Jason Day turned in a 1-under-par 36-34=70 for his opening round of the AT&T National.

He split eight (of 14) fairways and hit 13 greens at Congressional today, picking off four birdies against three bogeys along the way. His most impressive birdies disappeared from 43'10" at the second hole and 25'11" at 5. That he scored so well on a difficult track was also noteworthy. Day showed up today with his right wrist wrapped in tape due to a strained right hand suffered at Merion. "That rough was brutal," Day said before today's round. "There's a little bit of pain in my hand." The U.S. Open tags a couple of guys in a wrist every year it seems.

Kelly Kraft conjured up a 1-under-par 35-36=71 in today's second round of the RBC Canadian Open to reach the midpoint on 6-under 138, one shot back of co-leaders Dustin Johnson and Luke List.

Making his tournament debut, the 27-year-old was tied for the lead playing his final hole, the par-5 18th, but gave back a stroke with a failed scramble, falling into a three-way T3. Elsewhere, he 3-putted the par-4 eighth from 44'4" for bogey, and doubled the par-4 14th, taking three to get on the surface and 3-jacking again from 18'1", but erased all of the blemishes with five birdies. The first-time member though not a rookie converted each from inside of 10 feet on 12 greens in regulation, recording 5.365 SG: Tee-to-Green (4.487 SG: Approach-to-the-Green), but swallowed a -3.143 in SG: Putting. On top of the 3-putts, he also missed two scoring chances from inside of eight feet on Nos. 1 and 2.

A total of 78 pros and two amateurs made the cut on 2-over 146 with 19 finishing T62 on the number. McDowell, making his fifth appearance, completed 36 holes with six birdies against 11 bogeys and one double.

Canada's top-ranked amateur and sponsor invite Jared du Toit tossed up a 1-under-par 36-35=71 in today's second round of the RBC Canadian Open to post 6-under 138, one stroke back of 36-hole co-leaders Dustin Johnson and Luke List in a three-way T3. UPDATE: R3 will be twosomes off a SINGLE tee and du Toit will be in the third-to-last group.

With 80 players set to make the 36-hole cut, third-round tee times will most likely be threesomes off split tees. If that is the case, the 21-year-old will play out of the penultimate group on Saturday in his PGA TOUR debut. He began R2 on the back nine and exchanged birdie-3 at the 10th with a failed scramble at the 14th before back-to-back circles on 17 and 18 to turn 2-under. An errant tee shot at the 2nd led to a triple bogey-8 and du Toit squared the fifth (failed scramble) before bouncing back with three straight birdies on holes 6-8, all from greater than 17 feet and kicking off the run with a 66'5" bomb at the par-4 sixth. He saved par from a greenside bunker at the ninth, capping with an 11'3" par putt. du Toit found half (of 14) fairways and hit 10 greens in regulation, posting 1.500 putts per GIR and 3.770 in SG: Putting.

Overnight co-leader Luke List carved out a 1-under-par 33-38=71 in today's second round of the RBC Canadian Open to post 7-under 137, good for a share of the 36-hole clubhouse lead with Dustin Johnson.

Making his 58th career TOUR start, the 31-year-old co-led with Johnson after the pair matched 66s, his first career 18-hole lead/co-lead. He's playing in his second Canadian Open after T21 in 2013 here at Glen Abbey GC. The Vanderbilt alum went out in bogey-free 2-under with birdies on Nos. 1 and 2, each from inside of eight feet, and wrapped his first half with seven pars. He squared the 11th, 13th and 14th, all on failed scrambles, before settling down for a two-putt birdie on the par-5 16th and an 8'9" birdie roll at the par-4 18th. List split nine (of 14) fairways and mustered nine greens in regulation, posting 1.667 putts per GIR.

With one hole remaining in his second round, George McNeill withdrew from the RBC Canadian Open, 3-over-par on his lap and 6-over total.

Since debuting at the 2007 Canadian Open with a T3, the 40-year-old's next three starts show: CUT-WD-DQ. His last four starts this season now read: WD-CUT-WD-CUT. This is McNeill's 10th mid-tournament WD in 255 career starts and second of the season in 20 events, tossing in a pair of DQs as well. No reason for today's exit has been provided as yet, but his last WD at the QL Nat'l in June was due to a back injury. The Florida native and resident entered the week 184th in the FedExCup standings with one top 25 in 19 events.

Overnight co-leader Dustin Johnson rallied for a 1-under-par 32-39=71 in today's second round of the RBC Canadian Open to post 7-under 137, down one spot on the live leaderboard to solo second and good for the early 36-hole clubhouse lead. UPDATE: With play completed, Johnson is tied for the lead with overnight co-leader Luke List.

