Thumbs-up

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - SPORTS -

Graham DeLaet’s tough. He’s a golfer. The Wey­burn, Sask., na­tive in­jured his left thumb dur­ing the first round of the RBC Cana­dian Open on Thurs­day, but still fin­ished his round and ex­pects to keep play­ing to­day. Frus­trated by the in­jury, DeLaet was glad to shoot even-par 72 to sit eight strokes off the lead. “I was able to kind of grind away there at the end with a cou­ple good birdies on 16 and 18,” said DeLaet, who was in­jured on the 12th hole and dou­ble-bo­geyed No. 17. “We (tee) off to­mor­row morn­ing. As long as I feel healthy, if I can shoot 4- or 5-un­der, (I can) kind of just slowly kind of creep back in this tour­na­ment.” Emil­iano Grillo leads the tour­na­ment at 8-un­der 64.
