Canadian Open 2022:Rory Mc Ilroy Lurks in The Dark as Wyndham Clark Takes the Lead in The First Round!

On Thursday, Wyndham Clark shot an impressive 7-under-par 63 to grab the lead in the RBC Canadian Open, his second tournament of the week after qualifying for the U.S. Open. At St. George’s Golf & Country Club, Clark shot a round of 63 or better for the third time in his PGA Tour career by making five birdies in his first nine holes. Matt Fitzpatrick, Doug Ghim, and Harold Varner III were all within a stroke of one other at 65.

There are three Canadians vying for the title of national open champion for the first time since 1954: defending champion Rory McIlroy (66), Tony Finau (66), Lee Hodges (66), and Mackenzie Hughes (66). The COVID-19 epidemic, which forced the cancellation of golf’s fourth-oldest event the previous two years, forced McIlroy to wait three years to defend his title. He shot a final-round 61 at Hamilton to secure a seven-shot victory.

As a result of the rain, “I felt like the course was there to go even lower,” McIlroy stated.

RBC Canadian Open - Final Round

I’m pleased with how the week is going so far, especially after a terrible Memorial Day weekend. On Sunday and Monday at the Memorial, Clark failed to break par in any of his final three rounds. It was only after an 11-hole streak of five birdies that he was able to qualify for the US Open at The Country Club outside of Boston.

Clark commented, “It’s wonderful to see some putts go in.” “Until recently, I hadn’t fired a low one. Despite a number of 3- and 4-under-par scores in recent tournaments, I felt as if I had missed a lot of opportunities. This time around, I made the most of every opportunity.” One of Clark’s best putts was an 8-foot par putt at No. 12 early in the round, which he made for a birdie.

Fitzpatrick’s round began and ended with a birdie at the par-3 eighth hole, which he sank from 35 feet for a score of 64.

Fitzpatrick was “very, extremely thrilled” with his performance today. “Had a few chances to chip it in, but I’m being a little too particular about it. Everything was going nicely in my game.”Because it worked so well the past time, PGA Champion Justin Thomas produced an impressive 69 in his opening round.

Sam Burns, who won Colonial two weeks ago, shot a 67 in the afternoon, while Scottie Scheffler, the Masters champion, shot a 69. For this year’s Canadian Open, five of the world’s top 10 players will be in attendance.

LIV Golf Invitational Series.

Their attention was drawn to England’s LIV Golf Invitational series, which had 17 PGA Tour members declared ineligible for the rest of the season, the first of which was taking place this week. Golf fanatic Rory McIlroy said he could still watch part of the streaming because he’s fascinated and since he has pals in the field competing. The 12 teams at LIV Golf have names like Niblicks and Cleeks, which he’s a little doubtful of.

Any team item purchases will not be made in the near future, according to McIlroy.
McIlroy, a member of the PGA Tour policy board as a player director, said again on Wednesday that he intends to remain with the organization and continue to support it. When it comes to event restrictions and guidelines for PGA Tour members, I think Jay has been quite open and honest at this point.

The Tour’s Decision-Making Process.

As McIlroy put it, “all he’s doing is basically following the book.”


The bulk of our members who are here this week and haven’t gone to play elsewhere definitely enjoy it.” According to my understanding, these players have broken rules and done things outside of the tournament regulations, thus I believe he has done the proper thing by reporting them.

McIlroy said he will probably watch some of the LIV Golf on YouTube when asked if he planned to do so. “I’m curious, and I’m a big admirer of the sport of golf. ” Several of my pals who live over there are performing,” he said. “Of course, I’ll go and see it and see what all the buzz is about,” he said.

Rory McIlroy lurks in the dark as Wyndham Clark takes the lead in the first round.”What are the other ones, like Iron Heads?” McIlroy asked when asked which of the 12 four-man teams he preferred. I’m stumped. “I’m not planning on purchasing any team gear in the near future,” he said. Thomas and McIlroy were not the only golfers to lend their support to Monahan and the Tour. According to him, he has “a lot of faith” in the Tour’s decision-making process.
