    (May 9, 2014 - Courtenay, BC) - Standing in his final fairway of the day at 3-under par for the tournament, Langley, British Columbia’s Adam Cornelson knew he needed a strong finish to lock up exempt status and avoid a playoff. He did exactly that, striping an approach to 10 feet and burying the putt to ensure a return to PGA TOUR Canada for his fourth season.

    “That was one of the most satisfying putts of my life,” said Cornelson. “When the chips were down and I had to birdie the last hole, I did it. I’ll hold this one in my memory for a long time.”

    The 26-year old finished 81st on the Order of Merit last year, and admitted it ‘stung’ to lose his card. But with a renewed focus on and some solid results to show for – the University of New Orleans grad won the Vancouver Golf Tour’s Chilliwack Open by 10 shots last week – Cornelson said he’s thrilled to be returning on TOUR this for 2014. 

    “Pretty much my whole year has been focused on this event, and sometimes that can be difficult if you’re looking ahead too much. I can finally exhale. This feels really good.”
