Chad Campbell leads, David Hearn (the top Canadian is tied for third)
July 24, 2015 – Oakville, ON
Chad Campbell is a fan of Glen Abbey Golf Club; his play today could help explain the Texas native’s affinity for the home of the 2015 RBC Canadian Open. Campbell’s bogey-free round included nine birdies to take the lead at the 106th playing of Canada’s National Open Championship.
“I really enjoy this course; it’s playing great and in great condition, the greens are perfect and the fairways are super fast,” said Campbell, when asked about returning to Glen Abbey. “I think this is my third or fourth time to play on this course. I’ve always enjoyed it. I just feel comfortable on it.”
The four-time PGA TOUR winner finished T16 at the 2013 RBC Canadian Open at this same course. At 130, his two-round score is the second lowest in Glen Abbey’s storied past. His 9-under 63 performance was one stroke shy of tying the course record.
“It would have been nice to make that one. But after driving the left rough, I was pretty happy just to have it up on the green,” said Campbell of his attempt to equal history.
