With an 8-under-par 35-29=64, Adam Hadwin co-medaled at today's open qualifier for the Farmers Insurance Open at El Camino Country Club in Oceanside, Calif.

The Canadian drilled 11 birdies to carry one bogey and one double. He started his loop with birdies at 10 and 11, and then picked off three consecutive beginning at the 15th hole. After making the turn, he rolled his sixth birdie in at the second hole, and then ran the table from the fifth hole into the clubhouse. Mark Baker shared medalist honors at 8-under 32-32=64 thanks to an eagle and seven birdies against just one bogey. Former PGA TOUR member Brad Adamonis (6-under 33-33=66; 9 birdies, 1 bogey, 1 double) and Michael McCabe (6-under 36-30=66; 1 eagle, 6 birdies, 2 bogeys) filled the other two berths into the tournament proper.

Round one of the RBC Canadian Open was suspended due to darkness at 8:48 pm ET, with play set to resume at 8:20 a.m. Friday morning.

The field of 156 golfers nearly all completed their rounds today, despite a 1 hour, 55 minute, delay due to weather. There were just seven threesomes still on the course when the horn sounded. One of the last to finish was Martin Flores, who pieced together a 6-under-par 33-33=66 in round one. The highlight was an early eagle at the par-5 second where he belted a 344-yard drive to leave him just 170 yards on his second shot. He stuck that approach to 3'11" for a tap-in eagle. This is the second consecutive stellar start for Flores who opened with a 6-under 65 last week to co-lead at the Barbasol Championship. He would go on to finish T18.

PGA TOUR rookie Ollie Schniederjans breezed through Glen Abbey Golf Club, signing for a bogey-free, 7-under-par 32-33=65 in round one of the RBC Canadian Open, good for a share of the clubhouse lead alongside Hudson Swafford, Brandon Hagy, Kevin Chappell, and Matt Every.

The Georgia Tech product kicked off his week on the back nine and made the turn at 4-under, despite carding seven pars. That means he picked up a pair of eagles, first in the hole-out variety (46'10") at the par-5 13th and then a more traditional eagle at the par-5 18th, rolling in a putt from 14'7". Schniederjans did most of his damage off the tee (+2.3 strokes gained off-the-tee), as he striped 11 (of 14) fairways while blasting nine drives of 300 yards or more. The hatless hero is 16-for-22 on the season but still searching for his first PGA TOUR win. This is the second time he's led/co-led after R1 and also the second straight event he's co-led after R1 (John Deere Classic, T39).

Kevin Chappell put on a scoring bonzanza in round one of the RBC Canadian Open, firing a 7-under-par 31-34=65 to share the early clubhouse lead with Hudson Swafford, Brandon Hagy, and Matt Every.

Chappell was a part of the afternoon wave that had to sit through a near-two hour weather delay. It didn't slow him down any, and likely helped him as the post-weather scoring conditions were prime. Chappell took full advantage of the conditions, and the par 5s, today. Starting on the back nine, he circled a birdie at the par-5 13th before landing his approach to 14'2" at the par-5 16th and rolling it in (from the fringe) for an eagle. Just after the turn, he converted a second eagle, in very similar fashion. This time he kicked in his eagle (from the fringe) from 15'7" to play the par 5s at 5-under today. This will go in the books as his third career first-round co-lead, with the last two resulting in finishes of T13 (2014 PGA Championship) and T2 (2016 TOUR Championship).

Matt Every rocketed out of the gate with a bogey-free, 7-under-par 32-33=65 during round one of the RBC Canadian Open, sharing an early clubhouse lead on Thursday afternoon.

Every hasn't found a top 25 since February of 2016 but he's not afraid to hang a low number, now and again. Most recently, it was a 6-under 64 in R1 of the FedEx St. Jude Classic to share the first-round lead. He's now in a similar position after circling seven birdies while keeping a clean card. The Florida Gator landed just 13 greens in regulation today but gained 2.961 strokes putting to save the day. He ended the day with six putts converted from 9'9" or longer. If this co-lead holds then it will be Every's sixth career lead/co-lead after R1 on TOUR, with four of them resulting in top 30s but one fading to T66. With prime scoring conditions on deck, he'll need to keep his foot on the gas this week.

Making his PGA TOUR debut at the RBC Canadian Open, Johnny Ruiz smoothed a 5-under-par 34-33=67 to place himself just two strokes off the early pacesetters at the top.

Ruiz currently ranks 2nd on the Mackenzie Tour's Order of Merit, so playing north of the border is right in his comfort zone. It's always a question to how well form translates across tours, but Ruiz had no issues today. He leaned heavily on the short game. The 23-year-old split half of the potential 14 fairways and landed half of the greens, as well. Ruiz would make up for the middling approach game but splashing home five putts from the 8-to-12 foot range before his day was done, walking off the course with 3.226 strokes gained putting. The youngster should consider this a great start to his PGA TOUR career, but he'll need to tidy up the approach game if he wants to hang around near the top for three more rounds.

