A competitive field of the world's best players returns to Canada to compete for the crown at the RBC Canadian Open this weekend. Who will win the latest round of the PGA Tour come Sunday?

Nick Taylor returns to defend his title after a playoff victory over Tommy Fleetwood in 2023. 

Past Major winners who will tee off on Thursday include Rory McIlroy, Shane Lowry, Stewart Cink, Zach Johnson, Adam Scott, Gary Woodland, and Mike Weir.

These are our four selections that could win the title this weekend.

Tommy Fleetwood


Tommy Fleetwood was in great touch on the DP World Tour and PGA Tour at the start of his season, finishing T47 at the Sentry, winning the Dubai Invitational and placing T14 at the Hero Dubai Desert Classic.

Fleetwood's form dipped slightly after those performances, finishing T31 at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am, T10 at the Genesis Invitational, MC at the Arnold Palmer Invitational and T35 at the Players Championship. 

However, Fleetwood has regained his touch lately, placing T7 at the Valero Texas Open, T3 at the Masters, T49 at the RBC Heritage, T13 at the Wells Fargo Championship and T26 at the PGA Championship. 

The world's number-13th-ranked golfer has made two attempts to win the RBC Canadian Open, placing T6 in 2018 and 2nd in 2023. 

Fleetwood has been producing excellent results during the past few months and will look to go one better and win at the Hamilton Golf and Country Club this weekend. 

Sahith Theegala


Sahith Theegala had a superb start to his season on the PGA Tour, placing 2nd at the Sentry before he missed the cut at the Sony Open in Hawaii and finished T64 at the Farmers Insurance Open.

However, it did not take long for Theegala to bounce back to his best, placing T20 at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am, 5th at the WM Phoenix Open, T37 at the Genesis Invitational, T6 at the Arnold Palmer Invitational and T9 at the Players Championship, 

Subsequently, Theegala could not maintain his level of play, finishing T28 at the Texas Children's Houston Open, T45 at the Masters, MC at the Zurich Classic of New Orleans, T52 at the Wells Fargo Championship before returning to form by placing T12 at the PGA Championship. 

The American golfer has featured twice at the RBC Canadian Open Open, finishing T53 in 2022 and T38 in 2023.

Theegala played well in his previous start and will be challenging for the title in Canada come Sunday. 

Alex Noren


Alex Noren has been playing excellent golf on the PGA Tour since the beginning of March, placing T9 at the Cognizant Classic, T19 at the Players Championship, T11 at the Texas Children's Houston Open, T14 at the Valero Texas Open, 3rd at the CJ Cup Byron Nelson, T24 at the Wells Fargo Championship and T12 at the PGA Championship. 

Before that, Noren had been in fair form, finishing T42 at the Sony Open in Hawaii, T25 at the American Express, T26 at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am, and T53 at the WM Phoenix Open.

The Swede has made one appearance at the RBC Canadian Open, finishing T63 in 2019. 

Noren has been in top form on the golf course lately and has every chance of winning in Ontario if he can replicate his recent performances. 

Corey Conners


Corey Conners had a decent beginning to his season on the PGA Tour, finishing T33 at the Sentry Tournament of Champions, T57 at the Sony Open in Hawaii, T31 at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am, T28 at the WM Phoenix Open, T24 at the Genesis Invitational and T41 at the Cognizant Classic.  

Conners has improved his performances during his last eight tournaments, placing T18 at the Arnold Palmer Invitational, T13 at the Players Championship, T25 at the Valero Texas Open, T38 at the Masters, T44 at the RBC Heritage, T11 at the Zurich Classic of New Orleans, T13 at the Wells Fargo Championship, and T26 at the PGA Championship.

The 32-year-old Canadian's previous four RBC Canadian Open starts have yielded solid results of MC in 2018, MC in 2019, 6th in 2022 and T20 in 2023. 

Conners has not missed a cut on the PGA Tour all season and will have the advantage of playing on home soil this weekend. 

Verdict

Fleetwood's recent consistency makes him a contender at the RBC Canadian Open.

Theegala has the game to be a threat at the Hamilton Golf and Country Club and should enter calculations.

Noren has been showing positive signs he is ready to win on the PGA Tour.
 
Conners has come good in recent months and could surprise the others with victory in Ontario this weekend.
