Weir grabs one-shot lead

Ontario:

It was an absolutely beautiful day for the second round of the Bell Canadian Open. Canadian Mike Weir gave his rabid fans something to cheer about with an outstanding shot on the par-5, fifth hole. The Canadian Open, the third-oldest national championship in golf, has never been kind to Weir. He missed the cut the first nine times he played, and has never been a fan of the Abbey. Craig Barlow stands just three shots behind Weir. Barlow lowered his score to 6-under par with a birdie on the seventh hole. Weir continued his fine iron play, with a great approach shot on the ninth hole. Then Weir stepped up and calmly sank the short birdie to lower his score to 9-under par, giving Weir a two-shot edge. Meanwhile, world No. 1 Vijay Singh is in position for his seventh win of the year after carding a 65 - one shot behind Weir. He made two excellent birdies on the 14th and 15th holes. Swedish veteran Jesper Parnevik is among a trio of golfers at 6-under par, along with Perez and Barlow. Parnevik made a delicate chip from the rough on the par-3, 12th hole to set up a par putt.
