Thanks to a strong run that culminated in a victory at last week's Japan Golf Tour Championship, Satoshi Kodaira has earned a berth in The Open Championship.

At the conclusion of today's Mizuno Open, the top two from the JGTO money list not already eligible for the field at Muirfield gained entry into the major. Hideki Matsuyama ranks first and has banked more than double that of Kodaira, but the 21-year-old phenom had already qualified. So, South Korea's Hyung-Sung Kim, who sits third in earnings, gets the exemption. Both Kodaira and Kim will be making their debuts in a major championship.

Past champion Vijay Singh strung together a 4-under-par 34-34=68 during round two of the RBC Canadian Open, keeping his name near the top of the leaderboard on 10-under 134.

Singh fired out of the gate on Thursday with a stellar ball-striking display. Today, he lost strokes off-the-tee and approaching-the-green, but salvaged his round with some short-game magic. Most notable was a 22-foot hole-out birdie at the par-4 fifth hole. He also sank a long-distance birdie from 32'5" at the par-4 first hole. Singh has been T70 or worse after two rounds in 11 of his last 12 PGA TOUR starts but he did find himself in solo fourth at the midpoint of THE PLAYERS this year, finishing T16 by week's end. The 2004 champ at Glen Abbey Golf Club is certainly enjoying his time at a familiar and comfortable venue.

After a delay of just short of four hours Ashley Chesters returned to the North Course at Green Eagle GC in Hamburg to complete a second round of 5-under-par 36-31=67 to hit halfway in the Porsche European Open on 9-under 135, good for a one shot clubhouse lead.

The Englishman is now bogey-free through 36 holes at a very wet and long track. On Friday he started on the back nine and made his first move with back-to-back red numbers at 12 and 13, then he added another brace at 1 and 2 after the turn. A birdie-2 at the 8th complete his work. Curiously, on a course with five par-5s, Chester has only one birdie on them through two rounds. The weather problems make it unlikely that the second round will be completed by the end of Friday and with scoring conditions good it is possible that he will be passed. But in the clubhouse, with half the field having completed two laps, he leads by one from Siddikur Rahman. "Other than the driver I played well," he said. "Putter was especially good today."

Richie Ramsay continued his impressive recent form with a 4-under-par 37-31=68 in round two of the Porsche European Open in Germany, good enough for the clubhouse lead of 6-under 138 before heavy rain caused suspension of play at 12:59 local time due to a waterlogged course.

Ramsay's round has lifted him 29 spots to T5 on the live leaderboard, two shots behind on-course leaders Jordan Smith (16 holes played) and Ashley Chesters (13). The Scot, who was runner-up in the Irish Open earlier this month and then prominent at Royal Birkdale before settling for T22, posted five birdies against a single bogey at Green Eagle GC in Hamburg today. His one blemish came at his first hole of the morning, the 10th, but he shook off the bad weather after that and collected red numbers at 11, 15, 5, 7 and 8 to surge up the leaderboard. Right now, Ramsay has a one-shot lead in the clubhouse over Michael Jonzon, Jose-Filipe Lima, Chris Paisley and Thorbjorn Olesen (all finished at 5-under).

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).
Jul 27 - 8:55 PM

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.
Jul 27 - 2:44 PM

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.
Jul 27 - 2:32 PM

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.
Jul 27 - 1:39 PM

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).
