The following is a list of the prize money up for grabs for professional golfers at the 2014 RBC Canadian Open, which is being played from July 24-27, 2014, at the Royal Montreal Golf Club on the Blue Course on Ile Bizard, which is an island near Montreal in Quebec Province in Canada.
The Canadian Open was first played in 1904. It is the third oldest continuously played tournament on the PGA Tour, behind only the U.S. Open and the British Open.
American golfer Leo Diegel (1924, 1925, 1928, 1929) holds the record for most wins in the Canadian Open with four. Tommy Armour (1927, 1930, 1934), Sam Snead (1938, 1940, 1941), and Lee Trevino (1971, 1977, 1979) are all tied for the second most wins with three each.
A total of 14 other players have won the Canadian Open twice each. That list includes notables such as Jim Furyk (2006, 2007), Nick Price (1991, 1994), Greg Norman (1984, 1992), and Curtis Strange (1985, 1987).
Tiger Woods won the Canadian Open in 2000, but Tiger is not playing the tournament in 2014. Neither is Phil Mickelson or Rory McIlroy. Did you see that Gerry McIlroy, Rory’s father, won a huge bet he had placed on his son to win the British Open? Quite a story.
The total prize money up for grabs for golfers at the 2014 RBC Canadian Open is $5.7 million. That is up $100,000, or 1.8% above the $5.6 million prize money from 2013.
The winner’s share shown below is a set amount. All other prize money shown is generally right on target but can be slightly off based upon how many players make the cut and ties.
