Canadian Tour flying under radar
BY Bruce Young | 08 Jul 2012
While the focus of attention on Australian male golfers competing on golfing circuits worldwide throughout the year is essentially on the likes of the PGA, Web.Com, European, Asian, Japan and OneAsia Tours, those who ply their trade on the Canadian Tour sneak under the radar to a large extent.
Eleven events between June and November will be played on that Tour and while the average purse is around $150,000 Canadian dollars, the Tour has regularly attracted several Australians chasing tournament competition with a view to eventually taking their games south across the border to Web.com and PGA Tours.
In 2012 Jason Scrivener, Matt Jager, Tarquin McManus, Clint Rice, Craig Hocknull, Dean Meagher and New Zealander Jae An are Australasians who have teed it up to date.
Jager, a former Australian and New Zealand amateur champion, has fared the best to date finishing 5th in one of the early events and is placed 19th on the money list after three official events.
