Martin Flores took solid advantage of the softer greens at The Canadian Open, and fired a beautiful 6 under par 66. Flores started on the back nine and proceeded to get 4 birdies and 5 pars.

Finishing on the tougher front nine he ended up with 8 pars and a spectacular eagle 3 on #2. Hitting a 331 yard drive, 186 yard second shot on the green, then dropping a 19 foot birdie putt!

He sits at 12 under par after the first 2 rounds. Gonna be fun to see if he can keep up this pace!

We have a tie for second place with Matt Every at 11 under with a -4 under par round today. The big story is Gary Woodland.

Gary actually had a lone bogey today but put 10 birdies on the board. He had 6 in a row and missed tying the course record by one shot.

Gary will be fun to watch on moving day. He has a lovely wife and a brand new premature baby so he has a lot to fight for. He will definitely be a force to be reckoned with tomorrow and Sunday.

The forecast is for a beautiful weekend so there will be huge crowds coming to see if this is the last Canadian Open played at Glen Abbey.

I understand the big thing being debated is whether they want their national open played on the same course every year or move it from year to year like we do here in the United States.

It’s still going to bother me a lot if this course is bulldozed and buildings are built where Nicklaus, Norman, Tiger, etc. made so much history.

I did hear today that there is a chance of building a new course for the Canadian Open very close to where Glen Abbey is.

I’m an old-fashioned sentimental guy and will hate it if they rip up this beautiful Jack Nicklaus designed track. I’m sure we will hear more tomorrow. Enjoy moving day!
