None of our featured players got off to a particularly strong start on Thursday. All of them likely need to shoot a three under par round or better to go into the weekend with a shot of winning the tournament. Did any of our selected players actually manage to pull off the round they needed, or will they have to wait another week to contend for a tournament? Read on to find out how our featured players fared on Day 2 of the Canadian Open.
Canadian Open Favorites
Dustin Johnson +2800
Dustin started the tournament off on the wrong foot with a one over par 71 on Thursday. However, he got back on the right track on Friday with a five under par 65. He currently sits at four under par, eight shots back of the lead. Another low round on Saturday will put him in position to make a deep run on Sunday. SugarHouse puts Dustin Johnson’s odds at +2800 going into the weekend.
Brooks Koepka +3300
Koepka also fired a solid round on Friday following a below-average round on Thursday. His four under par 66 puts at four under for the tournament, eight shots back of the lead. You might expect Koepka to have nearly the same odds as Dustin Johnson, and you’d be just about right. SugarHouse puts Koepka at +3300 to win the tournament.
Canadian Open Underdogs
Sergio Garcia – Cut
Sergio didn’t get off to the best start on Thursday, shooting a one over par 71. He was a little better on Friday, eventually carding an even par 70. Unfortunately, this resulted in Sergio getting cut. He hasn’t had the best season so far, and Garcia surely would have been hoping to turn things around before the U.S. Open next week. This was not to be the case at the Canadian Open.
Bubba bounced back from his one over par 71 with a three under par 67 on Friday, thus ensuring that he made the cut and advanced to the weekend. SugarHouse isn’t laying odds on him to win the tournament right now. However, Bubba could very well go low on Saturday and find himself back in the conversation.
