Garrigus shines early at Canadian Open, affirms love for Glen Abbey

Bubba Watson almost hit himself off a tree at Canadian Open

That's four made cuts and two Top 11 finishes from a guy you only need to spend $6,700 on.

Hearn, who was third at the Canadian Open on this very course in 2015, was rolling along, bogey-free and five-under with just three holes to go, until he hit the par-three No. 7 known as The Rink.

Robert Garrigus made a birdie after a rock saved his ball from water and had a one-stroke lead at 9-under 63 on Thursday when play in the RBC Canadian Open was suspended because of risky weather.

Jhonattan Vegas, trying to become the first to win three consecutive Canadian Opens, looked poised to make a move until bogeys on two of his last three holes forced the Venezuelan to settle for a two-under 70, dropping him eight back of the lead. Live coverage continues on Friday from 8pm on Sky Sports Golf.

"But overall, I made so many good swings today, I'll forget about that quickly".

"I think it will be good for the golf tournament", said Johnson, who has twice been runner-up at this event, most recently in 2016 when he was T2 with Jon Rahm and Martin Laird.

"I think it's a much more hard shot now", Conners said. A rainstorm suspended play for over two hours in the late afternoon before the PGA Tour tournament resumed for a little over an hour. I'm going to get one down here eventually.

"I pretty much kept it in play and putted wonderful, that's the only way I could describe it today", said the 31-year-old American, who opened and finished her round with birdies.

Nick Taylor of Abbotsford, B.C., was the low Canadian.

"That's a tricky hole for me", the 39-year-old said.

So, who will be the Great White North hope at the RBC Canadian Open this year? "I feel like the game is in pretty good form right now, and I'm excited about this week". "I think the last couple years when it's been firm, we've been in a little bit of drought condition. I feel comfortable, I feel like I belong, I'm ready to come out here and try to win". "I mean, I was walking on the fairway on No. 8, and it just felt like you were walking on carpet, and you get up on the green, and it's like grass".

Baddeley is alongside world No.1 Dustin Johnson (66), Zac Blair (67) and Joaquin Niemann (67) at 10 under. "And the golf course is absolutely pure", Garrigus said. And I finally closed one off and made a couple birdies towards the end there.

"My caddie looked at me and was like, 'Oh, that's in the auto, '" Gligic said, smiling and mostly dried out after a round of 64.

"I don't know. It's great".

Previous year at Glen Abbey, Garrigus shot a 10-under 62 in the third round to match the course record. You've got a WGC next week, and then another major to follow it up.

Nicklaus's brief was to create a course that could provide a home for the Canadian Open, and to be designed not only for the tournament player but for the average golfer. The only thing that his record at the Canadian Open is missing is a first place finish, and playing the way he's been playing (with the exception of this past weeks Open performance) I believe he can do it.
