OAKVILLE, Ontario (AP) _ Mark Calcavecchia has birdied nine straight holes at the Canadian Open to break the PGA Tour record.

The 49-year-old golfer broke the record set by Bob Goalby in his
1961 St. Petersburg Open victory and matched by Fuzzy Zoeller, Dewey Arnette, Edward Fryatt, J.P. Hayes and Kelly.

Calcavecchia opened the second round Saturday with two pars, then reeled off the nine straight birdies to pull within a stroke of leader Jerry Kelly.

The streak ended on the par-4 third hole when Calcavecchia's chip from over the green went 5 feet past the cup. He saved par to remain 10 under.
