Golf Canda – Four Canadians earn final exemptions into the RBC Canadian Open via Monday qualifying at Heron Point Golf Links; 26 Canadians to compete at 2019 RBC Canadian Open

HAMILTON, Ont. – James Allenby of Langley, B.C., Thomas DeMarco of LaSalle, Ont., Étienne Brault of Mercier, Que. and JC Deacon of Toronto have all earned entry into the 2019 RBC Canadian Open through Final Qualifying at Heron Point Golf Links in Alberton, Ont.

Allenby was the low qualifier after carding a 4 under par 67. Four birdies on the final six holes helped him qualify for his first RBC Canadian Open. 

“You just have to keep playing,” said Allenby of his four back nine birdies. “I can’t really tell you what it was. Two 30-footers went in and those are always nice. I’ve been putting well all year, so I’m not surprised, but I’m very happy. My mental game has really taken a step up this year, and that will help me get around [Hamilton Golf & Country Club].”

Allenby earned medallist honours at the B.C. Regional Qualifier in early May. He plays on the Mackenzie Tour – PGA TOUR Canada and recently finished T2 at the Canada Life Open in Vancouver.

Amateurs DeMarco and Brault finished T2 with a 1 under par 70 and will be competing in their first RBC Canadian Opens. Their addition to the field brings the number of Canadian amateurs teeing off at Hamilton Golf & Country Club to six – Michael Anderson of Mississauga, Ont. qualified through the Quebec Regional Qualifier, while Team Canada National Amateur Squad members Chris Crisologo (Richmond, B.C.), Joey Savoie (La Prairie, Que.) and Josh Whalen (Napanee, Ont.) were granted exemptions.

Deacon earned the final qualifying spot by shooting an even-par 71. The 37-year old who is head coach of the University of Florida men’s golf team will also be competing in his first RBC Canadian Open. Deacon
