MAZATLAN, Mexico – West Vancouver, B.C., native David Rose shot a final-round 70 to claim medalist honours and earn full status on the PGA Tour Latinoamérica in 2016.
The 26-year-old began the day with a two-stroke lead over American William Kropp. Rose finished at 15-under to claim a one-stroke victory over Mexico’s Gerardo Ruiz.
Rose – a former Lynn University Fighting Knight and the 2011 B.C. Amateur champion – becomes the second Canadian in as many weeks to finish atop the leaderboard at PGA Tour Latinoamérica Q-School. He joins Corey Conners of Listowel, Ont., who earned fully exempt status on tour last week in Sebring, Fla.
