Cook sets tourney record at Montreal
John Cook shot a 5-under 67 on Sunday and set a tournament course record with a 21-under 195 to win the Montreal Championship by three strokes at the Fontainebleau Golf Club.
Cook, the tournament runner-up last year, erased Chien-Soon Lu’s one-stroke lead and claimed the $270,000 top prize at the Champions Tour’s sole Canadian stop. Cook’s third win on the 50-and-over tour this season came one year after Larry Mize, last year’s champion, overtook him with a 64 on the final day.
Canada’s Rod Spittle shot a course one-day record 10-under 62 to finish 15 under. The Ontario native broke the mark of 63 held by four players – including Cook – and finished in a seventh-place tie, up from a tie for 49th place after two rounds.
