A marine layer pushed back the start of the Farmers Insurance Open third round by three hours, with the first groups beginning their rounds at 10:20 a.m. PT. UPDATE: Play is scheduled to resume at 12:20 p.m.

There were six 30-minute delays this morning at Torrey Pines. Chez Reavie went off the first tee but didn't finish the hole before play was suspended yet again. Threesomes off split tees are scheduled, and the first group off the 10th tee completed one hole. The leaders are now set to begin their rounds on the first tee at 2:40 p.m. PT. Due to the series of delays, the third round will not conclude today, and with 87 golfers surviving the cut, officials will have to decide at some point whether to allow all 87 play 72 holes (thus forgoing the 54-hole/MDF since it's likely the golfers will not re-pair after the third round) or reduce the cut right now to the number nearest 60 so that the tournament still finishes on Sunday.

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.

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.

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.

Scott Piercy has withdrawn from the RBC Canadian Open just before his opening tee time, giving Tom Hoge a crack at Glen Abbey Golf Club, in his place.

Piercy withdrew from The 146th Open, but did not cite any injury or illness. There was the chance he just wanted to spend some time with the family instead of traveling overseas. This pre-tournament WD just one week later probably confirms there is an injury or illness, although it hasn't been cited at the time. Piercy is a past champion at this event (2012) but his victory came at a different host course (Hamilton G&CC). Piercy finished T7 at the DEAN & DELUCA Invitational in late May but has since gone MC-MC-MC-85.

In-form Richard McEvoy crafted a bogey-free 6-under-par 34-32=66 in his opening round at the Porsche European Open in Germany, his morning lap at Green Eagle GC in Hamburg securing a one-shot clubhouse lead over Alexander Levy, Charl Schwartzel and Stuart Manley.

The Englishman's place at the top seems a surprise on first glance given that we've not seen him in action on the European Tour since T59 at last month's BMW International Open, also in Germany. However, prior to that he was T5 at the Lyoness Open in neighboring Austria on a course with similar traits to this one and at the start of July he shot a final-round 66 to win the Scottish Challenge on the Challenge Tour. McEvoy started his round from 10th tee today and the birdies came at regular intervals (11, 13, 15 and 18). He picked up another shot at 2 and then made a go-ahead birdie-3 at 7 to claim the outright lead on his own before maintaining it with a pair of closing pars.

RBC Ambassador and World No. 12 Matt Kuchar readies for his 11th RBC Canadian Open and checks in at 17th in the FedExCup standings.

The 39-year-old arrives off solo 2nd at The Open, his career best in majors and ninth top 10 in 47 major appearances. It was also his fifth consecutive top 16 on TOUR. The Georgia Tech alum is second fiddle this week to World No. 1 Dustin Johnson, both in OWGR and pre-tourney odds, a lofty 10/1 outright. He's 7-for-10 North of the Border with six top 25s, five top 10s (four straight), and three top 5s, including runner-up in 2013. The Florida native ranks T14 on TOUR in par-3 scoring (3.00), T20 in par-4 scoring (4.00) and T120 in par-5 scoring (4.71).

Patrick Reed stays the other side of the pond this week and makes his way to Germany for the 2017 Porsche European Open at Green Eagle GC in Hamburg.

The American will form part of the tournament's star three-ball Thursday morning, teeing off at 0800 local alongside defending champion Alexander Levy of France and former Masters winner Charl Schwartzel. Reed arrived in Europe earlier this month after connecting four top 20s in the U.S. but it's been a disappointing time so far following missed cuts at both the Scottish Open (74-70) and Open Championship (74-76). This will be his first start in Germany but any lack of course form is negated by the tournament switching to a venue that hasn't been used on the European Tour. Reed should also enjoy the switch back to parkland golf after struggling on the links so gamers are entitled to think he'll show his class again.
