MONTREAL -- It was almost as if Jim Furyk, Graham DeLaet and Matt Kuchar were a team when they went on a birdie spree in the second round of the US$5.7 million RBC Canadian Open on Friday. The threesome were all smiles after they combined for 22 birdies (and only three bogeys), while Furyk and DeLaet tied the course record with 63s in near-perfect scoring conditions at Royal Montreals usually daunting Blue course. Furyk, who birdied four straight holes early in his round, emerged with a share of the tournament lead at 10-under 130 with veteran Tim Petrovic, who shot 66. Weyburn, Sask., native DeLaet in was in a tie for third at 8-under 132 with Kyle Stanley, who had 67. "Theyre fun to play golf with," Furyk said of DeLaet and Kuchar. "We chatted a lot out there. "And then to have everyone play well, youre seeing birdie putts going in, its a lot of fun. And I think you can feed off that a little bit. Those guys are making birdies, you feel like putts are going in, its a good vibe." In a way they are a team. They are among the 10 PGA Tour players sponsored by RBC that includes Graeme McDowell, who had five birdies of his own for a 65 to sit at 7-under 133 along with Justin Hicks (67), Scott Brown (66) and Andrew Svoboda (66). Kuchars 65 put him in a group at 6-under 134 that included first-round co-leader Michael Putnam, who shot 70. The entire RBC-sponsored crew plays the Canadian Open, which many top stars skipped to rest up after last weeks British Open at Royal Liverpool. The 44-year-old Furyk had extra motivation. He won the event back-to-back in 2006 and 2007. One more win would put him in a tie for the second-most Canadian Open titles with Tommy Armour, Sam Snead and Lee Trevino. Leo Diegel won four in the 1920s. "Winning any event is special," said Furyk, who has 16 career victories. "Ive had a lot of success (in Canada) and really a lot of support here. "But were only at the halfway point." Furyk came into the tournament off a sizzling 65 at Royal Liverpool on Sunday that got him fourth place in the British Open. He hopped on a charter after that round to get to the Canadian Open in time to readjust to the Eastern time zone and get reacquainted with the course, which he played while on the U.S. team that defeated the Internationals at the 2007 Presidents Cup. With the fairways and greens softened by heavy rain on Wednesday, Royal Montreal was ready to be taken. "The golf course is soft and receptive, and they have it set up where we can attack and fire at pins, so scores are going to be good," he said. "It would be a totally different scenario if these greens were firm." DeLaet isnt short of motivation either. Canadas top-ranked player at No. 31 in FedEx Cup standings is seeking his first PGA Tour win and would like nothing more than to become the first home grown player to win the Canadian Open since Pat Fletcher in 1954. He started the second round at 1-under, then posted five birdies on the first eight holes and nine on the day to go with a pair of bogeys. "I felt I was in control of my game all day, with a couple of little hiccups," the 32-year-old said. "I mean, all three of us played great. "I never saw so many putts rolling in. It was a lot of fun. We were feeding off each other. When you see putts rolling in from everywhere like it was in our group, you just feel like puttings easy or something and you just start holing them." Tying the course record was a particular thrill for the Canadian. It was set in the second round the last time the Canadian Open was played at Royal Montreal in 2001 by David Morland and Scott Verplank, the tournament winner. "To share a course record here is pretty special and to have two guys in one group do it is pretty amazing," said DeLaet. Petrovic has been a surprise. The 47-year-old was on a family vacation when he got the call on Tuesday that he was in the Canadian Open as the seventh alternate when another player withdrew. He arrived the next day and barely had time to look at the course. Then he opened with a six-under 64 and followed with a 66 to take a share of the lead. I have been hitting the ball really well for about the last three weeks," said Petrovic, who missed the cut at his last five tournaments. "Ive seen signs of some good rounds coming. "Am I surprised? Maybe a little." The cut was set at even-par 140 and 73 players made it, including six of the 19 Canadians in the field: DeLaet, David Hearn of Brampton, Ont at 3-under 137 after a 70, Adam Hadwin of Moose Jaw, Sask. at 1-under 139 from a 69, and Mike Weir of Brights Grove, Ont. (70), Brad Fritsch of Ottawa (68) and amateur Taylor Pendrith of Richmond Hills, Ont. (75), all at even-par 70. It was a rough day for Pendrith, who stole the show in Thursdays opening round with a 65. The 23-year-old gave back all his strokes by shooting five over par. "It was a disappointing round," said Pendrith, who had a double bogey, four bogeys and only one birdie. "To play well yesterday and come out and not play my best, I didnt hit many greens -- only six -- and didnt give myself too many chances for birdies. "My short game was pretty good -- I had a few nice saves -- so I cant be too disappointed about that. The ball striking was off today."

