Charlie Hoffman shot a really nice -7 under par 65 today and leads the RBC Canadian Open by one shot at -17 under par.

Charley is playing some of the best golf he has ever played and I think he feels that he needs to keep it going.

I love his style. When he played the RBC Heritage on Hilton Head Island I told him that Thursday at Augusta was like watching a Master painting a portrait.

He loved hearing that. I was serious. When Charley is on ……boy look out nobody can catch him.

Kevin Chappell chose to come and play the Canadian Open because he lives in Seattle Washington during the summer.

He felt as though he could get more rest plying near Toronto and only have a short flight next week to get to Akron for the WGC Bridgestone Championship at the famous Firestone CC in Akron, Ohio.

It was a good move for Kevin because he is in second place all alone at -16 under par. Would have been better had he not hit his third shot in the water and took a bogey on # 18.

The big story today was the ” wild and crazy” Robert Garrigus.

Robert tied the course record today with a 62 with 2 eagles and 6 birdies, all the rest pars. Nice round for this NICE GUY. Most people don’t know but when the caddies had to pay for their lunches Robert would pick up everybody’s tab a week at a time.

He won’t talk about it but he is one of the kindness and most generous players we have out there every week.

I am pulling for him tomorrow.

Well, the guy who needs to really go low tomorrow is Sam Saunders. He is tied for 5th currently. Tomorrow is dedicated to his grandpa Arnold Palmer and this was Arnie’s first tour win.

How cool would it be if it is Sam’s first win too? Sam will have to go very low on Sunday because this course is really giving us some low scores this week.

Today with Garrigus firing a 62 and Gary Woodland’s 63 yesterday great golf to say the least!

Hope Sam can take it low Sunday! Make sure to watch………it’s good stuff!
