Beginning July 13, participants with the lowest scores can qualify to earn a spot in the semi-finals, taking place at Royal Bank Plaza in Toronto on July 24. Five lucky finalists will then have the opportunity to take their best shot at a 60-foot putt on the 18th green at Glen Abbey Golf Club immediately following the final round of the RBC Canadian Open on Sunday, July 26 for their chance to win $100,000.
