Nick Taylor of Abbotsford, B.C., was the low Canadian.
Adam Hadwin, the top-ranked Canadian on the PGA Tour, matched Bubba Watson with a 70. "There was a lot of prayers for my family, just to give me peace and calm, just to come out and not worry about it, not worry about where I am". "It's so different now". "I left a few out there today, but overall, I feel really positive about the way I played, and looking forward to tomorrow".
Instead Garrigus's brilliant round added up to no more than a one-shot clubhouse lead over Adam Schenk, who birdied his closing three holes, while fellow American Chris Stroud lurked one shot further back by finishing with four straight birdies.
Soft conditions likely will favour the big bombers, something that might be an advantage to Conners who ranks 38th in average driving distance on the PGA Tour this season at 303.1 yards. The governing body's boss, Laurence Applebaum, has also stated that news on 2020 and '21 hosts can be expected soon.
Garrigus has a history of low-scoring at Glen Abbey. "And the golf course is absolutely pure", Garrigus said.
He made a par on 17 before wrapping up his round with another birdie at the last to get to six-under. He also eagled the par-5 second hole. As for 2017 victor Jhonattan Vegas, he managed only a par on 18 on Sunday in regulation past year but won his second-straight Open in a playoff over Charley Hoffman with a miraculous birdie on 18 from a fairway bunker.

"That's a tricky hole for me", the 39-year-old said.
This is his 16th year playing his national open, and he says it's still not entirely nerve-free.
"I think it's a much more hard shot now", Conners said.
"It's great. I love this place", Garrigus said. "But I think the date move is good, and I think the field will get stronger for sure".
In the bottom tier, I'm choosing Harold Varner III pretty much based on his recent form.
"Even though I shot a million on Sunday between the two days, and after 36 last week in Kentucky, I just felt like there was something coming", said the Nampa, Idaho product.
"I've always played well in Canada". "I know there's not a fifth major, but it's kind of our fifth major for myself and for most of the Canadians". I'm choosing Dustin Johnson.
