2012 Syncrude Boreal Open presented by AECON starts tomorrow... tournament preview here
received a sponsor's exemption into last week's ATB Financial Classic presented by TELUS and proved he deserved it, shooting rounds of 68-71-65-70 to finish tied for eighth. The top-10 not only gives Hill a spot in this week's Syncrude Boreal Open presented by AECON, it gives the 23-year old from Sarnia, ON a unique opportunity to earn full status for the Canadian Tour. If Hill can earn the equivalent of 50th on last year's Order of Merit - $11,715 - he can earn a full exemption for the remainder of the Canadian Tour season. His earnings of $4,900 last week put him $6,815 short of that goal. A finish of solo fourth or better this week would put him over the top.
