Gonzalo Fernández-Castaño spun a 6-under-par 35-31=66 in his opening round of the Arnold Palmer Invitational to assume outright possession of the clubhouse lead.

This is the kind of start that the Spaniard has needed all season. With seven events in the books, the first-time PGA TOUR member arrived at Bay Hill tied for 125th in FedExCup points. It's hardly the kind of foray that you'd expect from a healthy talent inside the top 50 of the Official World Golf Ranking (42nd). He split 10 (of 14) fairways and hit 15 greens in regulation today. That proficiency paved the way for eight birdies, the longest of the conventional measuring 13'8" at the third hole. He also circled a zero-putt birdie from seven yards at 1 to set the tone for the round. While Fernández-Castaño squared two bogeys, including a three-putt number from 33'5" at 5 (where he whiffed on a two-footer for par), he compensated with a par save from off the green and four yards away at 10. Today's aggregate matches his career low on the PGA TOUR (2009 OHL Classic at Mayakoba, second round). This week's API is his 41st career start.

Martin Laird turned in a 4-under-par 34-34=68 after the third round of the RBC Canadian Open to reach the three-quarter pole on 6-under 210, up 16 places on the live leaderboard to T5, three back of clubhouse leader Brandt Snedeker.

The 33-year-old was the 18-hole leader two starts ago at the opposite-field Barracuda (Modified Stableford) and eventually finished a season-best T7. He arrived this week at No. 126 in the FedExCup standings with just two top 10s in 19 events and only five events remaining until the start of the Playoffs. The Scot began the third frame on 2-under (T21) after opening his fifth Canadian Open in 73-69. He striped eight (of 14) fairways and hit 14 greens in regulation, currently leading the field in the latter at 81.48 percent (44/54). Laird outpaced one bogey (failed scramble) with five birdies, each from inside of 12 feet.

Steve Wheatcroft styled a career-tying-low 8-under-par 32-32=64 in today's third round of the RBC Canadian Open, setting the 36-hole clubhouse mark at 7-under 209 and posting the low round of the week.

The 38-year-old was playing his 368th career round on TOUR and this matches the 64 he shot in 2012 at the Greenbrier, also in the third round. He began the day on 1-over (T47), one inside the cut line after opening his fifth RBC appearance in 68-77. The Indiana University alum went 13 strokes lower than yesterday, overshadowing bogeys on Nos. 2 and 15 with eight birdies and a walk-off eagle-3 from 42'10". His card featured three sets of back-to-back birdies and he capped with a birdie-birdie-eagle finish. The Pennsylvania native peppered 14 greens in regulation, circling seven par breakers the conventional way and adding birdie-2s at the eighth from 25'8" away in the fringe and a pitch-in 40'6" from the target at the 12th. He gained 5.815 SG: Tee-to-Green and 1.962 SG: Putting.

Derek Fathauer twirled a bogey-free 7-under-par 32-33=65 in today's third round of the RBC Canadian Open to post the second best round of the week (Steve Wheatcroft, 64/R3) and reach 5-under 211.

The 30-year-old began the day on T62 after making the cut on the number (74-72). Thru 36 holes he carded six birdies against six bogeys and one double. The University of Louisville alum bested his two-day output in par breakers with seven birdies in R3, posting 1.625 putts per GIR on 16 greens. His split featured a 24-footer at the par-4 11th and four conversions from between 12 and 21 feet, signing his card with a 4.097 SG: Putting. This was Fathauer's 82nd round of the season and he's shot 65 two other times. He's currently up 53 places to T9 on the leaderboard.
Jul 23 - 2:56 PM

Michael Thompson circled 10 birdies en route to a 6-under-par 30-36=66 on Day 3 of the RBC Canadian Open, reaching the three-quarter mark on 4-under 212, up 44 places on the live leaderboard to T18.

Thompson was paired with Derek Fathauer in R3 and were the third group off after the duo were among 19 players who made the cut on the number. For his part, Fathauer painted a bogey-free 65 (seven birdies), the low round of the week, while the 31-year-old Thompson took some of the luster off his lap with a bogey and double bogey-6. The Sea Island, Georgia, resident entered the week off a season-best T4 at the Barbasol, where he recovered from an opening 1-over 72 with rounds of 64-68-65. It was his first top 10 of the season in 19 starts.

Si Woo Kim smoothed a bogey-free 5-under-par 33-34=67 in today's third round of the RBC Canadian Open, carding just the third bogey-free round of the week thus far and posting 3-under 213.

The 21-year-old fired a bogey-free 6-under 65 last week at the Barbasol on Moving Day to vault from T42 to T11, eventually losing in a playoff after a closing 63. This week he started a little further back, T62, one of 19 players to make the cut on the number. Once again, the Web.com Tour grad posted a blemish-free round on Moving Day, circling five birdies on 14 greens in regulation after hitting just two GIR during yesterday's one-birdie 77. He's up 34 places to T28 with play still in progress.

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.

RBC Ambassador Graeme McDowell back-pedaled to a 4-over-par 37-39=76 in the second round of the RBC Canadian Open and at 7-over 75-76=151, missed the cut by five strokes.

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.
Jul 22 - 6:09 PM

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.
Jul 22 - 4:30 PM

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.
