Chad Campbell bogeyed his final hole to take some gloss off a second-round 5-under-par 34-33=67 at the RBC Canadian Open but is up 48 spots on the live leaderboard to T7 with a two-day total of 4-under 140. UPDATE: With play completed, Campbell's 67 was tied for the low round of the day with Kevin Kisner.
This is the 42-year-old's eighth appearance north-of-the-border. He led by two after 36 holes here last year on 14-under (67-63), but closed in 3-over 75-72 for T11, which is his best showing to date. The UNLV alum arrived this week 76th in the FedExCup standings and off five consecutive weekends of action, including a T10 at the DEAN & DELUCA, his third top 10 of the season (23 starts). He opened with a birdie-less, 1-over 73 (17 pars, one bogey), posting an ugly -2.540 in SG: Putting and 2.167 putts per GIR. Beginning off the 10th tee for R2, the Texan rebounded with seven birdies against two bogeys and 3.903 SGP and 1.300 putts per GIR on 10 greens. On his inward half, he banged in two birdies from greater than 25 feet, including a 26-footer for birdie-2 at the fourth, and a 40'2" roll for birdie at the par-4 fifth.
