Six Canadians qualify for PGA TOUR Lationamérica statusWritten by Golf Canada
The remaining two of four PGA TOUR Latinoamérica Qualifying Tournaments came to a close on Friday in Argentina and Colombia, with three more Canadians earning status in 2017.
In total, six Canadians have earned status on the PGA TOUR Latinoamérica by way of Q-school. The Canucks were led by Nova Scotia’s Ally Tidcombe, who finished solo fourth at the Argentina event for the strongest finish by a Canadian. With the result, Tidcombe is exempt through the first half of the season (subject to reshuffle for second half).
Also finishing inside the top-10 was Devin Carrey of Burnaby, B.C., who’s 7th place result at the Mexico event gives him a ticket to join Tidcombe with status for the first half of 2017. The remaining four countrymen earned conditional status by finishing inside the top-30 at their respective events. Below is the full list of Canadians to earn status:
- Ally Tidcombe (exempt through first half)
- Devin Carrey (exempt through first half)
- Patrick Williams (conditional status)
- David Rose (conditional status)
- Matt Hill (conditional status)
- Russell Budd (conditional status)
Canada has seen recent success on the PGA TOUR Latinoamérica, with Team Canada Young Pro Squad member Corey Conners (Listowel, Ont.) finishing sixth on the 2016 money list.
