Golf One And Done pools go north this week for the RBC Canadian Open. With the Memorial and U.S. Open coming up in consecutive weeks, some big names are sitting this one out, but we still have Rory McIlroy returning to the same venue where he had great success in 2019, and a lot of the top Canadian golfers competing in their national tournament.

Let’s go through some things to consider in picking the RBC Canadian Open.

Last Week’s One And Done Pick Results

  • Davis Riley (+35000 to win pre-tournament) finished comfortably ahead of Scottie Scheffler and Keegan Bradley to win the Charles Schwab Challenge.
  • Riley was virtually unpicked in One And Done pools, meaning very few entries got big money value last week.
  • Scheffler was picked in about 1% of entries (as this was a lower value event) while Keegan Bradley also had moderate pick popularity of around 2%.
  • Pick popularity was somewhat spread out last week, with Harris English (missed cut), Collin Morikawa (tied for 4th), Brian Harman (tied for 24th), Tony Finau (tied for 17th), Jordan Spieth (tied for 37th) and Max Homa (missed cut) often showing up as among the most popular picks, in the 5% to 15% range in many pools.

RBC Canadian Open One And Done Pick Strategy: Purse Info

The RBC Canadian Open has a total prize purse of $9,400,000 with $1,692,000 to 1st place. It is the highest purse size of the non-Signature events and Majors remaining. However, its placement on the schedule, ahead of a lengthy run of bigger events, means the field is missing several of the top players.

You want to balance future value with current win odds, but Rory McIlroy is really the only golfer you should definitely save given the purse size differences between using him in an upcoming Major or at next week’s Memorial. The other players this week are all at least in the discussion.
