The du Maurier Trophy

Awarded to the Canadian Open champion from 1971 through 1993.

In 1971 a new sponsor, The Imperial Tobacco Company of Canada, introduced this trophy.  It was originally called the Peter Jackson Trophy before being renamed The du Maurier Trophy.  This trophy was unique in the golf world as a special base was created with a soapstone carving being given to the winner to keep permanently.  A different piece of Inuit art would be added yearly, the carving would feature various subjects including wildlife and natives made of soapstone, and sometimes featuring horn or bone.  The first recipient was Lee Trevino.
