Last year it was a close call, but I had a really good feeling this year I was going to get one.

That good feeling suddenly came to fruition at the season-opening Canada Life Open, when thanks, but no thanks suddenly became wed love to have you.

A seven-year veteran of Mackenzie Tour-PGA TOUR Canada, the 34-year-old entered this season with no status and his career officially on life support.

He earned starts in the first six events last year on PGA TOUR Latinoamerica but began the 2019 campaign still in search of a home.
