The Open Championship is always a tough act to follow, especially when it is played at St. Andrews and features a playoff to decide the winner. If any course and tournament can serve as a great follow up, it is the RBC Canadian Open at Glen Abbey in Oakville, Ontario. This is a tournament that the players take very seriously, which is highlighted by the fact that no less than 5 player ranked in the top 15 will be in attendance for golf betting fans.
The RBC Canadian Open, much like the major tournaments, rotates the courses that are used for the event, but Glen Abbey is quickly becoming the home of the tournament. This particular course entered the rotation back in 1977, and has already been used 16 times to host this popular tournament. Those who have played this 7,253 yard Par 72 course in the past will be in for a surprise this week, as there have been some changes made to it since it last hosted the Canadian Open.

Predicted Golf Betting Lines to Win
One of the biggest changes is the addition of bentgrass on 8 of the greens. The new grass is there in place of the familiar Poa annua surfaces used in the past. The changes were made because of damage caused by winter weather, and the new surfaces will mean the greens on those 8 holes play a little faster than the rest. Those holes are sure to suit the top greens in regulation (GIR) players, which means that Jason Day is probably relishing the prospect of attacking them over the weekend.
We will get into who we think might be in with a shot of winning in another article, but what we can say is that there are plenty of guys to choose from. Day had a very good performance at The Open, although we are sure that he is disappointed that he didn’t win.

One thing that we always look out for when making predictions for a tournament is the weather. The forecast calls for pretty high temperatures, but it’s the gusty winds and potential for rain that could make a tough course even trickier over the 4 days.
