and the Hamilton Golf & Country Club. As a National Open, the RBC Canadian Open is part of PGA Golf's Triple Crown. The only two players to win all three titles in one year are Lee Trevino and Tiger Woods.

What is the award for the tournament called?The award for the winner of this tournament has changed with time. Originally, the winner of the tournament was presented with a gold medal. From the 1970s until the 1993, the trophy awarded to the winner was sponsored by DuMaurier tobacco and changed every year. Today's RBC Canadian Open winners are presented with the RBC Canadian Open Trophy. This trophy dates to 1994 and is made of sterling silver. Canada's national symbol, the maple leaf, is represented in the trophy. Other national symbols are included in the trophy, for example, provincial and territorial flags. A map of Canada is also etched into the top of the trophy. Prior to 1994, the tournament was sponsored by a tobacco company, and the award had a different name.

It was 30 years before Tiger Woods repeated this feat in 2000.
