Doug LaBelle II and Mark Hubbard shared medalist honors with a 5-under 67 while Jason Gore and Jim Renner both fired rounds 4-under 68 in the Open Monday qualifier held at the Bayonet and Black Horse course in Seaside, Calif.

LaBelle, a 38-year-old Scottsdale resident, played 23 events on the PGA TOUR in 2013 and made 14 cuts -- including a tie for 18th at the FedEx St. Jude Classic. He earned his way onto the PGA TOUR after finishing inside The 25 (24th) on the Tour in 2012.

Hubbard, a 24-year-old native of San Jose, Calif., qualified for the Tour in 2014 after finishing inside the top five on PGA TOUR Canada in 2013. He won The Wildfire Invitational presented by PC Financial.

The 39-year-old Gore, also a Californian, enters Thursday's Open opening round with the most credentials among the qualifiers -- having won once on the PGA TOUR (2005 84 Lumber Classic) and seven times on the Tour. His win on TOUR in 2005 and three times on the Tour that year catapulted him from No. 668 to No. 88 in the Official World Golf Ranking by year's end.

Renner, a 30-year-old Bostonian, returns to the 2013-14 PGA TOUR after finishing 17th in the Regular Season money list on Tour this past season. The Johnson and Wales grad had four top tens on Tour in 2013. In his rookie PGA TOUR season in 2011, he tied for fourth at the Sanderson Farms Championship and finished fifth at the Reno Tahoe Open.
