ANCASTER -- Jim Furyk, who is tied for the lead after a seven-under 63, was the lone member of the four members of the United States Ryder Cup team that is participating in the Canadian Open to distinguish himself yesterday.

Stewart Cink was at one-under 69 while Zach Johnson was even-par 70 and Vaughn Taylor a miserable nine-over 79.

SIGNS OF LIFE

Mark Calcavecchia, last year's champ, shot a 66 to surprise himself.

"It was a good day," he said. "It hasn't been a very good year. Maybe I could be coming to life here. Maybe I just needed to get to Canada to do it."

Calcavecchia has been battling with a variety of injuries this year.

"I've been struggling and I haven't been well physically," he said.

EAGLE OF HEARN

The Canadian shot of the day went to Brantford's David Hearn, who started his round on the 10th hole, a 412-yard par-four. Hearn holed his second shot for an eagle two and finished the day at one-under, 69.
