Mackenzie Tour – PGA TOUR Canada

Kingston, Ontario’s Noah Steele is in a strong position to earn some Mackenzie Tour-PGA TOUR Canada status for 2022 as the circuit plays their final event of the season this week in Victoria, British Columbia.

Steele, still an amateur but expected to turn pro in 2022, is second on the season-long points list as play begins this week at the Reliance Properties DC Bank Open. He trails only two-time winner Callum Davison.

Steele won the Osprey Valley Open in August and finished second to Davision at the Brudenell River Classic. In his only other appearances Steele finish t-10 and t-13, respectively.

The top player on the list earns fully exempt status on the Mackenzie Tour for 2022, while players 2-5 are exempt through to the first reshuffle of the season.

Play concludes Sunday at the Uplands Golf Club.
