The PGA Tour Canada remains in Ontario for the second week in a row for the inaugural Wildfire Invitational in Peterborough. All six tournament winners from 2013 are in the field -- Riley Wheeldon, Wil Collins, Joe Panzeri, Hugo Leon, Stephen Gangluff and Carlos Sainz, Jr.

Wheeldon currently leads the money list by $230 over Collins. Wheeldon, Collins, Panzeri and Nick Taylor are the only players on tour with two top-5 finishes this season.

The top five players on the Order of Merit will graduate to the 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 Tour Q-School, while players finishing 11th to 20th will be exempt into the second stage.

The PGA Tour Canada travels to Nova Scotia next week for the inaugural Cape Breton Celtic Classic.
