VICTORIA, Australia (Golf Canada) — Team Canada’s Joey Savoie fired a 7-under 64 to momentarily break the course record at the Royal Melbourne Golf Club at the Australian Master of the Amateurs.

Savoie, a La Prairie, Que., product, marched up the leaderboard on the heels of a bogey-free, seven-birdie effort to leap 26 spots in the final standings. The Middle Tennessee University grad finished T10 at 4 over par with fellow Amateur Squad member Hugo Bernard of Mont-Saint-Hilaire, Que.

Savoie was one of four competitors to set a course record at Royal Melbourne, including champion David Micheluzzi of host nation Australia. Micheluzzi won by a comfortable five-stroke margin with a final score of 14 under par.
