Uxbridge – Finishing round one action yesterday at the RBC Canadian Open tied for 1st after a blistering 67, Team Ontario alumni Corey Conners started his second round in the 1:10 PM group off the first tee, looking to replicate his play and make up ground on the morning groups, as he slid down to a tie for 6th given the increased scoring across the field this morning under rainy conditions.

Three Ontario competitors were in the morning group, including Mackenzie Hughes (Dundas Valley G&CC), Mike Weir (Huron Oaks), and Taylor Pendrith  (Richmond Hill CC). They are now in the clubhouse after rounds of 77 (+2), 70 (-2) and 72 (-3) respectively.

Fans attending the Open for the afternoon session will be treated to eight of the eleven Ontario players on course with tee times running from 1:10 pm through 2:27 pm off both the 1st and 10th holes. Afternoon action will feature David Hearn (Brantford G&CC) (76 in Rd 1), Conners (Listowel GC), Michael Glicic (Whistle Bear) (75 in Rd 1), Ben Silverman (previously Mandarin GC) (71 in Rd 1), Daniel Kim (Oshawa G&CC) (82 in Rd 1), Sebastian Szirmak (Emerald Hills GC) (81 in Rd 1), Johnny Travale (Hamilton G&CC) (73 in Rd 1) and Drew Nesbitt (Horseshoe Valley) (73 in Rd 1).

With so much local flavor in the afternoon pairings, and the first RBCx concert on tap for the evening after play is completed, fans are in for a great afternoon and evening with the clearing weather.

Spectators are reminded to plan ahead and be aware of parking and shuttle locations to gain access to the grounds.
