Bradley Leads Canadian Open

Keegan Bradley is the early leader after opening the R-B-C Canadian Open with a 7-under 63.

Four Canadians were within three shots of the lead as Nick Taylor led the way for the home country, shooting a 6-under 64 at Hamilton Golf & Country Club.

Taylor made four birdies on a row to open his back nine, and was tied for second with Korean Sungjae Im, Shane Lowry of Ireland and Erik van Rooyen of South Africa.

Other Canadians that played well on Thursday, included Adam Hadwin carded a 5-under 66, while David Hearn and Drew Nesbitt each had a 67.

No Canadian has won the annual tournament since Pat Fletcher in 1954.
