Oklahoma State senior Brendon Jelley goes into the final round of a Mackenzie Tour qualifier today at Eaglebrook GC in Lakeland, Fla., as the low amateur and with a good chance to earn at least some status on the Canada-based tour which is run by the PGA Tour.
Jelley was 13-under par and tied for fifth going into the final 18 holes. Live scoring is here. The tour offers five exemptions into the 2019 Web.com Tour for the top five money winners on the 2018 Mackenzie Tour.
Jelley’s performance in preparing for his professional career underscores the depth on this current OSU team, in which players such as himself, 2016 Big 12 champion Statton Nolen, plus fellow Oklahomans Hayden Wood, Austin Eckroat and Nick Heinen, a lineup that could win many tournaments, can’t dent the postseason card.
In the field are 132 players, competing for membership on the Mackenzie Tour – PGA TOUR Canada. Below is a breakdown of the status available at each site:
|Medalist||Exempt for 2018 season|
|2nd through 5th (no ties)||Exempt for first eight events and subject to second re-shuffle|
|6th through 16th (no ties)||Exempt for first four events and subject to first re-shuffle|
|17th through 40th (plus ties)||Conditional status|
