Every year around this time, that question gets trotted out once more: When will a Canadian win the RBC Canadian Open? Its a difficult question that has no answer, really. Vans Old Skool Discount . It will happen when it happens. To give it some perspective, a Canadian hasnt won on the PGA Tour since Stephen Ames captured the Childrens Miracle Network Classic in 2009. So perhaps the first question we ask should be - when will the drought of a Canadian winning anywhere on the PGA Tour end? For a Canadian to win the Open at home, it means having his game peak on one particular week, on a course they may or may not like, while being pulled in many different directions by media, sponsors and friends while defeating a field of international stars that wont be laying down just because a guy has a maple leaf on his bag. Its a tall order, for sure. "Ive played I think 100 tour events, or 99 tour events in my career," said Graham DeLaet, the highest ranked Canuck in the world, "and I have yet to win one so I guess it would have to be a little bit of luck for it to happen here, but I feel like Im close to my first win and thered be no better place to do it than here." "I think winning a PGA Tour event is difficult let alone to do it here in Canada for a Canadian," added David Hearn. "That being said, this would be a wonderful place for it to happen. Such wonderful history at Royal Montreal. It would be an amazing achievement and something special. So if its not me Ill be pulling for another Canadian to do it as long as Im not the one in second." Yup, there is some symmetry with all this. The last Canadian to win the Open on home soil was Pat Fletcher, who spent much of his career as the head professional at Royal Montreal. And this club was where this tournament started, back in 1904 when just a handful of professionals and amateurs teed off in the pouring rain. Canadians have come close in the past. One of the first Opens I covered was in 1988, when Dave Barr tied for fourth. He was the leader in the clubhouse on Sunday afternoon when a massive thunderstorm rolled in and stopped play. When it resumed on Monday morning, the temperature dropped about 10 degrees and the wind was howling. I didnt think anyone could get in the house and defeat Barrs score but Ken Green did it to win. In 2004, Mike Weir came about as close to winning as possible when he lost in a playoff to Vijay Singh. That was in front of a ramped-up crowd that more or less expected it to happen. It was as if there was a hockey game going on at the 18th green. Weir understands perhaps better than anyone what it would take for a Canadian to win. "To end it, you just have to play great golf," he said. "Theres good competition here and great players and you just have to play four solid days and you have to do what you can do as a player. You have to know your own game. You have to know your strengths and weaknesses and try to minimize the mistakes, but you have to have fun too." In 2011, the unheralded Adam Hadwin shocked just about everyone – including himself – by nearly taking the title. He was just a PGA Tour Canada member at the time. He says that the attitude every player needs to take is that anythings possible. "Why not?" he asked. "Its not impossible, thats the way you look at it. Obviously, like you said, I dont think anyone expected me to do what I did in 2011, maybe including myself. I might have surprised myself back there at Shaughnessy, but if you put it together, why not?" But perhaps to get a different perspective, we need to go outside the Canadian perspective. Jim Furyk won his national championship but says that for a Canadian to do it would be massively more difficult just due to the outside pressure that gets put on them. "Its hard to win a national open, its hard to win a big tournament," he said, "but any time one of those guys gets close it becomes such a focus, it makes it that much more difficult." However its not as if the non-Canadians wouldnt like to see it happen. Brandt Snedeker won last years RBC Canadian Open and his caddie, Scott Vail, hails from Oshawa, Ont. He saw the joy on his bag-toters face after they combined to capture the Open.  "I can imagine winning a US Open what that would feel like to me," he said, "talking with Scott after last year, winning his national Open. It would mean the world to Graham or David or any other Canadian up here so if I cant win Im pulling of a Canadian to win because its a big deal for them and I know it would be special to see that get done." Will it happen this week? The odds say its difficult, but not impossible. But if nothing else, Id love it to happen so I dont have to ask the question again next year.

