Johnson shares Canadian Open lead after 65

Keegan Bradley Canadian Open

He was nine shots better Sunday, going 63-73-64 over his last three rounds.

World No.1 Dustin Johnson was blown away when told his Canadian Open victory meant he surpassed Tiger Woods as the US PGA Tour's most prolific victor of the past 10 years.

Tied for the third-round lead with Kevin Tway, Byeong Hun An and Whee Kim, Johnson shot a 6-under 66 for a three-stroke victory over Kim and An.

Johnson's experience provided the early edge as he wasted no time breaking free with birdies at one and two, while the three co-leaders, who were all chasing their first PGA Tour titles, picked up early bogeys.

And while a Canadian still hasn't won this tournament since 1954, Johnson is about as close as you can get.

It fell into place at Glen Abbey, the Jack Nicklaus-designed course slated for redevelopment.

ClubLink, the owner of the property, is looking to put a housing and commercial real estate development on the land and the tournament may not be back here again.

If he achieves that goal, he would be back at the RBC Canadian Open at Hamilton G&CC next summer. "So that definitely boosted my confidence", he said.

"Yeah, I mean it's never going to be back here", Johnson stated (confirmed!) "So it was big for me to get the win here".

"It means a lot", Johnson said of his win. I thought I had a lot of support.

Saturday's third round, the proverbial "Moving Day" as it were, provided some significant separation at the top of the leaderboard: There was a four-way tie for first place at 17-under par featuring Kim, Tway, Johnson, and An. "Signing with RBC this year, and coming up here to the RBC Canadian Open and winning, especially on a golf course where I've had success, it means a lot", Johnson said.

Johnson said watching 14-time major victor Woods dominate the sport inspired him to create his own legacy.

The back nine, however, did not begin as brightly.

Bradley charged up the leaderboard when he holed out on the par-4 9th hole from 151 yards out for an eagle. He added another on the par-four eighth to make the turn at three under for the round. "Somebody is going to shoot low and I just hope it's me". Play resumed at 5:12 p.m.

Calgary-raised Ryan Yip scored an invite to compete this past week in the PGA Tour's RBC Canadian Open and, as is becoming tradition for the golfers from across the Great White North, donned the sweater of his home hockey team Sunday on the so-called "Rink Hole" before scanning the crowd for somebody who might share the same rooting interest. It's tougher when there is pressure. "Just play your game", Kim said. "I've got a great family, with a lot of support from them and then obviously a great team to help me to get to where I'm at".

"I've got two weeks left. next week I can hopefully keep building on it".

"Just to kind of get sniffing around the lead here, I know Dustin (Johnson) is a little bit ahead, but if he was to have faltered, and you were to have posted 18 or 19, which wasn't that out of the question, all of a sudden it looks like a pretty good chance".
