Abbotsford’s Nick Taylor broke a course record Saturday at the RBC Canadian Open in Toronto.

The Robert Bateman alum did it with a 9-under 63 at the Oakdale Golf and Country Club, on his third round of the tournament. His first two rounds at the 72-par course were 75 and 67.

After his first round, he told PGA reporter Adam Stanley that his wife helped get his head in the game.

“My wife gave me a talking to Thursday night,” Taylor told him. “I was just kind of getting in my own way. I probably had a very poor attitude when I was hitting shots maybe weren’t ending up like I wanted to. So, I knew my game was there, but a little kick in the butt didn’t hurt.”

A Canadian has not won this open in almost 70 years.

On Sunday, he teed off against American Andrew Novak at 10:45 a.m. PDT. Adam Hadwin from Abbotsford is also on the course Sunday. The tournament can be watched on various sports coverage providers, including TSN.
