10:00 - July 28, 2017

Rain-softened courses in Germany and Canada have resulted in lower than expected scoring at both the Porsche European Open and the RBC Canadian Open and I'm going to wait until the halfway stage before analysing either event in depth.
The second round of the Porsche European Open is well underway and live on Sky Sports and it's an event that looks like it might turn in to a really competitive one. Dan Geraghty's each-way pick, Julian Suri, and England's Richard McEvoy set the early pace with six-under-par 66s yesterday and at the time of writing, six-under still leads but with the likes of Charl Schwartzel, Patrick Reed and my man, Alexander Levy, all within one or two strokes starting out this afternoon, it's quite possible that we might get a halfway leaderboard featuring a number of the pre-tournament favourites.

Over at the RBC Canadian Open, a weather delay meant the first round didn't quite get finished yesterday but the placings for the first round leader market won't be affected by the conclusion of the first round and Dan Geraghty's 66'/1 pick, Ollie Schniederjans, is one of five men to have shot a seven-under-par 65 to tie for the lead.

As many as 32 players are within two of the lead at Glen Abbey and waiting a bit longer before getting involved in-running looks the only sensible course of action. The pre-tournament favourite, Dustin Johnson, is one of those tied for 17th and just two adrift and he's now trading at just 4.80.
DJ is one of those with an early tee time today so how he fares will have a big bearing on what the market does. It's never easy to predict what DJ will do and he dropped two shots immediately after the weather delay yesterday, at holes 10 and 11. He soon recovered with a birdie at 12 and an eagle at 13 though and I wonder whether he might have been at least a couple of shots better had the weather delay not occurred.
