RBC Canadian Open - Day One
According to our recent visitor poll, Mike Weir is the fan favorite, and has unfortunately been struggling with a case of tendinitis. Weir finished the first round at 2 over par, 10 strokes off the leader Brent Delahoussaye. Delahoussaye, a 28 year old PGA TOUR rookie had seven birdies, an eagle and a bogey to take a two-stroke lead heading into tomorrow. Delahoussaye’s previous low round was a 66, which he shot at the John Deere Classic two weeks ago. Delahoussaye’s 8-under par 62 broke the previous course record of 64 set by Canadian Golf Hall of Famer Geroge Knudson in 1968.
Stephen Ames is currently the top placed Canadian at -3 after the opening 18 holes. John Daly, another fan favorite is currently sitting at -1.
It should be a great weekend as the remainder of the 2010 RBC Canadian Open continues to unfold.
