OAKVILLE, Ontario (AP) — Mike Weir aced the fourth hole on Sunday during the third round of the rain-delayed Canadian Open.

Trying to become the first Canadian winner in the national championship since Pat Fletcher in 1954, Weir used a 4-iron on the 200-yard hole Sunday.

The ace was the seventh of the week at Glen Abbey, the most since the tour began keeping extensive records in 1971. There were five in the 2004 John Deere Classic.

After opening with rounds of 71 and 67, Weir was nine under, five strokes off the lead, when play was suspended on Sunday night.
