And they are off, the start of a two week whirlwind with Canada and the United States Opens being played back to back.
Dustin Johnson, the defending champion shot a 267 (-23) at Glenn Abbey Golf Club last year. After the first round today, the 2nd ranked golfer is sitting T105 by shooting 71 (+1). The past few Canadian Opens held at Hamilton Golf and Country Club have seen the winners post an average -10. Even with his not so hot start, Dustin has the fire power to get back into contention.
Keegan Bradley leads by one after a 64 (-6), the first round at Hamilton Golf and Country Club.
