GOLF ROUNDUP Diaz nearly flawless at Canadian Open

first_imgKelli Kuehne and Kyeong Bae opened with 66s, 2005 winner Meena Lee topped a group at 67, and Paula Creamer and Juli Inkster shot 68s. Top-ranked Lorena Ochoa opened with a 70 in her first round since winning the Women’s British Open at St. Andrews. Wyndham Championship Will MacKenzie would be a natural for the X Games. Now he’s out to prove there’s room for a kayaking, snowboarding surfer in the sometimes stuffy world of golf. MacKenzie shot an 8-under 64 to take a one-shot lead over Lucas Glover, Steve Marino, Brian Davis and Jeff Overton after the first round at Greensboro, N.C. MacKenzie, who spent a more than a decade away from the sport, nearly made a hole-in-one and had nine birdies to offset one bogey. Scandinavian Masters Scott Strange, who found out he was playing 45 minutes before tee time, shot a 6-under 64 to take the lead after the first round at Stockholm, Sweden. Strange, the first reserve, replaced David Drysdale, who pulled out with a neck injury. Swedish amateur Fredrik Qvicker and Sam Walker were one shot behind. Corey Pavin, Jeff Sluman and two-time winner Jesper Parnevik shot 70. Defending champion Marc Warren and John Daly shot 72. The Tradition Mike Reid and Mark McNulty shot 6-under-66s to share the first-round lead at the Champion Tour’s fourth major of the year. David Edwards was a stroke back and Tom Watson, Ben Crenshaw and Bruce Summerhays shot 68s at the Crosswater Golf Club in the central Oregon town of Sunriver. Reid’s 66 was his lowest score since March. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set!

Diaz made a long birdie putt on the par-4 first hole – her 10th hole of the day on the Royal Mayfair course in Edmonton, Alberta. “It was just really fun for me to make the 33-footer,” Diaz said. “It’s been what I’ve struggled with, so it was nice to see that go in. It puts me in a good frame of mind going into (the second round today).” last_img read more
