Friday, June 9, 2023 – Corey Conners shot a 3-under 69 and sits in a four-way tied for second, one back of Carl Yuan after two rounds at the RBC Canadian Open. Conners holds the highest 36-hole position by a Canadian since Mike Weir in 2004.

Friday’s second round started with rainy and cold conditions, but the weather turned for the better and the leaderboard is taking shape heading into the weekend. The cut line is set a 1-under with 75 players making the cut.

After starting the day at even-par, Tyrrell Hatton shot the composite-course record, firing an 8-under 64. Hatton recorded nine birdies in his round to join Conners, Aaron Rai and C.T. Pan in a tie for second at 8-under. The composite course is made up of 18 holes from the 27 available at Oakdale Golf and Country Club.

This week, Mike Weir made his 30th start at the RBC Canadian Open. Weir now sits tied with Gordon Brydson in second, two behind George Cumming for the most starts in tournament history. Weir shot a 2-under, 70 on Friday to make the cut for the 11th time in his career. Weir is one of eight Canadians to make the cut. The highest number of Canadians to play the weekend since 2002.
