ST. SIMONS ISLAND, Ga. – Canadian native David Hearn played on the Canadian Tour from 2002-04. In his final year, he finished No. 5 on the Order of Merit.
"The PGA TOUR getting involved with the Canadian Tour is obviously going to be a great thing for the Canadian Tour,” Hearn said. “The PGA TOUR has done a great job with the Web.com Tour and everything that they've really touched -- Champions Tour, the FedExCup. They're doing a lot of really good things. So for them to get involved with the Canadian Tour is really going to help elevate the level of that tour to where it should be.
“It should be a very good developmental tour. It has been for years. It's struggled a little bit in the past couple of years, I know that. But the PGA TOUR coming in, I really hope that it helps push them over the edge and makes them a top developmental tour again."
