The first leg of the British Columbia Golf Fantasy Golf Tour Challenge is in the books and we have our initial winners as well as the first group of qualifiers for the Grand Prize final event in the PGA TOUR FedEx Cup Championship.

Next up...The Masters.

The contest is easy, fun, flexible...and free. Pick your team in any, or all, of five remaining qualifying tournaments through the summer. If you finish in the top 10% of entrants in any one of them you are immediately qualified for the season-ending Championship playoff.

Emerge victorious there and you will be crowned BC Golf Fantasy Challenge champion. And that title comes with a terrific golf & stay package from Bear Mountain Resort

The top 3 finishers from the first event, the Players Championship, in our BC Golf Fantasy Golf pool were:

1. Brian Howard
2. Riel Mccullough
3. Nathalie Middleton

Those three, along with the entirety of the top 10% from the first week's challenge, are now automatically qualified for the season-ending Grand Prize event.

All those who qualify from each tournament will then pick a team of players from the season-ending Fedex Cup Tour Championship
