Wow, what a tournament this Canadian Open is turning out to be. 

Put aside all the comments about there not being enough stars here, or how it has a bad date on the schedule, and watch the golf. The eight holes-in-one are the most on any PGA tour event since 1971. It's nice to see Canada's own Mike Weir get in on the action.

This is the 100th anniversary of the Canadian Open. The tournament is currently being led by Retief Goosen and Nathan Green, who are both at 17-under after three rounds at Glen Abbey golf course.

But the real story is the PGA record for holes-in-one being smashed. And guess what—you get a free BMW convertible for a hole in one...if it's on the 15th hole.

This means four happy golfers are driving away with a new car, and four others, including Mike Weir, are left to buy their own.
