Michael Thompson returns to North America this week to play in the Canadian Open. This year's Canadian Open is taking place at the Hamilton Golf and Country Club in Ancaster, Ontario located aboot 50 miles west of Toronto. The tournament rotates through Canada, so although he played in this tournament last year, he's on an all new course.
If Michael plays well, he may be rewarded with entrance into next week's Bridgestone Invitational. The top 50 on the OWGR list are invited and he currently sits at 57th.
Michael tees off at 12:40 ET with Nick O'Hern and Spencer Levin.
It will be televised 3-6pm ET on the Golf Channel.
