Hey Armchair! How's it going? I'm guessing that it should be a good tournament this week! If anybody would like, they can get additional information on this weeks tournament, plus see my top ten picks for the week over at Nicks Golf Palace. L8R!

Why isn't CBC or CTV providing coverage of our national championship this year. It looks like The Golf Channel and CBS are providing 3-hour coverage daily. How pathetic is that. Neither of the major Canadian networks sees fit to cover this event. CBC and CTV: YOU SUCK BIG TIME!!!

Picasso: Thanks for your comment. I went searching online again to find Canadian TV network coverage of your Open on the weekend, but could find none. What gives? Can anyone shed some light? Do you pick up a feed from U.S. coverage?
