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
Born in Trinidad and Tobago, Ames became a Canadian citizen in 2003 and has four PGA Tour wins since.
Canada’s highest ranked golfer at the end of 2013 (36th in the world), DeLaet continues to set the standard in 2014.
Hearn represented Canada at 2013 World Cup of Golf, he is the second highest ranked Canadian in the world.
Arguably the greatest Canadian golfer of all-time, Weir won the 2003 Masters (seen below taking the Green Jacket from Tiger Woods) and has eight PGA Tour victories.
Fans can help the four Canadian golfers meet their goals for charity by tweeting the hashtags #RBCAmes, #RBCDeLaet, #RBCHearn and #RBCWeir.
Finally, here’s DeLaet taking up one of the weekly challenges in his bid to woo votes.
