Watson’s second shot on the par-4 fifth traveled 65 feet in the wrong direction, according to ShotLink and Watson was unable to recover to save par. The bogey was only one of two he made on the day en route to a 2-under par 70 during the first round.
Watson trails first-round leader Robert Garrigus by seven strokes heading into Friday’s second round at Glen Abby Golf Club in Ontario.
