Dufner shines in wet Ontario

Home

Jason Dufner moved into the lead at the RBC Canadian Open before rain pushed rounds three and four to Sunday.

American Jason Dufner shot a brilliant nine-under-par round of 63 to move to the top of the leaderboard at the delayed RBC Canadian Open on Saturday but it was Mark Calcavecchia who was in record-breaking form in Ontario.
Heavy rain and lightning on Friday meant the whole field needed to complete their second rounds on Saturday and it was Dufner who fared the best as he moved on to 13-under.
It could have been even better for the 32-year-old, who has never won a PGA Tour title, but he bogeyed the 17th having previously racked up eight birdies and an eagle.
Jerry Kelly and Scott Verplank will begin their third rounds shortly one behind on 12 under after both shooting 67s while Australia’s Nathan Green – after a 65 – and Peter Tomasulo of the US are on 11 under.
A group of six players three off the pace includes Colombia’s Camilo Villegas, South African Retief Goosen and Martin Laird of Scotland.
Calcavecchia was tied for 17th on eight under after his 65 on Saturday, which included nine consecutive birdies from the 12th hole to the second – a PGA Tour record.
That took the American to 10 under par but the gloss was taken off his achievement somewhat by bogeys at the fourth and eighth.
Anthony Kim is usefully poised at nine under while England’s Luke Donald, who finished tied fifth at the Open last weekend, comfortably made the cut on four under.
John Daly, however, was among those to miss out, the colourful American struggling to a level-par 72 on Saturday to finish at five over.
