MIRABEL, Que. -- Is Hillsdale Golf and Country Club getting caught with its pants down?

That seems to be case as the world's top women golfers enjoy ideal scoring conditions at this week's CN Canadian Open.

"The fairway is wide open and the greens are big," tournament co-leader Ai Miyazato said after her round Friday. "It's pretty much receptive. You can be aggressive."

Canadian golf fans will remember a similar situation at last year's RBC Canadian Open at St. George's G&CC in Etobicoke. The men took advantage of similar soft greens during the first three rounds before the course firmed up Sunday. Winner Karl Petterson shot a course record 60 in the third round that week.

What will it take to win this week at Hillside?

"I don't know, close to 20-under par," Miyazato said. "But it depends on the weather and it depends on the pin positions as well."

Her plan for the weekend?

"I'll just try to make as many birdies as I can."

Good plan.
