Who was Gordon Brydson? That is the question. The answer: He was one of Canada's best golfer's in his prime. Many people from Canada who play golf are very familiar with the fact that the last Canadian to win the RBC Canadian Open was Pat Fletcher in 1954. What most people don't know is that finishing second that year was Gordon Brydson. Pat Fletcher fired a 72 hole total of 280 -8 at Point Grey Country Club in Vancouver. At the time Fletcher was the first Canadian to win the National Championship in 40 years. However, it's the only time in the history of the Championship that two Canadians dueled for the prestigious title, a feat that may never be seen again. Brydson very easily could have won that week in 1954, but history was written differently and in the end he still had a great career as a golfer and builder in the game....
