Count Calgary's Stephen Ames as someone who wants to see the RBC Canadian Open shifting to different sites all over the country.
"I've talked to a couple of members and the chairman [at St. George's] and they want to do it every six and seven years, which is fine," Ames said. "I know that there are a few other golf courses in the Toronto area that we can go to, that can host the Canadian Open. There are over 600 golf courses in this area alone. I'm sure we could find a couple that are adequate enough to host the Canadian Open."
Ames, who shot 73-70 on the weekend to slide down the leaderboard, has positive things to say about Shaughnessy Golf and Country Club in British Columbia, which is holding the event in 2011.
"The only dilemma there is probably the flight's going to be, what, two hours longer?" Ames said.
