Four Canadians will be regularly playing on the PGA Tour next year, with more possible through qualifying school.
The latest Canadian to join the tour is David Hearn of Brantford, Ont., who shot a one-under 71 in Sunday’s final round at the Nationwide Tour Championship in Charleston, S.C., where he finished fourth.
That vaulted Hearn, 31, from 27th place to 21st on the Nationwide Tour money list after finishing in the top five twice in the final three events of the season. The top 25 on the money list earn their PGA Tour cards.
Hearn will join Mike Weir, Stephen Ames and Graham DeLaet as Canadian regulars on the PGA Tour, after playing there in 2005.
Jon Mills of Belleville, Ont., who played on the PGA Tour in 2006 and 2008, tied for 38th at the Nationwide Tour Championship and finished out of the top 25 in 33rd place on the money list.
