As it turned out, we had ourselves a pretty strong field last week at the RBC Canadian Open. We didn’t have as many withdrawls as we were expecting and a lot of the big name players showed up and played extremely well.

All that led to yet another exciting finish down the stretch where Jason Day pulled off the victory. His clutch putt on 18 probably came one week too late, but hey, better late than never.
It was a pleasant surprise as the Canadian Open has become a rest stop for golfers, but that wasn’t really the case this year. Surprisingly enough, this week at the Quicken Loans National is where the vast majority of top tier golfers are taking some time off.
This is the time of year where golfers will try and find some rest to gear up for a strong finish down the stretch. Next week is the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational, the PGA Championship in two weeks, and then the FedEx Cup Playoffs are around the corner.
Usually, the Canadian Open suffers, but not this year. As you’ll see with the Quicken Loans National power rankings, the field is really poor. And it only got worse this morning as Brendon Todd and Russell Henley withdrew.
It has been a while since I’ve done a power rankings post that features this weak of a field. But, hey, the field might not be strong, but that doesn’t mean Sunday afternoon won’t be fun.
