Englishman Tommy Fleetwood sat three off the lead at the Canadian Open after completing a first round delayed by thunderstorms in Ontario.

The world number 11, 12th in last week's Open, had two holes to finish at 07:00 local time on Friday morning.

The 27-year-old birdied the closing par five to return a six-under 66, alongside compatriot Ian Poulter, who carded a bogey-free 66 on Thursday.

American Robert Garrigus birdied five holes in succession to lead with a 63.

Fleetwood became the first player on the PGA Tour this season to record three eagles in a round when he reached five under after 16 holes on Thursday.

After playing the two holes to complete his round, he had to make a swift return to the Glen Abbey course on Friday morning, beginning his second round at 08:20 as he continued his quest for a maiden PGA title.

Northern Ireland's Graeme McDowell is one further back at five under, dropping a shot at the first but compiling six birdies.

World number one Dustin Johnson is four under after a mixed round containing six birdies, an eagle and four bogeys.
