Canada’s Darryl James and Ken Tarling both had solid final rounds in the Champions Tour regional qualifying to advance to the final qualifying stage.
James, the 2007 and 2008 PGA of Alberta Champion, began the day in a four-way tie for fifth place and moved up a spot after carding an even par 72.
Tarling, a former Canadian Tour – now PGA Tour Canada – President (1983-1985), shot a 1-under par 71 and finished the week tied for 13th place alongside Trevor Dodds, a native of Namibia who won the Canadian Tour Order of Merit in 1995 and 1996.
Failing to qualify for the final stage were Canadians Remi Bouchard, Michael Dagenais, Mark Rypien and Marc Hurtubise.
The Champions Tour Final Qualifying Stage will take place November 18-21 at Orange County National in Winter Garden, Fla.
