MARKHAM, Ontario, July 26 (UPI) -- Hunter Mahan holed out from the fairway twice Thursday, made three eagles and took a two-shot lead after one round of the Canadian Open.
Mahan shot a 9-under 62 over the Angus Glen Golf Club's South Course, equaling the lowest first-round total ever produced in the 103-year-old event.
Mahan's first eagle came at his second hole, the par-5 11th, where he reached the green in two and holed a 10-foot putt.
He holed his second shot from 189 yards with a 6-iron at the par-4 18th, and then made another eagle at the short, par-4 ninth when his sand wedge from 81 yards found the cup.
"It was crazy," he said. "Two hole-outs on the fairway. I've never done that before. To have the lowest first round in the history of the tournament, that is pretty special. Especially a tournament like this that's been around forever."
