PGA Tour Canada’s California Qualifying School got under way yesterday at Oak Valley Golf Club in Beaumont, CA.

The five-day competition from April 7-11 is the first event of PGA Tour Canada’s 2014 season.

There are 11 Canadians in the field, with 29 more set for next week’s Florida Qualifying Tournament and 53 heading to British Columbia in May.

Here are this week’s Canadians:

  • Rokhun Cho, Toronto
  • Jerry Christiansen, Saskatoon
  • Jessey Church, Prince George
  • Greg Doherty, Mississauga
  • Grant Greenwood, Saskatoon
  • Clement Herviou, Quebec City
  • Andrew Ledger, Toronto
  • Kevin Liang, Markham
  • Sonny Michaud, Rouyn-Noranda
  • Lindsay Reynolds, Christina Lake

Qualifying tournaments in California have a long history of producing successful players for PGA Tour Canada and beyond, including eight who earned PGA Tour Canada cards last year and went on to earn Web.com Tour status for 2014 (Jose Toledo, Chris Epperson, Josh Anderson, Trevor Murphy, Brett Lederer, Nathan Tyler, Tony Finau and Jorge Fernandez Valdes).

Also in the field at last year’s California Q-School were 2013 PGA Tour Canada Player of the Year Mackenzie Hughes (who didn’t earn a card but later played his way into events) and 2013 Bayview Place Island Savings Open presented by Times Colonist winner Stephen Gangluff.

Other players to get their start by playing PGA Tour Canada qualifying in California include PGA Tour winner Brendan Steele and Web.com Tour winners Adam Hadwin and Andres Gonzales.
