TORONTO (AP) - Brent Delahoussaye shot an 8-under 62 on Thursday to match the Canadian Open record, making an eagle, seven birdies and a bogey in perfect scoring conditions at historic St. George’s.

Delahoussaye, the 29-year-old former Clemson player whose lone professional victory came in the 2006 Hooters Tour Classic, teed off on the ninth hole and played the front nine _ his first and last eight holes _ in 6-under 28.

Four other players have shot 62s in the Canadian Open, the first three at Glen Abbey. Leonard Thompson set the mark in 1981, Andy Bean matched it in 1983, both at a par of 71, and Greg Norman did it in 1986, when par was 72. Hunter Mahan had a 9-under 62 at Angus Glen in 2007.

Delahoussaye also broke the course record of 64 set by Canadian George Knudson in 1968.
