The Great Waterway Classic brings the excitement of PGA TOUR Canada to the greater Kingston area once again this summer as 156 tour professionals will tee it up at Loyalist Golf & Country Club, vying for a piece of the$175,000 purse.
PGA TOUR Canada is a series of tournaments played across Canada each summer, where tomorrow’s stars begin the path to the PGA TOUR. The leading five money winners at the end of each season earn status on the Web.com Tour for the following season.
In addition to the top five players on the Order of Merit earning status on the Web.com Tour for 2016, players 6-10 will once again earn an exemption into the final stage of the Web.com Tour Qualifying Tournament, with players 11-20 gaining direct entry into the second stage. Players competing on PGA TOUR Canada will look to follow in the footsteps of Abbotsford, B.C.’s Nick Taylor, who finished 7th on the 2013 Order of Merit, then earned his PGA TOUR card through the Web.com Tour before entering the PGA TOUR winner’s circle at the 2014 Sanderson Farms Championship.
