Bath, ON (August 12, 2014) – The Canadian Junior Golf Association (CJGA), host organization for The Great Waterway Classic, is pleased to announce the selection of the sponsor exemptions into this year’s event.
Stuart Anderson (Strathmore, Alberta), Jon Mills (Oshawa, Ontario) and Brad Revell (Kingston, Ontario) were extended an exemption to participate in this year’s event, set to take place August 21-24 at Loyalist Golf & Country Club in Bath, ON.
“We are delighted to reward three outstanding individuals with the opportunity to participate in this year’s event,” said Tournament Director Brad Parkins. “We had an extremely accomplished list of players reaching out to us, and we would like to thank each and every one of them for their interest in our event. It is a difficult task, but we are very pleased with the individuals we selected.”
Anderson, 36, has seen much success on PGA TOUR Canada in the past recording wins in 2009 and 2011. Anderson also has past ties with the CJGA, as he was formerly the captain of CJGA Team Canada West in the Canada Cup.
Mills, 36, is a graduate of Kent State University and had a long career on the PGA Tour after turning pro in 2002. Mills recorded four top-25 finishes on the PGA TOUR in 2008 and has two career victories on the Web.com Tour.
Revell, 27, is a two-time Ontario Junior Boys’ Champion, and his play on the Mandarin Tour this season earned him an exemption into The Great Waterway Classic. In his last Mandarin Tour event, Revell shot a round of 64 (-7) to finish T-7 and will look to build on this finish at Loyalist Golf & Country Club.
