ROUGH START The opening tee shots were in play at Royal Montreal when the strap on Hunter Mahan's bag came undone when caddie John Woods lifted it.
In what looked like an emergency rescue mission, a half-dozen officials scurried over to the bag to try to fix it. Wood simply picked it up by the handle and was on his way when an old friend bailed him out.
Jim Mackay, the looper for Phil Mickelson, showed how many times he's been around the block by pulling out a carabiner he keeps in his bag for such emergencies. Woods used the mountain climbing tool to fasten the strap back on the bag, and he was on his way.
