PRO GOLF ROUNDUP | Thursday’s events
Matt Kuchar fought dizzy spells in the first round of the RBC Canadian Open, four days after finishing second behind Jordan Spieth in the British Open at Royal Birkdale. “I had a couple of spells where I got a little bit of dizzy and I feel weak,” Kuchar said. “I don’t know where it came from. I’ve had plenty of time to get over the travel. Hopefully, it’s just something that passes real quick. ... I shook it off the couple times it happened.” The 39-year-old American became dizzy marking a ball and sought medical attention during the morning round at Glen Abbey. After playing the first 11 holes in 4 under, he made a double bogey on the par-4 third and bogeyed the par-4 eighth en route to a 1-under 71. Kuchar was six strokes behind leaders Kevin Chappell, Matt Every, Hudson Swafford, Brandon Hagy and Ollie Schniederjans in the round that was suspended because of darkness after afternoon play was interrupted for nearly two hours by lightning and rain.
SENIOR BRITISH OPEN
Bernhard Langer shot a 2-under 69 in wind and rain at Royal Porthcawl to take the first-round lead in the Senior British Open. The 59-year-old German star had five birdies and three bogeys for a one-stroke lead over 64-year-old Carl Mason of England and Mauricio Molina of Argentina.
LADIES SCOTTISH OPEN
Hall of Famer Karrie Webb shot a 7-under 65 in cold and windy conditions to take a one-stroke lead over Cristie Kerr in the Ladies Scottish Open. Webb played the final 10 holes in 7 under at Dundonald Links. The 42-year-old Australian star birdied the par-4 ninth, made five straight birdies on Nos. 11-15 and added another birdie on the par-5 18th.
