Veteran professional golfer Dwayne Pearman has been granted a sponsor’s exception, but two spots are still available to local players to secure their qualification to the main event, starting October 31.
With preparations ongoing at Port Royal Golf Course, the two-day local qualifier will be held October 16 and 17 at Mid Ocean Club, with tee times starting 9am both days.