Brandon Hagy bombarded Glen Abbey Golf Club during round one of the RBC Canadian Open, walking off the course with a 7-under-par 31-34=65 on his scorecard, good for an early share of the clubhouse lead alongside Hudson Swafford.

The big hitter split just six (of 14) fairways and landed a ho-hum 12 greens in regulation. The UC-Berekley product took advantage of the par 5s, as you'd expect, circling birdies on all four of them. However, it was his flat stick that carried him today. Hagy splashed home six putts from outside 10 feet, and also added three par-savers from the 7-to-9 foot range. Hagy would walk off the course gaining 5.44 strokes putting. If this co-lead holds by end of day, it will go in the books as his first lead/co-lead after ANY round on the PGA TOUR.

World No. 46 Bubba Watson twirled a bogey-free, 6-under-par 33-33=66 during round one of the RBC Canadian Open, placing him one stroke off the early lead in Oakville, Ontario.

The big hitter made it look easy today, pelting 16 greens in regulation despite finding just eight (of 14) fairways. By day's end he gave himself 10 scoring chances from inside 14 feet, converting on six of them. Watson would maintain momentum with a 6'10" par-saver at the par-4 first, just after the turn. The lefty lipped out a couple putts today, but overall has nothing to complain about after a brilliant opening round. This will be the first time he's positioned himself inside the top 10 after R1 since the 2016 Travelers Championship. After a gutsy T27 at last week's Open Championship, Watson appears to be rounding into form just ahead of the FedExCup Playoffs.

Hudson Swafford torched the course at Glen Abbey Golf Club, piecing together a 7-under-par 31-34=65 to separate from the field during round one of the RBC Canadian Open, staking his claim as the early clubhouse leader as the afternoon wave just gets underway.

Swafford set the tone early with five straight birdies, kicking off with a 2'8" tap-in at the par-5 second. Easy scoring chances were the name of the game today, as he gave himself 11 birdie looks from inside 12 feet. The Georgia Bulldog would convert on eight of those chances to offset a lone bogey. This round was all set up with great play off the tee, splitting 11 (of 14) fairways en route to 15 greens in regulation. If this lead holds it would go in the books as his second career first-round lead/co-lead with the other coming at the 2015 OHL Classic (finished T51).

Julian Suri’s electric finish saw him draw level with Richard McEvoy at the top of the round one leaderboard in the Porsche European Open after he carded 6-under-par 33-33=66 on the North Course at Green Eagle GC in Hamburg.

The American is performing largely on the Challenge Tour this year, but gets occasional starts on the main circuit and has proved himself adept at the level: T15 in the Australian PGA Championship, T2 in the Open de Portugal and T23 in the Lyoness Open being the standout results. He’s on track to maintain that progress after an opening lap which improved at pace. He started with a frustrating birdie-bogey exchange before turning in 1-under thanks to a par breaker at No. 7. There was another at 11 before he hit home in a rush of red. A hat-trick at 14, 15 and 16 preceded a birdie-4 on the 517-yard par-5 last to tie McEvoy, one swing clear of Stuart Manley, Charl Schwartzel, Alexander Levy and Chris Paisley on the live leaderboard.
Jul 27 - 12:57 PM

James Hahn was striping it tee-to-green en route to a 6-under-par 31-35=66 during round one of the RBC Canadian Open, grabbing an early share of the clubhouse lead on Thursday.

Hahn opened his day on the back nine and gave himself plenty of scoring chances early, and often. On the day he gained 1.553 strokes off-the-tee and 3.305 strokes approach-to-the-green. That translated to 11 birdie looks from inside 13 feet on the day. Hahn would convert on seven of those chances to erase a long bogey. With a T11 already on his Glen Abbey Golf Club resume (2015), gamers shouldn't expect any kind of major regression as the week progresses.
Jul 27 - 12:42 PM

Bob Estes electrified Glen Abbey Golf Club during round one of the RBC Canadian Open, firing a bogey-free, 5-under-par 33-34=67 to throw his name into contention early in the week.

Estes opened his day with early birdie looks from 10'4" and 5'5" but he missed on both. Perhaps they were too easy for him, as he proceeded to drain birdie bombs from 34'6" and 35'8" at the 5th and 6th holes, respectively. He would later add three shorter birdies but overall he was just 3-for-9 converting on scoring chances from inside 16 feet. Estes is no stranger to success around Glen Abbey, posting four top 15s at this week's course. More recently, he hasn't posted a top 25 on the PGA TOUR since the 2014 OHL Classic at Mayakoba (T10), way back in November of 2013. Estes is still playing on a Major Medical Extension, with 10 starts remaining to earn $479,415.