Paul George and Darren Collison each scored 17 points and Roy Hibbert added 11 points and nine rebounds for the Pacers (9-3), who won their third straight. http://www.cheapoldskool.us/ . The light-heavyweight champion and number one ranked pound-for-pound fighter in the world is on an 11-fight UFC winning streak, the longest in the history of the weight class.OAKLAND, Calif. - After reserve Marreese Speights finished a one-handed dunk over Travis Outlaw in the fourth quarter, teammates Andre Iguodala and Stephen Curry jumped off the Golden State Warriors bench and ran onto the floor in celebration. Speights stood at half court and encouraged the announced sellout crowd of 19,596 — or what was left of it, anyway — by waving his arms in the air. His teammates laughed, and so did almost everybody in the arena. Everybody, that is, except the Sacramento Kings. Klay Thompson scored 21 points, Curry had 13 points and five assists and the Warriors moved closer to securing a playoff berth by routing the Kings 102-69 on Friday night. "It was loud in there and my teammates were all the way on the court," said Speights, who had 12 points and 10 rebounds. "It was good to see support like that." The Warriors led 59-27 at halftime and 75-33 early in the third quarter, turning the game into a laugher. It was the fewest points Golden State has allowed this season and the fewest points Sacramento has scored. Not only did the Warriors (47-29) match last seasons win total, they also gained ground in the Western Conference playoff race. Golden State moved within 1 1/2 games of fifth-place Portland with six games to play after the Trail Blazers lost to Phoenix. "I just got a feeling well win more games than we did last year," Warriors coach Mark Jackson joked. "I got a strong feeling about that." DeMarcus Cousins finished with 19 points and 11 rebounds, and Rudy Gay scored 10 points for the rebuilding Kings (27-49), who looked lost and lethargic against their Northern California rivals. Golden State outshot the Kings 44.7 per cent to 32.1 per cent, which was a season low by a Warriors opponent and a season low for Sacramento. The Warriors also outrebounded the Kings 58-44 and forced 16 turnovers to sweep the season series (4-0) for the first time since going 5-0 against Sacramento in 1991-92. "We were tentative. I thought we played soft for long stretches," Kings coach Michael Malone said. "We were not aggressive, we were very hesiitant and they had us on our heels. Cheap Vans Old Skool For Sale. quot; The Warriors crushed the Kings even while playing without starting centre Andrew Bogut and power forward David Lee. It was the fifth straight game Lee has missed because of a strained right hamstring and the fourth game in a row Bogut has sat out with a bruise in his pelvis and groin area. Jermaine ONeal had 13 points and nine rebounds, and Draymond Green added 10 points and 10 rebounds to help Golden State outscore Sacramento 54-28 in the paint. With Golden States starting big men sidelined, the coast was clear for Cousins to dominate down low. Instead, Sacramentos centre picked up two fouls in the first 1:48, Malone was called for a technical foul trying to defend him and the Warriors shut down Sacramento the rest of the quarter — and most of the game. The Kings started 1-for-11 shooting, including missing 10 straight shots and committing eight turnovers during a span of nearly nine minutes. The Warriors whipped the crowd into a frenzy after converting all those turnovers into a flurry of fast-break dunks. "It happened pretty fast, but once it started to happen, I just think guys got rattled," said Cousins, who spent most of the fourth quarter on the bench with a towel over his head. "We just never really recovered." With most of the team struggling and point guard Isaiah Thomas out for the sixth consecutive game with a bruised right quadriceps, the Kings provided little punch — and even less fight. Green caught a full-court pass from ONeal for an uncontested layup early in the third quarter. ONeal put his hands in the air as if he was signalling for a touchdown. The Warriors went ahead 75-33 moments later and spent most of the fourth quarter laughing and smiling on the bench, especially after Speights slam. NOTES: The fewest points the Kings had scored in a game previously this season came in a 99-79 loss to San Antonio on March 21. ... The fewest points the Warriors had allowed was in a 76-74 loss to the Spurs on Nov. 8. ... The Warriors finished 8-0 at home against Pacific Division opponents for the first time in franchise history.
