RBC Canadian Open: First Round

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.

  • Fed Ex Ranking: 23
  • Five straight birdies with a bogey free round.
  • 12/14 Fairways T1
  • 17/18 T2
  • Putts Per GIR 1.647 (25th)

Just behind him is a large group at -5.

  • Shane Lowry: Fed Ex Ranking 78, 4th in Putts Per GIR 1.462
  • Sungjae Im: Fed Ex Ranking 22, bogey free round
  • Nick Taylor: Fed Ex Ranking 71, run of 4 straight birdies
  • Erik Van Rooyen: 1st in Tee to Green
  • Roberto Castro: Fed Ex Ranking 90, bogey free round, 12/14 fairways, 1st GIR 18/18
