Canadian Open: D.J. co-leads, Day just makes cut
Dustin Johnson continued his stellar summer play, shooting a one-under 71 in the second round of the RBC Canadian Open at Glen Abbey Golf Club in Oakville, Ontario, on Friday, and is tied for the lead with Luke List.
Johnson struggled early, recording bogeys on three of his first four holes. He turned it around, though, with a 32 on the closing nine. Johnson, the U.S. Open and WGC-Bridgestone Invitational winner, is looking for his third win in his last four starts.
"I really don't know what happened the first four holes. Just got off to a bad start. Hit it in a couple awkward spots," said Johnson. "Made some bad bogeys, but fought back and turned it around and felt like I played really nicely from 14 on in."
Jared du Toit, the 21-year-old amateur playing in his first ever PGA event, is among the 14 Canadians looking to keep the trophy in Canada for the first time since 1954. He was tied for the lead through 10 holes, but a triple bogey on the par-5 second hole was his demise, leading to a second round one-under 71. He is tied for third with Spaniard Jon Rahm and Kelly Kraft at six under.
World No. 1 Jason Day, defending his 2015 Canadian Open title, struggled to a four-over 76. He is one over for the tournament, tied for 46th with Emiliano Grillo and Chris Kirk.
The cut line was set at two over par, eliminating Matthew Fitzpatrick (three over), Graham DeLaet (five over) and Bryson DeChambeau (six over). DeChambeau has missed five of nine tournament cuts since turning professional.
