Other notable players include 2013 PGA Championship of Canada winner Bryn Parry, former PGA Tour player Ray Stewart and 2012 Chilliwack Men’s Open defending champion, Tyler Pitt.
“We have an exceptional field of players this year” said Chilliwack Golf Club’s General Manager, Bryan Ewart. “Whenever you have a large contingent of high level pros like this, the fans are always in for a treat. We look forward to a great competition this weekend.”
“We are extremely excited to have Adam come home and support our Tour (VGT) where we are proud to say he had his first three Professional Wins” stated VGT Commissioner Fraser Mulholland. “With Bryn and Adam’s games firing on all cylinders and Chilliwack’s own marquee pros Brad Clapp (’12 PGA of BC and ’12 PGA Assistant’s Champ) and Jared Rempel ready for the challenge, this weekend will no doubt be a battle to the last hole to decide who’s crowned the ’13 Chilliwack Open Champion”!
