Furyk Dominates, Shoots 63

The best statistic to summarize Jim Furyk's day would be the fact that he did not miss a single putt within fifteen feet. Jim Furyk of West Chester, Pennsylvania dominated Hamilton Golf and Country Club as he putted his way to a 63, and the lead. Only two weeks removed since his third place at the WGC Bridgestone, Furyk has put himself in postition to win again. Furyk will be playing for America in the Ryder Cup in two weeks and surely will bring some momentum with him. Brandt Jobe trails Furyk by a single stroke shooting 64 and staying barely ahead of a whole slew of players at 5 and 4 under. Notable players in contention include Justin Rose who had a lead for some time at the Deutsche Bank Championship, Aaron Obberholser who had a win already this year, and young Sean O'Hair who won the John Deere Classic last year. Mark Calcavecchia, last year's champion, shot a four under 66 to stay in contention. The Hamilton course has been hurt by the players as the last time the Canadian Open was played there, the winning 72 hole score was 8 under, the first day's leader shooting seven under.
