Henderson headlines Canadian Open

OTTAWA—The CP Women's Open hasn't been a major on the LPGA Tour since 2000, but it will have the feel of one this week with teenage phenom and local favourite Brooke Henderson headlining a strong field.

Henderson, ranked No. 10 in the world, undoubtedly will have a huge gallery when play began today at the Ottawa Hunt and Golf Club, where she is an honorary member.

TORONTO—“Get Right Witcha” by Migos was blasting in the Blue Jays' clubhouse, with team attendants and players quickly packing up after a 10-game homestand so they could catch a flight to Chicago for a matinee game today against the World Series champion Cubs.

A 7-3 record on that homestand—punctuated by a 5-3 win over the Tampa Bay Rays last night—has energized the team.

Vegas defends crown at Canadian Open

OAKVILLE, Ont.—This year there were no video calls to be made when Jhonattan Vegas won the RBC Canadian Open.

He had brought his wife and daughter with him so they could see him win the PGA Tour event—again—in person.

Hadwin, Taylor reunited at Canadian Open

OAKVILLE, Ont.—When Adam Hadwin and Nick Taylor begin the opening round of the RBC Canadian Open this afternoon, it's going to feel more like a trip down memory lane than a national championship on the PGA Tour.

They're paired up in the first round of a tournament for the first time since their teenage years when they sometimes played together at Ledgeview Golf and Country Club.

NAIG more than sports
