Golf Canada has announced the qualifying format for the 2022 RBC Canadian Open, June 6-12 at St. George’s Golf and Country Club in Toronto.
A two-stage qualifying process will feature regional qualifying competitions in British Columbia, Ontario, and Quebec, as well as Alberta, which is new for 2022.
Three of four regional qualifier dates and host sites are set with the Quebec qualifier details to be confirmed in the coming weeks.
Each of the four regional qualifiers will consist of 18 holes of stroke-play with the low qualifier at each site receiving an exemption directly into the 2022 RBC Canadian Open field (provided a minimum of 100 competitors participate at each site).
The top 10 per cent of finishers beyond the low qualifier at each regional qualifying competition are eligible to compete at the final qualifying competition on Monday, June 6 at Toronto’s Oakdale Golf and Country Club.
Participation in the final qualifying competition is limited to those competitors receiving requisite exemptions or individuals who have advanced through regional qualifying. The final qualifier will feature 18 holes of stroke play, with a minimum of four spots available for direct entry into the 2022 RBC Canadian Open.
