PGA TOUR CANADA


TALENTED PLAYERS Those who make it through Q-school will join a group of talented players that includes last year’s leading money winner Matt


Hill, a former North


Carolina State standout who won 10 NCAA events including the 2009 NCAA championship; Nick Taylor, who holds the record for the lowest round by an amateur at the U.S. Open and once ranked as the top amateur in the game; and Big Break: PEI winner Derek Gillespie. Other current players


are excited


about the prospects of a rejuvenated Tour. “It’s only going to help,” said Michael


Gligic, who finished second on the money list last year. “With the five [Web.com Tour] exemptions, I think there’s more incentive for players to come and play.” To that extent, Gligic said he expects


very few players to miss any of the nine stops in the hunt for passes to the next level: “I’m sure it’s going to be very competitive and that’s good.” In addition to preparing players to


reach the next level, Monday said PGA TOUR Canada also wants to provide a PGA TOUR-like experience for fans, organizers, sponsors


communities. “It will be at a different level, of


course, but it’s important for us to give back,” he said. “We know that Canadians have a great passion for the game of golf.” Monday said the Tour will call on


players to do more than just tee it up on the course. He’s hoping to have them involved in charitable causes, junior clinics, hospital visits and more every week. He’s also hoping PGA TOUR Canada will develop the next wave


Canadian golfers. “Every Tour we operate is an open competition, but we know that


important to grow the game of golf in Canada and develop top professional players,” Monday said. With the strength of the PGA TOUR


now behind it, Canadian golf, golfers and golf fans can look forward to an exciting summer. ■
