The PGA Tour headed north of the border this week for the RBC Canadian Open. A few of the stars, like reigning champion Jhonnatan Vegas, were on hand for pre-tournament festivities, but it was golf legend Jack Nicklaus who stole the show.

Nicklaus took a break from the tee box and took a shot at Canada's national sport.

Just in case you didn't see the back of that jersey, he had a pretty special number embroidered on the back of it.

Nicklaus wasn't alone, however. Tyrone Van Aswegen took his shot as well.

Dustin Johnson -- the son-in-law of NHL legend Wayne Gretzky -- heads up the stars at this weekend's Canadian Open, who will be laying down the hockey sticks for some woods and irons. Action starts Thursday.
