Brown shoots course record

Associated Press  |  Last updated January 30, 2013
New Zealander Mark Brown shot a course-record 62 on Wednesday to win the Australasian regional qualifying tournament for July's British Open. Brown finished the two-round International Final Qualifying tournament at Melbourne's Kingston Heath Golf Club at 10-under par, capturing one of three qualifying places available to the 72-strong field. Australian Steven Jeffress finished at 9-under after a second round 67 and compatriot Stephen Dartnall shot 69 to finish 8-under and to claim the other two qualifying spots. Brown had an eagle and eight birdies in his round Wednesday to beat Ian Poulter's course record of 64 set at the 2012 Australian Masters. ''I made a lot of birdies and when I was six under after nine it started to get serious,'' Brown said. The Australasian tournament is one of a series of regional events on five continents that give players a chance to qualify for the Open Championship at Muirfield from July 18 to 21.
