In his first round since coming second at The Open Championship, Matt Kuchar required medical aid at the RBC Canadian Open because he felt ‘dizzy and weak’.

The 39-year-old first experienced the discomfort after picking his ball up from the green and struggled to recover, with recurring issues, on his way to an opening round 71.

Kuchar battled valiantly against Jordan Spieth at Royal Birkdale in England on Sunday before coming up three shots short; however he doesn’t feel the events of the weekend nor the travel are linked to the uneasiness.

“I had a couple of spells where I got a little bit of dizzy and I felt weak,” Kuchar described.

“I don’t know where it came from. I’ve had plenty of time to get over the travel back from England.

“Hopefully, it’s just something that passes real quickly. I shook it off the couple times it happened,” he finished.

Kuchar had reached four-under-par through 11 holes before the onset of his dizziness. He would go on to then double-bogey the 12th and finish at one-under, six shots off the lead.

The American is set to continue in the tournament as things stand with his second round teeing off today.
