Canada’s Brad Fritsch rallies to finish T8 at Web Tour Qualifying

Brad Fritsch

Three of four Canadians were able to improve their Web.com Tour status on Sunday’s final round of Qualifying at Whirlwind Golf Club in Chandler, Ariz.

The Canadian quartet were led by Manotick, Ont., native Brad Fritsch, who marched inside the top 10 on the heels of a 10-under 62 performance. After opening the 72-hole event with an even-par 72, Fritsch rallied to finish inside the top 10 (72-66-64-62), earning 12 guaranteed starts next season.

Fellow countrymen Michael Gligic (Burlington, Ont.) and Albin Choi (Toronto, Ont.) finished inside the top 40, earning eight guaranteed starts next season.

Vancouver’s Seann Harlingten ended up T74 at 14 under—he’ll maintain his conditional status earned by reaching the final stage.

Medalist Danny Walker secured fully exempt Web.com Tour status after finishing at 27 under par for a one-stroke victory.

Walker, who finished seventh on the Mackenzie Tour – PGA TOUR Canada Order of Merit this year, led the field in birdies with 33, including nine on the final day. Despite the field’s scoring average being better on the Devil’s Claw course, Walker shot one stroke better on the Cattail course over the two days.

“I set my goal to not make a bogey today because I made a couple in the first few rounds,” said Walker. “I wanted to have a clean card because there are enough birdie holes out there that if I stayed bogey-free I knew I’d make some birdies and be in good shape.