CHICAGO -- Anthony Rizzo went deep in the third inning and Starlin Castro connected in the fourth. Mike Olt broke it open with another big swing in the eighth. It was a powerful end to a difficult city series for the Chicago Cubs. Rizzo, Castro and Olt homered, and the Cubs stopped a four-game slide with a 12-5 victory over the Chicago White Sox on Thursday night. "We had some good at-bats, some big at-bats in some key situations," rookie manager Rick Renteria said, "and then we got some thump, got some balls hit well." Rizzo had three hits and scored three times as the Cubs salvaged the finale of the four-game set against their crosstown rivals. Olt, Ryan Kalish, Nate Schierholtz and Junior Lake had two hits apiece in a game that took 4 hours, 7 minutes. The Cubs put it away with five runs in the eighth, highlighted by Olts first career grand slam. Maikel Cleto also hit Welington Castillo with a bases-loaded pitch, ending the White Sox bullpens shutout streak at 23 1-3 innings. Olt also batted with the bases loaded in the third and popped out to shortstop. "I was upset with myself because with less than two outs Ive got to at least get someone in, move someone over," he said. "Ive got to do my job. To get another chance late in the game and come through like that definitely helped." The Cubs finished with 15 hits after managing just five runs and 12 hits in the first three games against the White Sox. "We did more damage than them today," Rizzo said. Alexei Ramirez had four singles for the White Sox, who had won four in a row. Conor Gillaspie went 2 for 4 with a walk in his first action since he was activated from the disabled list Wednesday after being sidelined with a bruised left hand. The White Sox got Adam Dunn back after he missed a game due to a bruised right calf, but rookie slugger Jose Abreu was hampered by a left ankle injury. Abreu, who is off to a terrific start with 12 homers and 35 RBIs, hobbled down the line each time he put the ball in play. "He just seemed like he was limping a little bit tonight, thats why in the end there I (took) him out," said manager Robin Ventura, who had Marcus Semien hit for Abreu in the ninth.dddddddddddd"But he says hes fine." Abreu did not speak with the media after the game. The Cubs jumped on Scott Carroll (1-2) for four runs in the third, sending 10 batters to the plate. Luis Valbuena singled in Kalish before Rizzo hit a drive to centre for his seventh homer. Lake added a bases-loaded walk to make it 4-2. Rizzo also walked and scored when Castro connected in the fourth. Castro went 1 for 15 with two walks during the Cubs losing streak. Carroll departed after Olt and Lake started the fifth with consecutive singles. The 29-year-old rookie was charged with 11 hits and six runs after he pitched well in each of his first two major league starts. "It was just a situation where I didnt have my best stuff tonight," Carroll said. "I left a few pitches up when I obviously didnt have the ability to do so. Kind of just fighting it the whole time." The White Sox got two runs back in the fourth on RBI singles by Gillaspie and Tyler Flowers. But five Cubs relievers combined for five innings of one-run ball after Jake Arrietas shaky outing. Brian Schlitter (2-0) got five outs for the win. Arrieta allowed four runs, three earned, and nine hits in four innings. He pitched 5 1-3 scoreless innings in a no-decision against St. Louis on Saturday in his first start of the season. NOTES: White Sox ace Chris Sale (left arm) felt fine after throwing a bullpen session Wednesday, and Ventura said the left-hander probably will throw again on Saturday. "Hes progressing. He doesnt feel anything," Ventura said. "In talking to him, he says everything feels good." Ventura said he thinks the team will have a better idea this weekend about a rehab schedule for Sale. ... Cubs general manager Jed Hoyer said Jeff Samardzijas 126 pitches on Monday night "is just a story that should probably die." He said the front office, Renteria and Samardzija are all on the same page. ... The Cubs send RHP Jason Hammel (4-1, 2.43 ERA) to the mound when they open a weekend series at Atlanta on Friday night. RHP Julio Teheran (2-2, 1.80 ERA) is slated to pitch for the Braves. ' ' '
