Brent Breaks Record in Toronto

Brent Delahoussaye broke the course record at St George’s in Toronto today to take a two shot lead at the Canadian Open.

Delahoussaye took a fantastic eight under 62 on a course that pre round he didn’t believe suited him very well.

“I’ve been hitting it well. I was just getting in my own way,” Delahoussaye said. “Today, I was like, you know what, `I’m just going to go out there and play. This course doesn’t set up good for me, so I’m just going to go out there with a good attitude and not worry about it.’ And look where I am now.”

In the course record breaking round he landed seven birdies, an eagle and a bogey. Brent only needed 24 putts in a round that saw him hit 13 of the 14 fairways in regulation.

Joint second place was awarded to Brock Mackenzie and Vance Veazey who put in rounds of six under, below them are a host of nine players on five under.

Stephen Ames and Jon Mills are the highest scoring Canadians who lie joint 24th after finishing with rounds of 67. Amateur Canadian golfer Nick Taylor had the perfect start to his Open with an eagle on the first hole and ended the day with a 71 along with the other three highest placed Canadian amateurs.

Englishman Paul Casey could only manage a two under round with fellow countryman Luke Donald finishing one under.
