Rory McIlroy will be hoping to successfully defend the RBC Canadian Open when he competes in this year's tournament. 
The Northern Irishman won the previous event which was held in 2019 and the next two events were cancelled due to COVID-19.
McIlroy won the tournament by seven strokes in Hamilton, Ontario after he shot a final-round 61 to clinch the trophy.

Therefore, the accomplished golfer became the sixth golfer to win the career Triple Crown (possessing the PGA Tour's three oldest events by winning the three national championships).
McIlroy, who employs the interlocking grip on full shots, won the Open in 2014, the US Open in 2011, and the Canadian Open as he completed a Triple crown.
The year 2022 has seen the man nicknamed Rors come close to completing a career grand slam when he finished second at the Masters' Tournament in April.  
Having finished 18th at the recent 2022 Memorial Tournament, Rors will be looking to clinch his 21st trophy on the PGA Tour by winning the Canadian Open.

“This year is a lot more positive. My golf game’s in a much better place, and I think at this point I just have to stay as patient as possible," McIlroy said.
"Know that if I keep playing the golf that I’m playing, chances are going to present themselves and I’m going to give myself a few more chances this year to not just win majors.
"But to win golf tournaments, in general. So that’s the exciting thing, but yeah, last week for sure was disappointing, but I still have a lot to look forward to this year.”
Leo Diegel is the most decorated golfer in the history of the Canadian Open having won it a record four times in 1924, 1925, 1928 and 1929.
