#RBCGolf4Kids helps golfers win for charities

#RBCGolf4Kids helps golfers win for charities

By Asif Hossain

With the return of golf to the Olympic Summer Games at Rio 2016, Canadians who spend their weekends on the links will find another outlet to express their passion for Team Canada.

Four Canadian golfers – Stephen Ames, Graham DeLaet, David Hearn and Mike Weir – are giving their communities one more reason to cheer them on two years out from Rio through #RBCGolf4Kids.

Golf Channel’s Todd Lewis explains in the video below:

Here are the four Canadians

Stephen Ames

Born in Trinidad and Tobago, Ames became a Canadian citizen in 2003 and has four PGA Tour wins since.
