With the PGA TOUR heading back north for its yearly jaunt, there’s never been a greater concentration of Canadian talent in RBC Canadian Open odds. With Canada looking to crown its first native champion since 1953 and only its second since the end of World War I, there are 21 Canadians looking to make a run at glory.

Of those 21, seven are PGA TOUR members, while 14 are either ex-TOUR members, mini-tour players or amateurs. Within that 21, there’s 10 notable names that might pop this week in PGA TOUR odds. So let’s dig into their statistical profiles. Click on any of the odds below to bet now.

Corey Conners ( to win)

Connors, winner of the Valero Texas Open earlier this season, has maintained some of his winning form through the rest of the season. His SG: Off The Tee game has been incredible, gaining strokes in seven straight tournaments, and gaining in Strokes Gained: Approach in five of his last seven.

A bad iron performance and a typically bad putting week cost him a chance to play the weekend at Memorial last week, but he finished T8 at Quail Hollow and T12 at the PGA Championship. He’s a short price to do it, but if any Canadian is going to break the curse on home soil, it should be Conners.

Adam Hadwin ( to win)

After a run of form where Hadwin was losing 0.8 strokes/round with his irons, they seem to have rebounded in recent weeks, with neutral weeks at the Byron Nelson and PGA Championship, before gaining 1.4 per round at Memorial.

An atypically bad driving week cost him the weekend, but if Hadwin can find the fairway this week, Oakdale does suggest to set up like Innisbrook, where Hadwin won the 2017 Valspar.

Adam Svensson ( to win)

Losing strokes with his approaches in his last three events, Svensson has lost some of his early-season form. After three top-25 finishes in four starts, including a Top 10 at Riviera and a T13 at THE PLAYERS, his post-Masters form has been dreadful.

He’s grinded out cuts at 3 of the four post-Augusta events, but unless the irons find themselves back into form this week, he’s more likely to be on TSN’s weekend coverage as an analyst.

Mac Hughes ( to win)

A two-time winner on the TOUR, including in last fall’s Sanderson Farms, Hughes has the ability to spike as one of the TOUR’s best putters. His irons are incredibly hit and miss, and that is most of why he’s missed four cuts in his last five events.

That said, he did gain over 1.6 strokes on approach per round last week at The Memorial in missing the cut on the number. So maybe his famously fickle irons have found something. If they have, Oakdale’s premium on precision and not length should do him well.

Nick Taylor ( to win)

Early season results were solid for Taylor, with a second in Phoenix and a 10th-place finish at the Valspar showing good form for the 2020 Pebble Beach champion. Taylor’s form has dipped with the exception of his second-place finish at the team event in New Orleans, but he has gained with his irons in four straight events.

Getting all of the components of his game clicking at the right time is always the trouble with Taylor, but he has won and contended at fields of this strength or stronger, and that iron play can’t be dismissed entirely.

Taylor Pendrith ( to win)

Pendrith has finally found himself playing on the weekend with two straight made cuts at the PGA Championship and Memorial. That said, nine of his last 10 tournaments with strokes gained data have seen him lose strokes with his irons, a recipe for disaster at Oakdale.

 If these irons don’t right themselves – and there’s nothing to suggest they will – this will be a weekend off.

Michael Gligic ( to win)

Gligic gained strokes in both ballstriking categories at the Zurich and gained with his irons at the Mexico Open, but other than that his recent run of tournaments suggests he’s likely going to be struggling to make the weekend.

Mike Weir ( to win)

Recent results on the Champions Tour do not suggest the 2003 Masters Champion will be able to do much, but anybody who knows the history of this tournament knows the pain Canadians felt when Weir was unable to close the 2004 Canadian Open.

Weir last made a cut at the Canadian Open in 2014 and is almost assuredly going to spend this weekend on TSN’s panel, but the idea of him coming from nowhere to get the one win eluding his resume is too heartwarming to entirely dismiss.

Aaron Cockerill ( to win)

Five straight starts on the DP World Tour have seen Cockerill come in the Top 21, including a runner-up performance at the ISPS Handa Championship. Cockerill hasn’t shown consistent form before this recent run of success, but at his elevated outright prices, he is in the form where a plus money Top 40 might make a lot of sense.

Ben Silverman ( to win)

Silverman is the longest shot of non-aging Canadians, but he has played well on the Korn Ferry Tour this year, winning in January and losing in a playoff in April. If Silverman can maintain that form stepping up a level of competition, he might be able to, much like Cockerill above, put himself in position to make the weekend.

Potential Bets On RBC Canadian Open Odds

Hughes for Top Canadian is one that has to be at the front of betting cards. If the iron play he showed at Memorial is real, this course sets up incredibly well for his style of play. With Svensson nursing a run of bad form with the irons and Hadwin and Taylor being inconsistent at the best of times, Hughes is the best longshot.

Cockerill Top 40 has also gotten my money – that DP World Tour form is too good to ignore, and plus money for a Top 40 for someone consistently getting better results than that overseas is good.

Missed cut odds on Svensson and Pendrith will be worth paying attention to, especially if either or both are + money.
