  • Why no Tiger in the Canadian Open ?

    this is not a Tiger hating thread - but why doesn't this guy play in our National Championship. I have never figured this out. The guy can't come into Canada and play for four days and make a few Canadian friends, and maybe even win the tournament as a bonus. I get angry when some of these guys just figure - well it's Canada - could be cold - not enough cash ... ya da, ya da. I thought this guy was going to change the way he did things - change the way he played - change the tournaments he was going to play in.

    I think I wrote exactly the same question last year.

    Why can't he play ?

    Tiger has played in the Canadian Open numerous times. Up until this year Tiger's schedule was always Majors, WGC's, Any sponsor events(Buick, Disney, etc..) and any major events(Memorial, Players, etc..) For about 20 tourneys a year. Most tournaments have NEVER seen Tiger and if they did it was in 1997. He can play, he doesn't want to. Alot of these tournaments have never seen most of the top 10 guys. No one at the BC open complains that Mike Weir never comes because nobody cares. Last I checked he's been here alot more than Mickelson or some of the other top players in the world. Keep ripping Tiger though...it's easy....

        Its not a matter of 'can't', its won't. He is all about the records and trophies. Once he won the triple crown (US, Cdn, British Open), you could guarantee he wouldnt be back for the Canadian Open. Its a shame, but the schedule clashes with the British Open as well.

              No....I'm a human being fan. This is starting to get ridiculous. He was a God a year ago and now we find out he likes to bone waitresses and it's just lets find a new thing to rip him on. No pro plays every event and the people who whine about him not playing Canada are only doing it because they are huge fans and want to see him...but seriously, when was the last time Mickelson was here and how many times ahs here been here in the past 15 years, no one gives him crap!

                the only hope if RBC sponsors him like what they did with AK.

                  I'm not ripping Tiger. I just want to know why he doesn't play in the National Championship. For that matter why doesn't Michelson. at the beginning of the thread I said that was not a ripping Tiger thread. For the record I can change the question and ask why don't the top 6 in the World play in Canada. It just kind of hits a nerve because we have a great tournament.

                    Any event scheduled the week after a major is going to struggle to draw top players, being scheduled right after the British Open is even tougher. It's impressive that they have as many guys playing as they do given their placement on the schedule.

                      Mickelson is not in the same class. PGA Tour events have been always "events with Tiger" and the rest.

                        Re: Why no Tiger in the Canadian Open ?

                        I apologize then. You did say that and you said you asked the same question last year. I just get sick of people taking shots at Tiger for sdoing things they'd kill to have the opportunity to do. Unfortunately, the Canadian Open doesn't mean nearly as much as it used to as a National Open. The PGA tour royally bending it over the table in terms of schedule and the revovling courses have made tour players less likely to come and less likely to establish a relationship with the tournament. Not to mention clearing customs, I know all this may not seem like much to us...But for the guys that have tons of money and status it's really north worth it for them IMO

                            I don't take shots at Tiger, but are you saying that people would kill for the opportunity to screw around on their wife?

                              People would kill to have the opportunity to do many of the things he does, like skipping the Canadian open and yes, being able to have just about every woman they want.

                              edit: for clarity, I'd kill to skip the canadian open because that would mean that i was invited and so important and busy that i couldn't make it
