PGA Tour adds developmental series in Canada

The 4-tournament Canada Life Series will be played in British Columbia and Ontario in an effort to plug part of the gap from the cancellation of the Mackenzie Tour season

Announced: By the PGA Tour's developmental Mackenzie Tour, a four-tournament series for players who reside in Canada. The Canada Life Series will fill part of a void in the competition calendar this summer when the Mackenzie Tour, the Canadian developmental tour, was canceled this year because of the coronavirus pandemic. The Canada Life Series will consist of two 54-hole tournaments, on Aug. 10-12 and Aug. 17-19, at Bear Mountain Golf & Tennis Resort Community in Langford on Vancouver Island in British Columbia. Then, two tournaments will be staged at TPC Toronto’s Heathlands course in Caledon, Ontario, on Sept. 2-4 and Sept. 9-11. The series, with purses of CDN $50,000 (about $36,300) will be open to any Canadian professional who held status on any of the PGA Tour’s international series – in Canada, Latin America and China – since 2018. Also, six sponsor exemptions will be available in each event for elite amateurs on the Golf Canada national team.
