 width=The PGA Tour remains outside the United States this week with the RBC Canadian Open.

Glen Abbey returns as the host this year for the 27th time. The course had hosted 22 straight Canadian Opens before the Royal Canadian Golf Association began rotating courses throughout Canada.

Last year at Royal Montreal, Tim Clark fired a 5-under 65 in the final round to rally past Jim Furyk and win for the second time on the PGA Tour. Furyk had a 12-footer for birdie to force a playoff, but failed to convert.

Clark, who has missed time over the last few years with on-going elbow issues, tied the tournament scoring record with his total of 263. Johnny Palmer set that mark in 1952 and Scott Piercy matched it in 2012.

Among those expected to headline the field are Furyk, Bubba Watson and Jason Day. There are 27 players that competed at St. Andrews slated to play this week, but that number could dwindle with the Monday finish at the Open Championship.

Clark is also back in the field after a lengthy break earlier this year. Following a pair of top-30 finishes in Hawaii, the South African was out of action until late June when he returned at the Travelers Championship. Clark missed the cut there and also missed the cut in his last start at the John Deere Classic.

Clark had to skip the Open Championship due to visa issues.

The Canadian contingent will be Graham DeLaet, Nick Taylor and David Hearn. Taylor, who won the Sanderson Farms Championship last fall, was the first Canadian to win on the PGA Tour since 2007.

Missing the event will be 2003 Masters champion Mike Weir, who announced Friday he's taking time off from the tour.
