Four Canadian golfers will be seeking greater status on the Web.com Tour this week at the final stage of their qualifying tournament.
The field will be playing the two courses at the Whirlwind Golf Club at Wildhorse Pass in Chandler, Arizona over 72 holes as they chase the positions that will largely determine their playing schedules for 2019.
Brad Fritsch (Manotick, Ontario and Holly Spring, NC), Seann Harlingten (Vancouver, B.C), Michael Gligic (Kitchener, Ontario), and Albin Choi (Toronto and Jupiter, Florida) are the Canadians in the field of 136 players.
The big carrot they are all seeking is the medalist position. The lowest scoring player of the week (and ties) will be exempt for 2019 and not subject to the reshuffle that happens three times during the season.
The next best status comes for the golfers who finish after the winner and through the 10th place (plus ties) as they will be exempt until the 3rd reshuffle.
Those placing between the tenth and fortieth position (plus ties) gain exempt status until the second reshuffle.
Starting the week all players have earned conditional status on the Web.com Tour by playing their way to final qualifying but can still advance their priority…
