Canadian Open Rounds 1 & 2 Highlights + Round 3 Odds

Canadian Open Rounds 1 & 2 Highlights + Round 3 Odds

Despite the golfing world still reeling from the huge news that the LIV and PGA Tours have merged, the show must go on and we have reached the halfway stage of the Canadian Open. Here the Canadian Open Rounds 1 & 2 Highlights

China’s Carl Yuan has played two superb rounds and finds himself one stroke clear of a quartet of players which includes home favorite Corey Connors, Aaron Rai, C.T Pan and Tyrell Hatton. 

Yuan leads by one – McIlroy finds himself three strokes back. 

Coming into this week’s Canadian Open, few would have predicted that world number 164 Carl Yuan would be leading the way. The Chinese golfer has been a birdie machine through the first two rounds and will be looking to cement his position at the top of the leaderboard today. 

A graduate from the Korn Ferry Tour, Yuan’s rookie year has been uneventful. Yet to finish in the top twenty of any event this season, his best showing came in the Sony Open where he finished 21st. Having never felt pressure like this before and with a host of top names circling, it will be fascinating to see how he manages the occasion of leading a PGA tournament for the first time. 

Corey Connors has already been a winner on the PGA Tour this season and has been playing some wonderfully consistent golf. The home crowd favorite, Connors has just dropped one shot through his first two rounds and will be hoping to become the first Canadian winner of this tournament since 1954. 

Tyrell Hatton had one of the best rounds of the day yesterday, recording a superb eight under 64. The Englishman’s round included nine birdies and just one bogey. Another who has been playing consistently, look for him to make another significant move today. 

Due to the chaos of the LIV / PGA merger all eyes have been on Rory McIlroy. McIlroy has done a brilliant job of putting all the noise behind him and finds himself just three strokes off the lead. 

McIlroy has never shied away from the love he has of this event, and he remains strongly placed to win this tournament for a third successive year. 

Canadian Open Round 3 Betting Preview

Ahead of today’s third round, 29 players will start within five strokes of Carl Yuan’s lead.

The current favorite for victory is Tyrell Hatton. Hatton has posted two top ten finishes in his last four starts and seems to have rediscovered the consistency which took him as high as fifth in the world. 

A winner of the Arnold Palmer back in 2020, it has been three years since Hatton has tasted PGA success and he will be desperate to amend that record this weekend. 

Local hero Corey Connors comes next in the betting and is aiming to become the first Canadian to win his home open in almost 60 years. 

A winner of the Texas Open earlier this year, Connors knows what it takes to win on the big stage, and he will hope to feed off the energy of the home crowd to aid his charge up the leaderboard today.

Rounding out the top three in the betting is Rory McIlroy. McIlroy has enjoyed tremendous success at this tournament having won the event in the last two years.

McIlroy would have been delighted with his second round which saw him go bogey free and pick up five strokes. Just three behind Yuan, look for the Northern Irishman to carry on that positive momentum today. 

Justin Rose could represent some terrific value ahead of today’s third round. The Englishman is enjoying a comeback year after spending the last few seasons in the golfing wilderness. 

A winner of the AT&T at Pebble Beach earlier this season, Rose will have his eyes on another PGA title and with it a return to inside the world’s top twenty.
