Canadian David Markle is making his first appearance in the RBC Canadian Open and first PGA TOUR after carding a 5-under 65 in Monday’s qualifier at Heron Point Golf Links.

Jon Mills (68), Victor Ciesielski (69), and Ben Ferguson (69) also qualified.

The 27-year-old Markle and 34-year-old Mills are both natives of Ontario and former golfers at Kent State University. Markle now lives in Orlando, and Mills resides in Pennsylvania.

Mills, a qualifier at The Greenbrier Classic on the PGA TOUR earlier this summer, makes his ninth appearance in the RBC Canadian Open and comes in with two career Web.com Tour victories, including the 2005 Canadian PGA Championship and the 2007 Albertsons Boise Open.

Victor Ciesielski makes his third appearance in the RBC Canadian Open field. The 28-year-old resident of Cambridge, Ontario and former golfer at Virginia Commonwealth made an ace in the second round of the 2008 RBC Canadian Open.

At 39, Ferguson is the elder statesman of the qualifying group. The Australian competed in the 2001 and 2007 RBC Canadian Opens, but missed the cuts in both. After going to q-school and earning his PGA TOUR card for the 2001 season, Ferguson played 30 events and made seven cuts, with a tie for ninth at the Shell Houston Open.
