RBC Canadian Open

The RBC Canadian Open field is enjoying balmy, pleasant weather, which typically wouldn’t merit a comment. But it’s the exception rather than the norm for the pro events this week.

Martin Flores edged out in front of Matt Every, Gary Woodland, and Brandon Hagy on Friday and leads the way into moving day at -12.

Graham DeLaet and Mackenzie Hughes were the only Canadians in the field to make the cut and pre-tournament favorite Dustin Johnson is starting moving day at 8-under and trailing Flores by 4 shots. With a course that’s very receptive, look for DJ to move today.

Matt Kuchar seemed to have recovered from the waves of dizziness that marred his first round. He carded a 4-under second round, got himself up to 5-under and made the cut.  Kuch fans are relieved and glad to see their man getting back in the groove.

Henter Mahan, Harris English, Ernie Els, Curtis Luck, and Boo Weekley are among those who’ve gone home early.

Third round play begins today at Glen Abbey at 7:15am with the final group, Martin Flores and Matt Every, teeing off at 1:25pm.
