Goydos bidding to be oldest winner

At 47 years, 1 month and 4 days, Paul Goydos would become the RBC Canadian Open’s oldest championshould he go on to win.

There’s certainly a lot of golf to be played, but Goydos has a share of the lead at the moment -- and he has a history of playing well on courses where hitting fairways is paramount.

In other words, this venue clearly fits Goydos’ game maybe more than any other that’s played host to the tournament. Prior to this year, Goydos had never posted back-to-back rounds in the 60s in this tournament, for example. And through his first four holes in the third round this year, Goydos is 1 under.

And just look at Goydos’ season to date: He’s made 12 cuts in 19 starts with his best finish a third-place at THE PLAYERS Championship -- where again hitting fairways was important.

As for who the oldest winner of this tournament, that honor belongs to Mark Calcavecchia who won the last time the tournament was held at Shaughnessy G&CC (2005). He won at 45 years, 2 months, 29 days.
