This week we are at the Hamilton Golf and Country Club located in Ancaster, Ontario, Canada for the 2012  RBC Canadian Open. The winner will take home $936,000 and 500 FedEx Cup points. Sean O'Hair is the defending champion.

The course will be playing 6,966 yards this weekend. The greens are running at 10.5 feet on the Tournament Stimpmeter and there are 87 bunkers on the golf course. This tournament has previously been played at Hamilton G&CC in 2003 and 2006.

Hamilton G&CC is yet another golf course where accuracy and efficiency will be at a premium. As always, it's better to have a golfer who is putting well than one who is not. Don't expect to seen a ton of low scores this weekend.

Group A

Matt Kuchar (Starting)

It always feels like a cop-out when you pick the same player two weeks in a row. But, I was right about Kuchar last week. He finished T9 at The Open Championship. Why back off now? I've still got six starts left from Kuchar, and this is the last event in July. The season will be over before you know it.

Kuchar remains one of the most accurate golfers on the PGA Tour, ranking 35th in Driving Accuracy and 19th in GIR (greens in regulation percentage). He is 11th in All-Around Ranking, 10th in Scrambling and he is ranked No. 1 in Par-Four Performance.



Sean O'Hair (Bench)

Why not go with the defending champion here? Truth be told, I'm not expecting to need a bench player behind Kuchar this week. O'Hair missed the cut in his last event, but finished T7 and T22 in the two events prior to that.

He ranks 35th in GIR, 13th in Birdie Average, and 32nd in Driving Distance. He comes in 46th in the All-Around Ranking.

Also worth using: Jim Furyk, Kyle Stanley and Robert Garrigus.

 

Group B

Hunter Mahan (Starting)
