Canadian Open birdie binge continues as Robert Garrigus takes over lead
Ancaster, Ont. — Robert Garrigus has figured out that at the RBC Canadian Open this week, the fairways-and-greens strategy endlessly espoused by Tour pros is a recipe for being passed by a great deal of golfers.“I’m going to have to make birdies tomorrow,” said the 33-year-old from Indiana, who has hit the ball typically long and atypically straight through three rounds to get to 16 under par, good for a one-shot lead heading into Sunday. He has made one bogey in 54 holes.“I usually make a few here and there because I hit it crooked every once in a while,” Garrigus said, grinning after his Saturday round of 64. “I’m used to hitting from the trees, and I’ve been hitting from the fairway.”Garrigus leads the field this week with an average driving distance of 323 yards, and he’s tied for fifth in driving accuracy. He said he will need to lean on that ball striking on Sunday.“I think I have to get to 21-under par, which is crazy to say on this golf course in a national open, but that’s just the way the course is playing.”Garrigus, who held a three-shot lead going to the final hole of last year’s St. Jude Classic in Memphis, says he’s “not even close to to the same” player who coughed up that lead by driving into a hazard off the tee and eventually making a triple bogey. He’s more mature now, he said.“I actually like to know where I’m at on the 18th hole instead of just being an idiot and not knowing I have a three-shot lead and blowing it into the bushes on the right,” he said, adding that he’s also in much better shape.“I rarely find myself sweating on the golf course,” he said. “If you remember Memphis, I was sweating like a pig.”Garrigus is one shot ahead of William McGirt, the 33-year-old South Carolinian who had never finished in the top 10 on Tour until last week, when he was fifth at the True South Classic. McGirt, who has followed his opening 63 here with a pair of 66s, said he was helped by playing Saturday with Garrigus, one of the most relaxed and affable players on Tour.
