O Canada: Nick Taylor Snaps A 69-Year Drought And Wins The RBC Canadian Open

Jun 11, 2023

Thank you mother nature for making it rain once again and on this final Sunday nonetheless. It makes for a great time to export the Day 1 video for the Crier Youtube I will end up putting all 4 days on my youtube as well.

We had quite a pool of guys who can win but C.T. Pan shot a 64 yesterday and held the lead and like Rory is out for blood ready to defend his championship. Fan-fav Harry Higgs is in the mix, plus the Canadians Corey Conners and Nick Taylor are right there. Plus Rookies pick to win the whole thing Tommy Fleetwood shot a 64 as well yesterday and is paired with Pan in the final grouping, so buckle up and come along for the thrill ride that is about to be the final day here at the RBC Canadian Open.

The content is starting to come in hot and heavy and instead of saying what I got and who I saw here is a barrage of tweets for you all to look at.

What I witnessed at the rink and on 18, pales in comparison. The 4-hole playoff battle between Nick Taylor and Tommy Fleetwood ensued through the pouring rain, and on the 4th playoff hole, a 69-year-long drought came to an end.

Nick Taylor of Abbotsford BC is your 2023 RBC Canadian Open Champion. Period. Stop. It is a where were you when moment up there with the likes of the bat flip, the shot and the golden goal. This one will live in infamy as ‘the putt’. Welcome to icon status Nick Taylor.

A true underdog story. He shot a 75 on Thursday and then made the cut shot a 63 which is a course record and was just happy to be in play on Sunday, then when it mattered most, he drained a 72-foot eagle putt to bring the crown home, end a 69-year drought and is now and forever known as the 2023 RBC Canadian Open.

After the event was over I got to sit in on Nick’s press conference and ask him about the fanfare in the video below.

Now that the tournament is over, I want to thank you the readers and viewers and especially Chris Rooke for letting me cover the history-making 2023 RBC Canadian Open where Canadian Nick Taylor is your champion. Thank you and see you next time.

Hi, my name is Griff and I'm a complete sports nut. I love to play sports, watch sports and most importantly bet on sports too. If I'm not watching or betting on sports, you can find me on the golf course, between the pipes as your average beer league goaltender. Although sports take up most of my life, I also love spending time with my two dogs, streaming usually a 90's Simpson's or attempting to read more books.
