Canada’s Joey Savoie finishes T4 at Terra Cotta InvitationalWritten by Golf Canada
NAPLES, Fla. – International success has been a growing trend this season for Team Canada’s Joey Savoie.
The 23-year-old La Prairie, Que., native finished the Terra Cotta Invitational in a tie for 4th on Sunday at the Naples National Golf Club. Savoie’s play was underlined by a 4-under-par 68 in Saturday’s second round—good for the second-lowest score of the tournament.
Savoie finished the 54-hole stroke play event at 2 under par, three strokes back of champion Fernardo Barco of Peru.
Since joining Team Canada in 2017, the Middle Tennessee State senior has top-10 finishes at The Azalea Invitational, the Australian Master of the Amateurs, coupled with a victory at the Tailhade Cup.
Fellow Team Canada member Hugo Bernard of Mont-Saint-Hilaire, Que., finished T12 at 4 over par (71-75-74). Newfoundland’s Blair Bursey was T10 at 3 over par (71-72-76).
Team Canada Development Squad graduate Tony Gil captured the event in 2016. Former champions include PGA TOUR starts Justin Thomas and Matt Kuchar.
