After a roller coaster back nine on Day 1 of the Canadian Open, Dustin Johnson produced a stress-free 69 on Friday at Glen Abbey Golf Club.
Johnson began his round making six straight pars, before executing a stylish up-and-down at the par-5 16th for his first birdie of the day, and would make the turn at 1-under with a 36. The world No. 1 would shave another stroke at the par-5 second, thanks to a great pitch shot from left of the putting surface.

After parring Nos. 3 and 4, Johnson would make back-to-back birdies at the fifth and sixth, moving him to 9-under for the tournament. The 33-year-old would eventually drop a shot coming in, failing to get up-and-down at the par-4 eighth.
Johnson would hit nine fairways, miss only two greens in regulation in his round, and is 32-under in his last 10 trips around Glen Abbey.
