Much like the eyes of the NBA world, the PGA Tour is in Canada this week. The Canadian Open at the Hamilton Golf and Country Club in Hamilton, Ontario, this weekend.

That’s a 45-minute drive from the Scotiabank Arena where the Raptors will try to close out their first NBA championship on Monday night. Even at the golf tournament, the Raptors are on everyone’s mind — and a “Let’s Go Raptors” chant broke out in the crowd Saturday.

Everyone outside the Bay Area is pulling for Toronto it seems.

For the record, England’s Rory McIlroy and Americans Matt Kuchar and Webb Simpson are all tied for the lead at -13 heading into the final round Sunday.
