Carl Schwartzel from South Africa, Geoff Ogilvy from Australia and David Hearn from Canada are also in the top ten at the start of round 3 today with scores of -2. Mike Weir, who owns a prestigious green jacket from the Masters tournament, the only Canadian golfer to have won this major event, bowed out yesterday with an elbow injury, after posting a plus 8 in round 2.

The host for the event, the Shaughnessy Golf and Country Club in Vancouver is a traditional old-style golf course and some of the professional golfers are finding it to be a very difficult course. The number one ranked golfer in the world, Luke Donald from England, posted a +3 yesterday and the champion from last year at the Canadian Open, Carl Pettersson ended round 2 with a +4.