Johnson's opening 66 was good for his 12th 18-hole lead/co-lead in his 196th career start). He's only converted on those leads one time (2010, AT&T Pebble Beach) and most recently, led after 18 holes at this year's Memorial before finishing third. The FedExCup leader began R2 off No. 10 tee and landed eight (of 14) fairways, 10 greens in regulation and recorded 1.700 putts per GIR. He surrendered four strokes in his first four holes with bogeys at 11 and 13 and a double bogey-5 at the 12th, but rebounded to play his final 14 holes in 5-under, carding six birdies against one bogey the rest of the way, including three straight circles on holes 18, 1 and 2. The 32-year-old posted 1.958 SG: Off-the-Tee and 1.183 in SG: Putting to overshadow a -2.170 SG: Around-the-Green.

Dustin Johnson blitzed Glen Abbey Golf Club on his way to a 6-under-par 33-33=66 during the first round of the RBC Canadian Open, grabbing a share of the early lead with Luke List.

DJ continued his recent trend of accuracy off the tee, striping 10 (of 14) fairways, more than three over the field average on the day (6.47). His distance is always there, making the par 5s a breeze, playing them at 4-under today, including an eagle at the closing 18th. A 365-yard drive left him with just 148 yards into the green and he stuck it to 10'11" then splashed it home. His big blemish of the day came at the par-4 14th when he found water off the tee and swallowed a double bogey. In his last trip to Glen Abbey (2013) he finished T2 and enters on the heels of five straight top 10s, including two wins. There is no reason to expect him to falter as the week progresses, especially with the reachable par 5s at Glen Abbey catering to his game.

Ángel Cabrera withdrew from this week's RBC Canadian Open during round one action, he cited a shoulder injury as the culprit and was 8-over through eight holes at the time.

The Argentine squared three bogeys, a double, and a triple before calling it quits. It makes sense that his shoulder was bothering him, because something was clearly off. This goes in the books as his ninth mid-tournament WD in 262 career starts. With just one top 25 in 19 starts this season, Cabrera was not likely on the radar for many gamers. At 180th in the FedExCup standings, his TOUR status is in serious jeopardy. His exemption from winning the 2014 Greenbrier Classic expires at the end of the 2015-16 season.

Making his first start in a PGA TOUR event, Jared du Toit bombarded Glen Abbey Golf Club with a 5-under-par 33-34=67 to kick off his week at the RBC Canadian Open.

The 21-year old amateur circled his first career PGA TOUR birdie at the par-5 second hole, it was of the tap-in variety. He backed it up with a 36'1" birdie bomb at No. 3 and saved par from 21'7" at the par-3 fourth hole. He was off and running at that point, but his lone blemish came at the par-3 seventh where he swallowed a double bogey, finding trouble in the rough and needing three shots just to reach the green. The highlight of the Canadian's round came with two holes to play, holing out for eagle from a fairways bunker (155 yards out). The soon-to-be senior at Arizona State showed no sign of nerves today, but it will be interesting to see if that changes as the week progresses. Sometimes these low rounds are only due to a hot flat stick, but that wasn't the case today. The youngster gained 4.988 strokes tee-to-green and just 0.616 strokes putting.

Kelly Kraft torched the back nine of Glen Abbey Golf Club en route to a 5-under-par 36-31=67 during round one of the RBC Canadian Open, one off the early pacesetter Luke List.

Kraft kicked off his week on the easier side of Glen Abbey, allowing him to attack the par 5s early. His first blue number came in the form of a tap-in birdie at the par-5 13th. He continued to take advantage of the par 5s, tapping in for birdie at the 16th and splashing home a 17'5" putt on the 18th for eagle. He played the par 5s at 4-under on the day. After the turn, his approach play hit a brick wall and he traded eight pars with one bogey coming in. His closest approach shot on the back nine landed 23'3" from the hole, with eight of the nine falling outside of 32 feet. It's tough to score from that position and actually impressive that he only dropped one shot along the way. At 188th in the FedExCup standings, Kraft could really benefit from a big week in Oakville, Ontario.
Jul 21 - 2:30 PM

Jeff Overton has withdrawn from this week's RBC Canadian Open, he was 1-over through six holes at the time of the WD. No injury has been cited at the time.

The Indiana Hoosier is certainly no stranger to early exits as this goes in the books as his 10th career mid-tournament withdraw (292nd start). His most recent before today was a second-round WD at the Valero Texas Open, with an arm injury. The most common reason over the years has been the reoccurring wrist injury. He remains a risky proposition, week-to-week, for this very reason. We will make sure to update if or when news pops up about an injury this time around.
