Dustin Johnson wasted little time before grabbing the lead Saturday at the RBC Canadian Open.

The No. 1 player in the world birdied five of his first six holes and filled out the rest of his 5-under-30 front nine with four pars.

He opened his third round with a tee ball into the right rough, a wedge from 120, and a birdie make from inside 8 feet.

After getting out of position to the left on the par-5 second, Johnson laid up to 50 yards and played this skip wedge to set up birdie No. 2.

He erased his three-shot deficit in just three holes, when he flew this second shot from 110 yards directly over the flag at the third.

A par at four slowed his momentum for just a hole before he got back on track with this birdie at five.

And just when it looked like a less-than-stellar wedge would cost him at No. 6, he poured in this 20-footer to move to 15 under par.
