Graham DeLaet of Weyburn, SK, stoked the fires of Canadian hopes yesterday by torching The Royal Montreal Golf Club in second round action at the RBC Canadian Open

DeLaet tied the course record when he posted a 7-under 63 to get into T3 position at 8-under heading into the weekend.

He leads a crop of six Canadians that includes David Hearn at 3-under (T28) and Adam Hadwin at 1-under (T50).

Also making the cut is a trio of Canucks on even par at T63. They are Manotick’s Brad Fritsch, Mike Weir and Team Canada amateur Taylor Pendrith.

Fritsch thrilled the gallery when he sank the putt of the day. He converted a double breaking 29-footer for birdie on 18 to make the cut on the number.

DeLaet wasn’t the only player to add his name to the course’s history book.

American Jim Furyk, a two-time Canadian Open champion, also matched the magic number and shares the 36-hole lead at 10-under with fellow American Tim Petrovic.

One of 11 RBC golf ambassadors in the field, Furyk is looking to become the second consecutive one to win the event following fellow RBC rep Brandt Snedeker in 2013.
