The Champions Head North

The Champions are back from Scotland and headed for Canada and the Shaw Charity Classic.

Defending champion Doug Barron

Calgary hosts this week's event at the Canyon Meadows Golf & Country Club. The most interesting thing about this course is its elevation -- it's 4000 feet above sea level. That means the ball is gonna travel, folks. And since the course is only 7086 yards and par-70, and the event is only 54 holes, that means scores will probably be low.

At least as long as the guys can allow for the altitude. Doug Barron won at -18 last year.

Jerry Kelly is arguably the hottest player in the field, with two wins in his last 5 starts, but a lot of the other players are in pretty good form right now and, after a week's rest from the Senior OPEN, they should all be ready to go.

GC's coverage starts Friday at 9:30pm ET. (Yes, it looks like we're getting taped coverage this week.) But at least that means it won't be a choice between the Champions and the Ladies, as the AIG Women's Open is on USA.
