Johnson in joint-lead at Canadian Open

US Open champion Dustin Johnson fired a six-under 66 yesterday morning (Singapore time) to seize a share of the lead at the US PGA Tour's Canadian Open at Glen Abbey Golf Club.

The 11-time PGA winner made seven birdies, an eagle, a bogey and a double-bogey to move into a tie atop the leaderboard with Luke List at the Toronto-area course.

Defending champion and world No. 1 Jason Day opened with a 69 and is three shots back of the leaders.

He is seeking to become the first repeat winner of the Canadian Open since Jim Furyk in 2006 and 2007.

Canada's Jared du Toit, Chesson Hadley, Kelly Kraft and Jon Rahm are tied for third at 67.
