Three Kent State golfers will be in the field for the PGA Tour's RBC Canadian Open later this week, held at Glen Abbey Golf Club.
Senior Corey Connors is the lone active Golden Flash and one of only four amateurs in the field. He's currently Canada's top-ranked golfer (No. 41 in the world World Amateur Golf Rankings). Connors will tee off at 2:15 p.m. on Thursday and at 9 a.m. on Friday.
He'll be joined by KSU 2012 grad Mackenzie Hughes and '05 grad Peter Laws. Hughes made his PGA Tour debut in this tournament a year ago. He has an 8:50 a.m. tee time on Thursday.
Laws was recently named an assistant coach at Iowa State. He's set to tee off at 1:45 p.m. on Thursday and at 8:30 a.m. on Friday.
