Michael Thompson topped Canadian Open leaderboard closely followed by Chad Campbell at the Shaughnessy Golf & Country Club. Both are not in a stable position, however, with different players being in position to claim the title. The 2011 Canadian Open leaderboard offers many emotions to spectators with Lee Janzen and Paul Goydos enjoying only one stroke off the lead. Seven other golfers are at two under, occupying fifth place in the tournament.
All eyes are on Thompson who managed to win one PGA tournament in 2011, finishing twice in the top ten rankings. The American accumulated earnings worth half a million in seventeen tournaments, which is considered not that good of performance and shadows his candidacy to win the golf tournament.
The other Canadian Open leaderboard current leader, Chad Campbell, won eight-hundred thousand dollars in twenty-two tournaments which is positioning him close to Thompson in terms of earnings.
Paul Goydos attracted most attention from spectators and pundits on Saturday for many of them expect the 47-year-old to win a tournament, following his top ten positioning in four out of nineteen tournaments. He gets over a million dollars from all PGA golf tournaments without having a first place.
The tough RBC Canadian Open course is the main reason for a very narrow Open leaderboard, many players revealed.
