DOTHAN, Alabama — It was a long day for Jacob Bridgeman, an early wake-up call so he could tee off at 7 a.m. and finish his third round. Then came a break and an additional 18 holes, and the Clemson senior handled everything perfectly. After polishing off a third-round 65, Bridgeman fired a 5-under 67 over his final 18 holes as expected rain never materialized and he won the PGA TOUR Canada Qualifying Tournament by two shots over playing partner Bryce Hendrix. Bridgeman who will close his college career this spring and then turn pro is exempt into every 2022 PGA TOUR Canada tournament by virtue of his victory.
Besides France’s Guillaume Fanonnel and Canada’s Henry Lee, the only other international players to earn status were Canada’s Eric Flockhart and Belgium’s Giovanni Tadiotto (tied for 25th) and Puerto Rico’s Chris Nido (tied for 29th). Australian amateur Jordan Doull finished a stroke outside the final number to qualify.
