Furyk ties things up in Canada
Jim Furyk produced a superb round of golf to tie for the lead of the Canadian Open after two rounds at Royal Montreal.
The American carded a seven under 63 to match the course record and tie up with Tim Petrovic on 10 under for the tournament.
Furyk, coming off a fourth place finish at The Open Championship, had a flawless round. While he was three under on the front nine, it was his run of four birdies on the back nine that really made the round.
In his group were home favourite Graham DeLaet and fellow American Matt Kuchar. The duo also had successful rounds of 63 and 65 respectively.
“I don’t know if I’ve ever played in a group where we shot 63, 63, 65,” Furyk told the PGA Tour website
“I was giving ‘Kuch’ a bunch of crap for being the schlub in the group, shooting a 65.
“Winning any event is special. I’ve had a lot of success (in Canada) and really a lot of support here. But we’re only at the halfway point.”
Meanwhile, Petrovic had a solid round but a bogey on the 18th would set him back. Nevertheless, he was happy with his form in Canada.
“I have been hitting the ball really well for about the last three weeks,” said Petrovic.
“I’ve seen signs of some good rounds coming. Am I surprised? Maybe a little.”
DeLaet is tied for third with Kyle Stanley on eight under, while Northern Irishman Graeme McDowell is joined by American’s Scott Brown, Justin Hicks and Andrew Svoboda on seven under.
