Canada's Nick Taylor has set a new course record at the RBC Canadian Open.

Taylor, from Abbotsford, B.C., fired a 9-under 63 at Oakdale Golf and Country Club on Saturday.

He surpassed the record of 8 under that England's Tyrrell Hatton matched in Friday's second round.

Oakdale actually has 27 holes on its property and is using a composite course for the PGA Tour event.

The impressive showing rocketed Taylor up the leaderboard to hold the top spot by two strokes.

China's Carl Yuan was the second-round leader at 9-under overall.
