The field this week has 156 players featuring world number 1 Dustin Johnson, Bubba Watson, Sergio Garcia, U.S. Open victor Brooks Koepka, Tony Finau, and Jhonattan Vegas who is trying to be the first player since 2011 to win back-to-back-to-back tournaments. Live coverage continues on Friday from 8pm on Sky Sports Golf. He's rallied on the final day of play each of the past two Canadian Opens, joining Leo Diegel (1924, 1925; 1928, 1929), Sam Snead (1940, 1941), James Douglas Edgar (1919, 1920), Jim Ferrier (1950, 1951) and Jim Furyk (2006, 2007) as the only back-to-back champions in the Canadian Open's 114-year history.

"I think 20-something-under is going to win, so we'll forget about it when I get home", Garrigus said. "I think you'll see the field - it's a great field this year - and I think it's only going to get better with being the week before (the U.S. Open)". A T-5 finish at Glen Abbey that included a third-round, course-record-tying 62 wound up being just what he needed.

Nick Taylor of Abbotsford, B.C., was the low Canadian.

In the bottom tier, I'm choosing Harold Varner III pretty much based on his recent form.

"That's a tricky hole for me", the 39-year-old said. He can probably tell you what kind of shots I'm hitting just by like watching on TV. "I think the last couple years when it's been firm, we've been in a little bit of drought condition".

On his final hole, Hearn's approach shot went long, and then he saved par with a six-inch putt to close out with a four-under 68, matching the opening-round score of World No. 1 Dustin Johnson.

"If you were in the fairway, it was much easier to attack, but you could still play from the rough, so I did that too often today but was fortunate to get away with it", said Schenk, a PGA Tour rookie who is fighting to keep his card with a handful of tournaments left on the schedule. And I finally closed one off and made a couple birdies towards the end there. "And the golf course is absolutely pure", Garrigus said.

Close friends Mackenzie Hughes and Corey Conners shared the stage on Wednesday at Glen Abbey and talked about what it meant, as Canadians, to play in our national open.

"This golf course is a great golf course, a good test, especially after last week", he said.

There's a reason no Canadian has won this tournament since 1954 when Pat Fletcher accomplished the feat: Golf is tough. "I love it here".
