Livescore Sunday, April 21

Heavy is the head that wears the (Canadian) crown.

A whole lot is going on for Rory McIlroy this week. The winner of the past two RBC Canadian Opens has an opportunity for a three-peat at Oakdale Country Club, which may be secondary to the other golf headlines this week.

Away from the course, McIlroy has to deal, at least partially, with the fallout of the LIV Golf-PGA Tour merger. On June 6, the PGA Tour and LIV Golf opted to grill up their beef and join forces, much to the dismay of McIlroy (who still “hates” LIV Golf).

That may not be pleasant for McIlroy, who has become the de facto voice of PGA Tour players. To that end, all eyes will be on the golfer — both for what he does on the course and what he’ll continue to say and do off it.

Here’s how to watch McIlroy and the rest of the field in the RBC Canadian Open this weekend:
