In 2015, Jason Day won the RBC Canadian Open, catapulting him to a win at Whistling Straits for his first major win. With the PGA Championship now just a week away, Day will have a chance to defend his Canadian title before heading to Baltusrol to defend the PGA.
With just two players in the field in the top-15 of the World Golf Ranking, Day and No. 2 Dustin Johnson have to be considered the heavy favorites. Neither quite locked in at Royal Troon last week, with Day finishing T22 and Johnson finishing T9.
Johnson is the only player to finish in the top-10 of the first three majors of the year, including a win at Oakmont for the U.S. Open. Day had finished in the top-10 of the year's first two majors.
Day heads out Thursday morning in a group with Brandt Snedeker and Ernie Els at 8:10 am. Johnson will peg it Thursday afternoon with Billy Hurley and Jim Furyk at 1:25 p.m.
