Four Canadians join field for final stage of Q-School

Four more Canucks have advanced to the final stage of Tour Q-School on Friday, playing at two locations in the U.S.

Lucas Kim was the low scorer for the Canadians, carding 11-under thru 72 holes to finish alone in third place at the Plantation Preserve Golf Course & Club in Plantation, Fla. Just sneaking inside the cut line was Ben Silverman of Thornhill, Ont., who posted a 3-under score to finish T20.

In California, Calgary’s Ryan Yip finished at 8-under (69-69-70-72) to finish in a tie for fifth. Not far behind was Matt McQuillan of Kingston, Ont., who carded a total score of 5-under (69-71-70-73) to finish T15.

The foursome will join Mackenzie Hughes (Dundas, Ont.), Chris Ross (Dundas, Ont.), Devin Carrey (Burnaby, B.C.) and Cam Burke (New Hamburg, Ont.) as the eight Canadians to advance from stage II to the final stage of Qualifying School from Dec. 10–13 at PGA National Resort and Spa in Palm Beach Gardens, Fla.

Team Canada Young Pro Squad members Albin Choi (Toronto) and Adam Svensson (Surrey, B.C.) had already punched their tickets to the final stage, along with Kevin Spooner (Vancouver), Eugene Wong (Vancouver), Wilson Bateman (Edmonton) and Justin Shin (Pitt Meadows, B.C.).

Taylor Pendrith (Richmond Hill, Ont.)—also on the Young Pro Squad—earned status already by finishing inside the top-five on the Mackenzie Tour-PGA TOUR Canada.

Similar to all events on the Tour schedule, the finals will be contested over 72 holes.

All players who make it to the final stage of the Tour Qualifying Tournament will earn at least conditional status on Tour in 2016.
