The web.com Tour Finals roll into Greater Cleveland for the second year, as Canterbury Golf Club hosts the 2017 DAP Championship starting this Thursday, September 21st.
Silver Lake native Ryan Armour is in the field and should be free-wheeling it around Canterbury. Armour has already secured his playing privileges on the PGA Tour for the 2018 season by finishing solo second at the Nationwide Children’s Hospital Championship in Columbus three weeks ago.
Fans will see some great golf, as there are 17 former PGA TOUR winners in the DAP Championship field who have combined for 42 PGA TOUR wins: Stuart Appleby (9); Hunter Mahan (6 including the 2010 Bridgestone Invitational); Jonathan Byrd (5); Ben Crane (5); Angel Cabrera (3 including the Masters and U.S. Open); Johnson Wagner (3); and Eric Axley, Charlie Beljan, Ken Duke, Alex Cejka, Derek Ernst, Chesson Hadley, Matt Jones, Troy Merritt, Ted Potter Jr., Dicky Pride, and Andres Romero (1 ea).
Fans can check out all the action Thursday through Sunday by purchasing tickets online or at the gate: $10 single day, $23 for the week. Parking is free at the Tri-C East Campus at the corner of Harvard and Richmond, with a shuttle offering frequent trips directly to the spectator entrance on Halburton Road.
