Canadian Open Green Vandalized with Bleach





A vandalism case was registered at the RBC Canadian Open. Ground maintenance personnel discovered that somebody had poured bleach on the 8th green at the Shaughnessy Golf and Country Club where the Canadian Open was held.

All the ground crew could do was to wash the bleach out and report the accident to the police. The vandalism was discovered at 6 a.m. when maintenance worker Rob Barr was making the rounds of the course. However, the bleach did not affect the performance of players in the tournament with a $5.2 million purse.

The accident certainly did not have a negative impact on the performance of Sean O’Hair who seized the Canadian Open title. The win came after a miserable PGA Tour campaign and missing ten out of seventeen cuts.

O’Hair recorded his fourth major win with a four-under 276, sealing the victory with a bogey. While it felt excellent to capture a win for the first time in two years and collect the second largest prize fund on PGA Tour, O’Hair confessed that there was not any second when he did not feel sick at the tournament.

The golf player will hopefully collect himself after getting the $936,000 check and leaping 104 places up the in the FedEx Cup table to No. 43.
