Canadian golf history was made at Toronto's Oakdale Golf and Country Club on Sunday.

Abbotsford, BC's Nick Taylor drained a 72-foot eagle putt on the fourth playoff hole to defeat Tommy Fleetwood, win the RBC Canadian Open, and become the first Canadian golfer to win the men's national championship since Pat Fletcher in 1954.

Taylor becomes the fourth Canadian to win on the PGA Tour this season and the first to win a PGA event on Canadian soil since Mike Weir won the now-defunct Greater Vancouver Open in 1999.
