NOTES:
The PGA Tour Canada travels to Ontario this week for The Great Waterway Classic in Morrisburg. All five tournament winners from 2013 are in the field -- Riley Wheeldon, Wil Collins, Joe Panzeri, Stephen Gangluff and Carlos Sainz, Jr.

Wheeldon currently leads the money list by $3,444 over Collins. Wheeldon, Collins and Nick Taylor are the only three players on tour with two top-five finishes this season.

The top five players on the Order of Merit will graduate to the Web.com Tour in 2014. The top money winner will receive fully exempt status for 2014, 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, 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 inaugural Wildfire Invitational in Peterborough.
