Masters (curling)

The Masters, currently known as the Canadian Beef Masters for sponsorship reasons, is a Grand Slam event on the men's and women's World Curling Tour. It is the second Grand Slam event and first major on the women's and men's tour. The event is an amalgamation of the men's World Cup of Curling and the women's Sun Life Classic. There was also a men's Sun Life Classic, which has been discontinued. The Sun Life Classic was an annual WCT event (but not a Grand Slam event) held every November at the Paris Curling Club, Brant Curling Club and the Brantford Golf & Country Club in the Brantford, Ontario area.[1] The World Cup was a Grand Slam event and was held in various locations across Canada, and was also previously known as the Masters.
