Canadians Stephen Ames, Rod Spittle and Jim Rutledge have committed to play the 2016 Pacific Links Bear Mountain Championship in Victoria the week of September 19-25.
The event will feature a $2.5-million U.S. purse, with 81 players competing for a winner’s share of $440,000.
“Canada is a golf-rich country that has consistently cheered for its own through the years at PGA TOUR-sanctioned events,” said tournament director David Skitt.
“The addition of these three players not only adds to the strength of our field, but also to the excitement heading into tournament week, as Canadian golf fans will have genuine passion in supporting Stephen Ames, Rod Spittle and Jim Rutledge,” he added.
All three competitive rounds will be broadcast live by Golf Channel.
