NOTES:
The PGA Tour Canada remains in Ontario for the third week in a row for the Wildfire Invitational in Peterborough. All nine tournament winners from 2014 are in the field, including 2-time winner and money leader Joel Dahmen.

Dahmen currently leads the money list by more than $20,000 over Timothy Madigan. Dahmen is the only 2-time winner on tour this season and is the only player with four top-5 finishes.

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.

The PGA Tour Canada travels to Nova Scotia next week for the Cape Breton Celtic Classic, where Mackenzie Hughes won in 2013.
