Canada's premier golf tournament is returning to Glen Abbey Golf Club in 2013.
Officials announced Friday that the course will host the RBC Canadian Open for the 26th time, and for the first time since 2009, on July 22-28, 2013.
Past Glen Abbey champions include Greg Norman, Nick Price and Tiger Woods. Woods won the 2000 tournament with a 216-yard 6-iron shot that landed on the green on the 18th hole.
This year's tournament is at Hamilton Golf and Country Club from July 23-29.
The last Canadian to win the Canadian Open was Pat Fletcher in 1954. No Canadian has won the tournament at Glen Abbey, but Mike Weir lost in a playoff to Vijay Singh in 2004.
