By my count, there are 16 marquee names in the field at the RBC Canadian Open this week. Considering it’s the week after a major, on another continent no less, and that number is actually pretty good. Fortunately for us Canadians in attendance, and all of those who will tune in over the weekend, the majority of those 16 guys have played their way into the weekend.

Ten in total have succesfully maneuvered themselves into the final two days, while six are packing their bags and heading home. Here’s where they stand: 

Made the Cut
T-6th — Dustin Johnson (-10)
“The golf course is in too good a shape not to have to go low. Today was fairly windy, but with the greens being receptive and then the greens are perfect, you’re going to have to attack the golf course and you’re going to have to shoot low.”

T-10th — Ian Poulter (-9)

T-23rd — Tommy Fleetwood (-7)
Everyone has been very supportive and welcomed me really well. I would have loved to have been able to do more so far, kind of in the city, so I’ll try and do that with the family really the next three days. But, got a completely different test today with it being soft and the weather, but a really nice golf course. I love the back nine. I absolutely love playing that.

T-44th — Graeme McDowell (-5)

Other notables making it to the weekend:

1st — Kevin Tway (-13)
“I hit the ball long, so every time I’m in the fairway, I’ve usually got a wedge, and it’s easy to take advantage from there.”

T-2nd — Keegan Bradley (-12)
On his Birdie – Eagle – Birdie – Eagle finish —
“Yeah, that was wild. It turned kind of an average day out here into something really special. There’s not many courses you can do that on like you can out here. That’s what makes it such a great event”

T-44th — 2x defending champ Jhonattan Vegas (-5)
“I haven’t really felt like I’ve been doing a lot of good stuff other than making a few putts…. My back, especially at the end, got really tight and kept hitting a bunch of shots long and to the left and made some bad bogeys, which didn’t help.”
