IRELAND’S SEAMUS POWER is three shots off the lead after a strong first day at the RBC Canadian Open.

Power shot six birdies in an opening round of four-under par 68, one stroke better than Shane Lowry.

But the challengers are stacking up in front of the Irish contingent after a day of low scoring in Oakville.

There’s a five-way tie at the top of the leaderboard with Hudson Swafford, Brandon Hagy, Kevin Chappell, Matt Every and Ollie Schniederjans on seven-under par.

Two-time Masters champion Bubba Watson is among the group on -6, while world number one Dustin Johnson is also right in the mix on -5.
