DJ’s parking lot dilemma, baseball bats & hockey sticks


Welcome to Canada! No they didn’t have to play with hockey
sticks Thursday, but Graeme McDowell did warm up with a baseball bat. Wrong kind of stick Graeme! The RBC Canadian Open teed off Thursday at
Glen Abbey Golf Course, with rookie and PGA TOUR winner Mackenzie Hughes leading the Canadians. Not even this tree on 1 could get in the way
of his 5-under, 67… But this car sure was in Dustin Johnson’s
way… Listen to his conversation with the rules
official closely. Sorry Dustin, we can’t move the car… Straight from his runner-up performance at
The Open, Matt Kuchar looked to be a little under the weather on Thursday – experiencing
dizziness during his round. Afterward he said he didn’t think it was
from travel and had never experienced something like that before. Kuch took a kneel on the 3rd hole… and had
a medic following him for a few holes to make sure he was ok. But he still managed to get in under par and
pulled off this tasty bunker shot from the lip on the 2nd, just before his dizzy spell
on the 3rd. Playing partner Bubba Watson had a bunker
save of his own from 26-yards out on 1… Bubba recorded his first bogey-free round
of the year and is just 1-stroke back. That’ll make him smile and an eagle for
Smylie Kaufman will spread the joy too… Kaufman’s approach and putt on the second
not only led to eagle – but the former LSU Tiger recorded four birdies to go with it
on the front nine. Always with a smile on his face, defending
champ Jhonattan Vegas put one close on the par 3, 7th. They did run into a mere 2-hour rain delay in the afternoon and had to play late into the evening. So far Mackenzie Hughes, 2-strokes back, looks
to have the best chance at breaking the 60-year drought – as he looks to become the first
Canadian since 1954 to win his country’s national championship. You can catch all the action on Friday starting
at 7am ET on PGA TOUR LIVE. I’ll see you there and Friday night in The
Takeaway.
