Fan favourite and World Golf Hall of Fame member Fred Couples will play at the RBC Canada Cup to be played as part of Nova Scotia Open week in Halifax in early July.
Couples will headline Team World against the Canadian team of Mike Weir, Graham DeLaet and David Hearn. Two yet-to-be named players will join Couples on Team World for the RBC Canada Cup, scheduled for July 6.
Both teams will also add a player from the Nova Scotia Open.
“We’re thrilled to once again host this exciting event, and to be able to bring PGA Tour and Web .com Tour level excitement to golf fans in Atlantic Canada,” said Roger Howard, RBC’s regional president in the Atlantic provinces.
“With three of our Team RBC ambassadors – Mike Weir, Graham DeLaet and David Hearn – participating once again, the RBC Canada Cup and the Nova Scotia Open will be a treat for supporters of Canadian golf,” he added.
Couples is no stranger to Canadian golf, not only playing events here, but also being from Seattle, even if it is West Coast.
“I am excited to be part of the RBC Canada Cup and look forward to visiting Halifax this summer,” said Couples.
“I’m sure Canadian fans will cheer loudly for Team Canada and I look forward to playing in the international atmosphere as part of Team World. I anticipate a great competition and exciting experience for fans.”
