All five players fired in matching -7 under par opening rounds of 65, in the RBC Canadian Open, as play was suspended for the day due to bad light. after a rain delay had halted play earlier.

Ollie carded two Eagles today;

“I took advantage of the par fives and just played real consistently well off the tee.”

“I was in good positions all day. Just a solid round.”

In the huge group at -6 under par, are Smiley Kaufman and Bubba Watson, who was bogey free today, and has said he is practically nearly Canadian;

“We’re back to playing American golf this week. I know we’re in Canada, but I’m part-Canadian since I married a Canadian.” 

“I had a couple, I would say, maybe two wayward shots, two mistakes that I can think of.”

“Other than that, though, it was a good day.”

Smiley has had good starts before;

“I’ve had starts like that in my career, so it’s kind of tough to keep it going as low as it felt like I was going. Definitely was on point with everything to start the round.”

“It was one of those days kind of got some good breaks and I also got some bad breaks, too.”

“I was able to kind of stay as levelheaded as possible and just try to bounce back and do as well as I can the next hole.”

Top placed player from Canada is McKenzie Hughes, he is in the next large group at -5 under par, and said he was happy with his start, and his putter;

“If you hit it in the fairway, you can be aggressive.”

“The few fairways I missed, I was just trying to make par and you have to be a little bit defensive. All in all it was a great day.”

“Probably could be a bit better, but I made a couple nice par putts, too. Overall, happy with my start.”
