Canadian Tour Q-School Underway

The Fall Qualifying School for the Canadian Tour gets started started on Tuesday in Burlington and it could be the opportunity of a lifetime for the participants.

With the possibility of an upcoming deal that could see the Canadian Tour acquired by the PGA Tour, the successful candidates from this week could be stepping on to a tour with a very promising future and plenty of potential benefits.  The PGA Tour’s Board of Director’s will meet in a couple weeks to finalize a decision on the Canadian Tour acquisition.

In the meantime 66 golfers will get the start at Crosswinds Golf Club in Burlington in pursuit of 15 full and 15 non-exempt cards for the 2013 season.

Among those in the field will be four players from eastern Ontario including three from the Ottawa region and one from Kingston.

The Ottawa-based players include Ryan Ellis, Andrew Jensen, and Jeremiah Shields.  Jensen, 28, is a former member of the Canadian Tour having gained a full card at the 2007 Fall Q-School.

Brad Boyle is the Kingstonian in pursuit of his Canadian Tour card.  The recent Indiana University of Pennsylvania graduate turned pro earlier in September at The Great Waterway Classic.  The Sponsor’s Exemption made the cut there and finished in a tie for 43rd place.
