Those are low scores, eh?

PGA golfers are logging low scores this weekend.

Brent Delahoussaye surprised everyone when he shot a 62 at the Canadian Open at St. George’s Golf and Country Club in Toronto. He has since slipped down the leader board.

Carl Pettersson, a Swedish linkster, launched himself into the hunt for the open’s championship with a third round 60. Pettersson carded five birdies on the back nine, including three consecutive from 13-15, to finish 10-under for the day. Pettersson bogeyed the second hole but easily made up for it with eagles on both holes nine and 11.

Pettersson shot rounds of 71 and 68 in Thursday and Friday, respectively, but now only trails Dean Wilson by one stroke. (Wilson was through nine when this column was written).

Pettersson’s 60 is the second in three weeks, following Steve Stricker’s 60 at the John Deere Classic – during the same round Paul Goydos shot 59.

Other impressive rounds at the Canadian Open include Kevin Sutherland’s 62 in the second round; Bryce Molder’s 63 in the third; and Brock Mackenzie and Vance Veazey, who each shot a 64 during the competition.
