July 24, 2010
TORONTO -- For a second-consecutive day, Brock Mackenzie shot a 2-under 68 at the RBC Canadian Open and the UW alum is tied for fifth with four other golfers heading into Sunday's final round. Mackenzie is -10 overall (64-68-68-200) at St. George's Golf and Country Club and is five strokes behind leader Darren Wilson.
Mackenzie got his round on Saturday started with a birdie and would add three more later. He only had two bogeys during the day, including one the tough par-4 18th hole.
For Mackenzie, this is just his fourth career PGA Tour event and he has only made one cut previously -- the 2004 B.C. Open, where he tied for 48th.

He qualified for the Canadian Open based his second-place ranking in the order of merit. This year he has earned $ 58,121, but stand to add to that substantially if he can maintain his level of play on Sunday.
Mackenzie is slated to tee off at 1:15 p.m. ET (10:15 a.m. PT) and is paired with Kevin Sutherland. CBS-TV will begin it television coverage at 12 p.m. PT and continue until 3:00 p.m.
