"This rough is nasty".
Nick Taylor shot a 5-under 65 and was tied with Snedeker at 11-under.
I played really well. "I think I left every putt a foot short yesterday", said Snedeker, who had a 1-under 69 in the opening round.
Snedeker threatened a sub 60 round when he reached 9 under on the par 60 golf course through 15 holes but although able to birdie the last he was unable to pick up the extra shot he needed to reach that milestone for the second occasion having done so for the first time in 2018.
The idea is to make "The Rink" one of golf's most identifiable marquee holes much like "The Island" hole at the Players Championship and the raucous 16th at the Phoenix Open.

"More often than not, you're getting beat up".

Rory McIlroy blitzed the field at the Canadian Open on Sunday, firing a scintillating nine-under 61 to run away with the title by a massive seven strokes less than a week before the US Open.
Notable Canadians who missed the cut, set at two under, include Corey Conners, victor of the 2019 Valero Texas Open, PGA Tour rookie Adam Svensson, European Tour player Austin Connelly, and former Masters victor Mike Weir (all at one under). "Just lay low when I have to and just go for it when I really need to". In fact, he's a proud member of the 59 club.
Adam Hadwin, seeking to become the first Canadian victor of the event since 1954, was one shot back after a 67. "I've done a good job of kind of managing and giving myself some good chances". It would have been his first birdie of the week on the hole. "I would like to hit driver everywhere, but you've just got to play the golf course". Sorry for being disappointed up here but I had a chance. His previous best closing score to win a tournament was a 62 at the Quail Hollow Championship in 2010.
Jim Furyk is the only one to accomplish the feat, managing an all-time record 58, as well as a 59.
"As a Canadian it's so thrilling to be out there and hearing the cheers and hearing the support". Many in the gallery on Friday were holding cut-outs of the golfer's face as they followed his play.
