Canadians making runs in US Open


FARMINGDALE, N.Y. – The Canadians are putting on a show at the U.S. Open.
First, Mike Weir shoots 64 in the first round, one stroke off the record for low score in men’s major championships. Then Nick Taylor shoots 65 in the second round, equaling the low score for an amateur at the U.S. Open. Taylor ’s score is the lowest by an amateur in 38 years at the U.S. Open. Taylor is from Abbotsford , British Columbia. He earned his way to the championship winning the sectional qualifier at Roslyn, Wash.
Canadians at Bethpage Black will have an easy time following them both in the third round. Weir is scheduled off in the second-to-last pairing on the first tee, Taylor just two groups before him. Canadian citizen Stephen Ames also made the cut.
