Zary golf: Canadian Amateur returns to Saskatoon, first time since Nick Taylor won it in 2007

This year’s event will be held at both the Riverside Country Club and the Saskatoon Golf and Country Club from Aug. 2-8.

Canada’s biggest amateur golf event is returning to Saskatoon this summer.

With play now spreading to two different courses in 2024, the Canadian Men’s Amateur is even bigger than it was back in 2007 when 19-year-old Nick Taylor captured the title at Saskatoon’s Riverside.

This year’s event will be held at both the Riverside Country Club and the Saskatoon Golf and Country Club from Aug. 2-8.

Of course, Taylor has gone on to play on the PGA Tour, where he has four wins, including the 2023 RBC Canadian Open. Taylor has collected $17,432,643 in official money through 270 events since joining the tour in 2015.

Taylor won the 2007 event after playing 38 holes in match play against Calgary’s Michael Knight in the final.

This will be the 119th playing of the Canadian Men’s Amateur championship this summer as one of the most esteemed events on the Golf Canada calendar, showcasing top-tier men’s golf talent.

Past champions of the Canadian Men’s Amateur have won 11 times on the PGA Tour.
