In 25 starts on the PGA TOUR this season, Putnam has made 19 cuts and posted three top-25 finishes to sit 99th in the FedExCup standings.

Putnam has held or shared the lead after 18 holes eight times on the Web.com Tour. He converted one of those into victory at the 2013 Mexico Championship.

Putnam is in his third full season on the PGA TOUR and is looking to make the FedExCup playoffs for the first time after finishing 136th in 2011 and 141st in 2007.

Putnam’s previous best position after Round 1 on the PGA TOUR is T3 after an opening 64 at the 2005 Buick Championship. He would go on to finish T-3.

Tim Petrovic

Tim Petrovic shot an opening 64 after being the last player to get in the field. Petrovic was initially the eighth player on the alternate list but got in after Benjamin Alvarado withdrew on Tuesday.

Petrovic’s 64 gave him the fifth lead or co-lead of his PGA TOUR career. His best finish among those starts is a solo second at the 2002 FedEx St. Jude Classic. He also opened with a 64 once before at the 2013 Shriners Hospitals for Children Open and went on to finish T26

Petrovic is making just his eighth start of the season on the PGA TOUR. He made the first two cuts of his season and posted a top-25 finish in March at the Puerto Rico Open (T13) but has not made a cut since. He ranks 205th in the FedExCup standings.

Petrovic is making his ninth RBC Canadian Open, with his opening 64 marking his best-ever round in the event. His best finish is T15 in 2007.

Taylor Pendrith

Golf Canada National Amateur Team member Taylor Pendrith, making his first start on the PGA TOUR, opened with a 5-under 65 in round one to sit in a tie for 3rd.

Pendrith recently finished his final season at Kent State University, where he played in the NCAA Championships all four seasons and was named Co-Mid-American Conference Golfer of the Year with teammate Corey Conners. He won the 2013 Porter Cup and finished second at the 2014 Mid-American Conference Championship.

Pendrith’s round put him in the best position by an amateur through one round at the RBC Canadian Open since Victor Ciesielski was T-29 in 2006. The last amateur to finish in the top-10 at the RBC Canadian Open is Patrick Cantlay (T9, 2011).

Kyle Stanley

Kyle Stanley shot an opening 65, his best opening round since his 62 at the 2012 Farmers Insurance Open, where he went on to fall to 2013 RBC Canadian Open champion Brandt Snedeker in a playoff.

Stanley ranks 192nd on TOUR in Strokes Gained – Putting but led the field in R1 (+4.676).

Stanley was 14/14 on putts inside of 10 feet on Thursday and 2/2 on putts from 20’-25’ (23’2 for birdie on 17, 20’4 for birdie on 15). Overall he made 115’0 of putts in Round 1.

Making his 26th start of the season, Stanley is without a top-10 and has just one top-25 (T-19, CIMB Classic). Stanley ranks 197th in the FedExCup standings.

Stanley is playing in his third (consecutive and overall) RBC Canadian Open. He finished T-12 in 2013 and T-61 in 2012.

Stanley finds himself paired in an All-Clemson grouping for the first two rounds, playing alongside former Tigers Lucas Glover and Jonathan Byrd.

Watney is making his 21st start of the season and is looking for his first top-10. His last top-10 was a 2nd place finish at the 2013 BMW Championship.

After his runner-up finish at the BMW Championship, Watney was ranked 27th in the Official World Golf Ranking but has since fallen to 82nd. Watney has been ranked as high as No. 10 in 2011.
