MacIntyre pulls ahead of pack at Canadian Open, Canada’s Hughes tied for 2nd

Scotland’s Robert MacIntyre shot a 4-under 66 in Saturday’s third round of the RBC Canadian Open to add to his lead.

MacIntyre started the day tied with New Zealand’s Ryan Fox two shots ahead of the pack.

But Fox had an even-par 70 to drop back into second at 10 under as MacIntyre surged to a 14-under total.

Mackenzie Hughes of Dundas, Ont., just eight kilometres from Hamilton Golf and Country Club, shot a 3-under 67 to sit in a tie with Fox and American Ben Griffin.

Mackenzie Hughes, who was born in Hamilton, Ont., and grew up in nearby Dundas, Ont., sits tied for 2nd place, four shots back of leader Robert MacIntyre of Scotland, heading into the final round of the RBC Canadian Open, at the Hamilton Golf and Country Club in Ancaster, Ont.

If Hughes can catch MacIntyre in the final round it will be the first time in 110 years that Canadians have won the men’s national golf championship in back-to-back years.

Nick Taylor of Abbotsford, B.C., ended a 69-year drought at the home open at Toronto’s Oakdale Golf and Country Club in 2023.
