This week: RBC Canadian Open, Thursday through Sunday, Shaughnessy Golf Club, Vancouver, B.C.
Moore’s first-round score: 3-over-par 73.
Gonzales’ first-round score: 4-over 74.
Putnam’s first-round score: 5-over 75.
Position: Moore is tied for 66th, Gonzales is tied for 90th and Putnam is tied for 114th – all trailing leader Kris Blanks (67).
Recap: Just like it was the last time the Canadian Open was at Shaughnessy, the scoring was rough – just 21 golfers posted under-par rounds. Moore started his second nine with three consecutive bogeys, and the high, thick grass played penal at No. 1 (laid up out of right rough) and No. 2 (approach shot came up short). … Gonzales has a late-round rally going with birdies at the 13th, 15th and 16th holes, but after his drive on the finishing dogleg-left hole landed in the left rough, it took him two more shots to get the ball back on the fairway, leading to a double bogey. … Putnam couldn’t get out of the deep rough on the first (right side) and 13th holes (left side), leading to double bogeys.
Tee times Friday: Gonzales at 8:40 a.m. PDT off the 10th tee; Putnam at 8:50 a.m. PDT off the 10th tee; and Moore at 12:40 p.m. PDT off the first tee.
