Team Canada was sticking together at the U.S. Open Tuesday.

Fans from north of the border had it easy as Mike Weir, David Hearn, Adam Hadwin and Mackenzie Hughes played an early morning practice round together at Merion Golf Club just outside of Philadelphia..

"It was a great day," Weir said from behind the 18th green following his round. "Coming off yesterday, when I came out in the afternoon, it looked like we might not play at all today because of all the rain."

Like many other players, Hearn didn't play a full round, leaving the course to continue his preparation elsewhere after the 12th hole. Young pros Hadwin and Hughes, on the other hand, fully intended on playing all 18 holes with Canada's most decorated pro.
