ILE-BIZARD, Que. - There were so many birdies recorded by one particular group at the RBC Canadian Open on Friday, they didn’t need a scorer. They needed an ornithologist.

A threesome consisting of two-time Canadian Open champion Jim Furyk, Canada’s own Graham DeLaet, and 2012 Players champion Matt Kuchar recorded a grand total of 22 birdies during their second round play, with Furyk and DeLaet shooting course record, 7-under par 63’s. The golden round moved all three up in the standings. Furyk sits tied for first with a two-day score of 130, 10 under par, with fellow American Tim Petrovic, who shot a -4 under 66 on Friday.

DeLaet, a native of Weyburn, Sask. is in third, two back at 132, and is striking distance of becoming the first Canadian to win the national championship since English-born Pat Fletcher in 1954.

Kuchar sits tied for fifth with a two-day score of 134.
