HOWEY-IN-THE-HILLS, Florida — After a long week of competition at the PGA TOUR Canada Qualifying event at Mission Inn Resort and Club, Austin Hitt was able to hold on to his commanding first-round lead to remain on top of the leaderboard the rest of the week, closing his final round with a 5-under 67 to finish 22-under for the week and clinch the lone exempt membership spot for the 2022 season.
“This morning we came back out to a nice surprise. It was playing really tough, so any shot you hit off line went way off line, but I was able to pull it off,” said Hitt, who lives just 45 minutes away in Longwood, Florida. “I put a lot of pressure going into the week. I really wanted to get status, but most importantly full status, so I can kind of take my time, and if I need to take a week off, I can.”
