TORONTO, July 24, 2009 — To cap off the 100th playing of the RBC Canadian Open, the RBC Avion Golf Challenge Finals will be held at Glen Abbey Golf Club immediately following the final round of the RBC Canadian Open, where the top five finalists will take their best shot at a 60-foot putt on the 18th green.

Each finalist has the chance to win $100,000. For every winning putt, an additional $100,000 will be shared between two charities - $50,000 to the Mike Weir Foundation and $50,000 to the Reach Out Centre for Kids (ROCK).


RBC Avion Golf Challenge Finals


The RBC Avion Golf Challenge is a unique six-hole, 1,700-square foot putting green that was built in the heart of downtown Toronto at Royal Bank Plaza, where participants can test their skills and nerves as they putt to win for themselves and for charity.
