MONTREAL (AP) Mike Weir was well aware that it has been 60 years since a Canadian won the Canadian Open.
"It's going to end at some point, so hopefully, if not myself, it's another Canadian that gets it done this week," said Weir, one of 19 Canadians in the field for the tournament that starts Thursday at Royal Montreal. "It would be nice to get the streak over so we don't have to talk about it."
Pat Fletcher, born in England, was the last Canadian winner, taking the 1954 event at Point Grey in Vancouver, British Columbia. Carl Keffer is the only Canadian-born champion, winning in 1909 and 1914. Albert Murray, a Canadian also born in England, won in 1908 and 1913.
