He has won the past two editions of the U.S. Open and the past two playings of the PGA Championship.

"It doesn't really matter about the result". I enjoy a tough test of golf, and that's what you're going to get at a U.S. Open. "I just want to feel confident leaving". I think that Dustin Johnson will put up a good defence.

The 30-year-old Northern Irishman heads to Hamilton looking to build momentum into the third major of the year and on the back of a disappointing performance at the Memorial Tournament.

"Yeah, that name has come up in the previous year", Koepka said when he was asked if he had heard of Willie Anderson, the Scot who won the U.S. Open in 1901 and then became the only player to win three in a row starting in 1903. As long as I can leave feeling confident, striking the ball very well, starting it where I want to, finishing where I want to, hitting some good putts.it doesn't matter if they do go in or not.

Defending champion Dustin Johnson will be another looking to make an impact through this weekend.

Officials have presented a Hamilton course with plenty of rough, which prompted a thumbs up from Koepka. "You know, it's a great sporting town", said Koepka.

From this year's field, only Piercy and Furyk have won the RBC Canadian Open on this course.

Johnson was not in the field when the 2012 RBC Canadian Open was held here, so he really is unfamiliar with the rolling, parkland-style layout. Lowry finished 12 in this tournament a year ago.

The PGA Tour schedule has it's one and only stop in Canada this week at the RBC Canadian Open.

McIlroy, the world's fourth-ranked player, is playing some of the best golf of his career. "I'll be fine. I've taken longer breaks before and come out and played well".

According to the latest oddsmakers, Dustin Johnson is the favorite this weekend, as he has 11/2 odds to win. I'll be up for it, I know that.

Fans fume on Twitter at rain-scarred event
In the World Cup 2019 , the Indian Cricket Team is going to face New Zealand after defeating Australia Cricket Team by 36 runs in their second match.

"Obviously this isn't just a preparation week", McIlroy said.

And he's the No. 1 player in the world. He played nine holes at Hamilton on Wednesday and will see the back nine for the first time during round one.

Noah Ruttle had a pair of singles for the Knights, who were up 4-1 in the team's second game of the double-knockout tournament before rain halted action.

"I like the front nine".

"It's a very strategic golf course".

"Seemed pretty good", Koepka said of his form.

Koepka is among a number of stars in the field this week at the Hamilton Golf and Country Club in Ontario, including Rory McIlroy, Dustin Johnson, Bubba Watson, Justin Thomas, all of whom are expected to make the trek to Pebble Beach next week.

The Hamilton has hosted the Canadian Open five times, but only three since the turn of the century.

"I think it's a huge advantage".

"The rough is pretty thick as well, so if you miss it in the rough you're doing well to get it up by the green. I got a plan together and to be familiar with the terrain, know what to expect and just definitely an added comfort level for the Canadians".

This will be the first time that superstar Rory McIlroy of Northern Ireland will be competing at Canada's national championship.
