RBC Canadian Open, Round 1: Vance Veazey Has Clubhouse Lead At 6-Under

Vance Veazey sits atop the leader board at the RBC Canadian Open at St. George's Golf & Country Club in Toronto after shooting a 6-under 64 in Thursday's first round. Veazey's score is only the second time that the 45-year-old American has shot a 64 in his PGA Tour career, the first coming in Chicago in 2003. He has four Nationwide Tour titles to his name and one career top ten PGA Tour event finish. Veazey had a single bogey in the round on the third hole but made up for it with seven birdies - including a stretch of five bogeys in seven holes between holes six and 12.

There is a seven-way tie for second at 5-under 65 amongst those currently in the clubhouse and three more tied at 5-under who are still on the course.

South Africans Retief Goosen and Trevor Immelman shot identical 3-under 67's on the day while American John Daly shot a 1-under 69.
