Palm Beach, Fla. — Seven Canadians will tee-it-up when the final stage of Q-School begins on Thursday.

The 150 players in the field will hope to secure spots on the 2015 Tour over the course of six days at PGA National’s Champion and Fazio courses.

The overall winner of Q-School earns full status for 2015, while spots 2-10 are awarded status for the first 12 events of the season. Those who finish between 11th and 45th earn entry into the first eight events of 2015, while players finishing 46th or higher earn conditional status.

Representing Canada in the final stage are Victoria’s Corey Renfrew, Vancouver’s Ryan Williams, Montreal’s Beon Yeong Lee, Ted Brown of Peterborough, Ont., Brad Fritsch of Ottawa, as well as Wes Heffernan and Ryan Yip of Calgary.

Fritsch lost his PGA Tour card after finishing outside of the Top 125 by less than one point (0.891) in the 2014 FedEx Cup race. Following an unsuccessful attempt to re-capture his PGA Tour status via the Fall Tour Series a few months ago, he will look to regain his consistency on next year’s Tour by earning a spot this week.
