The 2nd stage of PGA Tour Qualifying is now underway.

Play began Tuesday at just one site, the Redstone Golf Club in Humble, Texas.

Just two Canadians are in play at this site, Yohann Benson of Montreal and Danny Sahl of the Edmonton area (Sherwood Park).

They are just two of 17 Canadians (that includes a couple residents born elsewhere) who are in action this week at 6 different sites across the United States.

Tomorrow Matt McQuillan of Kingston will be the only regional player teeing it up.  He will be playing at Bear Creek in Murietta, California.  He has been staying in the nearby Palm Springs area for the last few weeks playing a Canadian Tour event and practicing for this week’s opportunity. (Update – McQuillan shot 70 in round 1)

Another player with regional ties, Jon Mills, (Belleville, Deep River) has already qualified for Final Stage play by way of his finish on the 2010 Nationwide Tour Money List.

Other Canadians in play at 2nd stage qualifying include:

Cam Burke, Matt Richardson, Ted Brown, Mitch Gillis, Richard T. Lee, Adam Hadwin, Peter Laws, James Love, Ryan Yip, Kent Eger, Adam Speirs, Brennan Webb, David Mackenzie, and Bryan DeCorso.

We’ll update this page as scores roll in from the various locations.
