TORONTO (KAIT) - A Jonesboro native was near the top of the leaderboard north of the border.

Austin Cook shot 69 in the final round of the RBC Canadian Open. The JHS & Razorback alum finished -8 overall and tied for 13th. He missed five straight cuts before getting into the money this week. Cook drained a 68 foot putt for birdie on the par-3 6th.

Austin fired 68 in the 3rd round. Saturday’s scorecard was headlined by an eagle on 9 plus back-to-back birdies on 10 and 11.

Cook got into contention after posting 64 on Friday. He had 6 birdies and 0 bogeys on the scorecard.

The T13 result in Canada is one of Cook’s best results in the 2021-22 PGA Tour season. Austin was T11 at the Fortinet Championship in September 2021. Cook moves up 18 spots to 174th in the FedExCup standings. The top 125 players at the end of the regular season qualify for the PGA Tour Playoffs. The first postseason stop is in Memphis at the FedEx St. Jude Championship (August 11th-14th).
