Poor start for Arjun Atwal in Canadian Open

Vancouver: Arjun Atwal made the worst possible start to his campaign as he carded a nine-over 79 in the first round of the RBC Canadian Open.

The first Indian to win on the PGA Tour failed to strike a single birdie and stumbled to two double bogeys and five bogeys on what was easily his worse day out on the Tour this season.

A 38-year-old Georgian Kris Blanks shot a three-under 67 to take a one-stroke lead after a tough first day. Only 21 players finished under-par at the Shaughnessy Golf and Country Club.
