Canada-based Zimbabwean Kieran Vincent produced a spectacular six-under 65 in the final round of the Osprey Valley Open to secure his first top 10 finish on the PGA TOUR Canada in Ontario on Sunday.
Kieran, the gifted young brother of top-ranked Zimbabwean golfer Scott Vincent has now made the cut in all his five starts on the PGA TOUR Canada since turning pro last month with a stroke average of 68.63.
Last week he continued his good start to his fledgling golf career with another solid performance at the TPC Toronto at Osprey Valley Golf Club as he edges closer to a maiden professional victory.
Vincent’s closing 65 came after rounds of 70, 65 and 72 were enough to earn him a tie eighth position on 12-under-par 272.
He was just four shots behind the American pair of Cooper Musselman and Danny Walker, who finished tied for the lead in regulation play on a total 16-under-par-268 before the latter won in a playoff.
The tie for eighth in Ontario meant Vincent bettered his previous season-best finish when he tied for 14th at the Prince Edward Island Open early this month.
Vincent was making his first start since his trip to the Open Championship at St Andrews, where he caddied for his brother in his first appearance in a major golf championship.
He will be hoping to continue his good form when the PGA TOUR Canada moves to Tottenham, Ontario, next week at Woodington Lake’s (Legend Course) for the Sotheby’s International Realty Canada Open.
