Meet the Qualifiers

It was a crazy final hour at the fourth Mackenzie Tour – PGA TOUR Canada Qualifying Tournament during Friday’s final round. It was a day with plenty of twists and turns. Top players were playing on both nines of the Soboba Springs Golf Club, and no one really knew who was winning as scores slowly trickled in. When Jeffrey Kang rolled in a 30-foot eagle putt on his 72nd hole, he looked relieved, assuming he had at least secured his 2021 playing privileges. He had no idea that putt had won him the tournament. As the champion, the former University of Southern California golfer moves alongside Colombia’s Camilo Aguado, Costa Rica’s Luis Gagne and American Keenan Huskey as medalists at Qualifying Tournaments this season. Kang, who has previous experience on the Mackenzie Tour, PGA TOUR Series-China and the Korn Ferry Tour, joins Joseph Harrison, David Longmire, Jeffrey Swegle, Shintaro Ban and George Markham as exempt players emerging from the Soboba Springs event. While the latter five will have status through the first half of the season, their status after that based on their first-half-season performance, Kang is free to play in every 2021 tournament, the major benefit the medalist earns. An additional 20 players secured conditional status this season by finishing inside the top 25. The Tour’s fifth Qualifying Tournament is next week, starting Tuesday, March 30, at The Wigwam in the Phoenix, Arizona, suburb of Litchfield Park. Here are capsules on the six qualifiers from earlier this week.
