NOTES:The PGA Tour Canada travels to Ontario this week for The Great Waterway
Classic in Kingston. All eight tournament winners from 2014 are in the field, including money leader and 2-time winner Joel Dahmen.

Dahmen currently leads the money list by more than $21,000 over Timothy Madigan. Dahmen is the only player that has recorded four top-5 finishes this season.

The top five players on the Order of Merit will graduate to the Web.com Tour in 2015. The top money winner will receive fully exempt status for 2015, with players finishing second to fifth earning highly placed status. Players finishing sixth through 10th will receive an exemption into the final stage of Web.com Tour Q-School, while players finishing 11th to 20th will be exempt into the second stage.

Last year, Hugo Leon carded rounds of 68-64-67-67 to claim a 1-stroke victory over Brandon Harkins. Harkins raced up the leaderboard with a course record-tying 10-under 62 to grab the clubhouse lead before Leon birdied two of his last three holes to finish a stroke ahead of Harkins at 22-under-par 266.

In 2012, Eugene Wong fired a 6-under 65 in the final round to come from behind and win. Wong, who also won the Canadian Tour Championship two weeks prior, ended his second tour win at 18-under-par 266.

The PGA Tour Canada remains in Ontario next week for the Wildfire Invitational in Peterborough, where Mark Hubbard won the 2013 title.
