Cheat Sheet: What you need to know for Saturday in golf

By Luke Kerr-Dineen

__Mahan hunting down the Canadian Open__At the British Open last week, Hunter Mahan shot 68 in the third round and played his way into the final group at Muirfield. This week, he shot an eight-under 64 in the second round, which included six birdies in seven holes.

It's still early, so who knows if he's going to win, but one thing is for sure: Mahan's consistency this season has been pretty breathtaking. In 19 events he's made 16 cuts, finished in the top 25 12 times, and has been in the final group after 54-holes in two consecutive majors. He's still looking for his first win of the season, but if he continues doing what he's doing, he won't be waiting for much longer.
