That’s not surprising. While there has been broad speculation that the Canadian Open date could move to the week before the U.S. Open in June, or, perhaps even stay where it is in late July, there’s no way that Golf Canada was about to announce their dates before the PGA Tour released them.

Next year’s open will be the sixth that the Hamilton course has hosted and in more recent years — 2003, 2006, and 2012 — the PGA Tour players raved about it and Golf Canada is no doubt hoping that will help guarantee a good field.
