OAKVILLE, Ontario (AP) â Matt Kuchar rallied to make the cut in the RBC Canadian Open on Friday, a day after fighting dizzy spells.
Coming off a second-place finish Sunday in the British Open, Kuchar shot a 4-under 68 to reach 5 under â leaving him seven strokes behind second-round leader Martin Flores at Glen Abbey.
On Thursday, Kuchar had a couple of dizzy spell and sought medical attention during the round.
“I’m still tired,” the RBC endorser said. “The last two weeks I’ve played some good golf. Certainly last week, being in contention, is draining and another busy week this week.”
After making a double bogey on the No. 10 to drop to 1 over for the tournament, Kuchar made a 20-foot eagle putt on the par-5 13th and closed with three straight birdies.
“I really needed some good golf coming in to make the cut,” Kuchar said. “I was really pleased to come through.”
Flores shot his second straight 6-under 66 on the rain-softened course.

He eagled the par-5 second for the second day in a row.
“I hit a great drive,” Flores said. “I had about 185 yards. Hit a nice 7-iron to 15, 20 feet and made the putt. That was a bonus.”
Gary Woodland (63), Matt Every (68) and Brandon Hagy (68) were a stroke back at 11 under. Woodland was a stroke off the course record of 62 set by Leonard Thompson in 1981
