Canadian Open rained out again

Filed under: by: golf clubs showcase

The RBC Canadian Open will head into a fifth day with no players having completed their third rounds after storms in Ontario again forced an early end to play.

Having taken three days to complete the first two rounds, 36 holes had been scheduled today but leader Jason Dufner had played only six holes of his third round when proceedings were again halted.

Play was called off the day shortly before 5pm local time, with the players set to resume their third rounds at 7.30am tomorrow before starting the final round at approximately 9.05am.

Dufner had shot to the top of the leaderboard with a nine-under-par round of 63 yesterday to move to 13 under and he added a birdie at the second today to stay just ahead of the pack.

Leading the chase was rising star Anthony Kim, who went out in 31 to trail by one at 13 under alongside Jerry Kelly, who was one under through six.

South Africa's Retief Goosen was the leading name in a group of five players two behind while DA Points made the best start to today to climb to 11 under.

The American birdied eight of his first 14 holes, although his card was marred slightly by a double bogey at the 11th - his second.

Colombia's Camilo Villegas and Scot Martin Laird saw their challenge fall away, Villegas going through seven holes in two over to drop to eight under while Laird was one worse off.

England's Luke Donald, who finished tied fifth at the Open last weekend, continued his steady progress with three birdies in eight holes to join Laird at seven under.
