Tour Report: Canada’s best hopes with Hearn?


David Hearn is the low Canadian at the RBC Canadian Open at the moment — he’s even through his first three holes in the third round and 4 under for the tournament, seven shots off the lead.

After missing the cut in his first four RBC Canadian Opens (2002-05), Hearn, a native of Brantford, Ontario, who played collegiately at the University of Wyoming, has played on the weekend in five of his last six RBC Canadian Opens, with his tie for 20th in 2006 his top finish.

In addition to David Hearn, there were 22 Canadians in this week’s field. Five made the cut: Hearn, Albin Choi, Matt McQuillan, Graham DeLaet and Matt Hill.

The last Canadian to win this tournament was Pat Fletcher who carded a 280 in 1954 at Point Grey.
