With 95 players participating, the open qualifier is an 18-hole stroke play format. There are 10 tournament exemptions available for the PGA Tour Canada event through the open qualifier.
The players range in age from 17 to 51 and have travelled from all across North America for their chance to qualify for the PGA Tour Canada event. With the course playing at a little more than 6,600 yards, competition will be tough and the tension will build with the limited exemptions available.
The open qualifier features many established players, as well as numerous CJGA alumni. Notable players include former PGA Tour professional David Morland and 2013 Masters Tournament participant TJ Vogel.
Several Canadian Junior Golf Association alumni are in the field and they include Christopher Magi, Cole Sadlier, Shea Varty, Brett Cairns and Eric Hawerchuck.
