RBC Canadian Open: Round 3 Recap



Rory McIlroy        Round 3: 64 (-6)          Total: -13

Webb Simpson     Round 3: 67 (-3)          Total: -13

Matt Kuchar         Round 3: 69 (-1)          Total: -13

Rory McIlroy shot the low round of the day, 64 (-6), finding himself tied for the lead, going into the final day. After today Rory is sitting 2nd in GIR and 2nd in distance. If he keeps that up he has a great chance of winning. The fans were really cheering on Kuchar today, but he never seemed to gain any momentum. If Kuchar wants to win tomorrow he is going to need to play like he did the first two days.

Yesterday Nick Taylor had been the low Canadian for 36 holes; however, after a disappointing 73 (+3), he now finds himself five shots off pace. Adam Hadwin, after shooting  67 (-3) finds himself the lead Canadian, he also finds himself one shot behind the leaders at -12.

T4  Shane Lowry       Round 3: 66 (-4)    Total: -12

T4  Adam Hadwin     Round 3: 67 (-3)    Total: -12

T4  Brandt Snedeker Round 3: 69 (-1)    Total: -12

This is a pretty stacked group heading into tomorrows final round. While many would say their money is on Rory, mine would not, this weekend. Matt Kuchar has had a great year so far and my hope is it continues tomorrow with a win. It would also be nice to see the Canadian, Adam Hadwin, win his countries Open.
