Cook breaks course record at Fontainebleau
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.
