The PGA hits Vancouver this week with a field that’s considered the Canadian Open’s best in years. Here’s a look at some of the key players.



LUKE DONALD

The 33-year-old is fresh off crashing out of the British Open, failing to make the halfway cut. But he’s still on top of the world, ranked No. 1 on the tour.



MIKE WEIR

That Canada’s greatest golfer has never won the Canadian Open is one of sport’s great cruelties. Weir almost did it in 2004, and if you’re not rooting for him to get there again you’re a seriously cold human being.



RICKIE FOWLER

With his bright Puma hats, shaggy hair and pretty-boy look, the 22-year-old is like the Justin Bieber of professional golf.



DAVID DUVAL

His flame flickered out long ago, but Duval, 39, keeps trying to find a spark. He was No. 1 in the world for 15 great weeks in 1999, and went on to win the 2001 British Open — but hasn’t won since.



JOHN DALY

Daly is easily the most entertaining force on the PGA Tour. From his cigars to clown pants, even if he doesn’t win, Daly is a champion.



JIM FURYK

The 41-year-old was the 2010 PGA Tour player of the year. And he has won the Canadian Open twice, in 2006 and ’07. Expect him to vie for a third title this year.
