After qualifying for a Canadian Tour card last week, my first two events will come next month in Mexico, beginning with the Corona Mexican PGA Championship. The event is held in Mazitlan, Mexico and following that, I will travel to Puerto Vallarta for the Riviera Niyarit Classic.
Golf stars Steve Stricker, Mike Weir, Arron Oberholser and Will MacKenzie, have used the Canadian Tour as a launching platform to get to the PGA Tour. The Canadian Tour is managed and set-up similar to PGA and Nationwide Tour stops and provide players direct opportunities to play for spots in the Nationwide Wayne Gretzky Invitational and PGA Tour's Canadian Open. As a member of the International Federation of PGA Tours, the Canadian Tour receives world ranking points for every event, allowing players to achieve a world ranking and compete on other tours around the world.
This year has the potential to provide new opportunities and a greater competitive experience. I'm very excited to begin battling with very skilled players on great courses and get myself "in the hunt" to win a Canadian PGA Tour event.
