The 2015 Travelers Championship Monday qualifier was played at Crestview Country Club, with the top four finishers in the 18-hole event moving on to compete in the full-field event at TPC River Highlands in Cromwell, Conn.
It was a fairly tough scoring day on the par-72 course, with Canadian Jean-Philip Cornellier coming out as the medalist with 4-under 68. Behind him, six players tied with 69, forcing a six-for-three playoff. In the end, Brad Adamonis, JunHak Lee and local pro David Pastore survived into the former Greater Hartford Open. Josh Teater, Jeb Buchanan and Matt Smith were left without a spot in the field.
Adamonis, 42, last played on the PGA Tour at the 2013 Greenbrier Classic, where he was a MDF victim at Old White TPC.
The 23-year-old Pastore graduated in May 2014 from the University of Virginia and has been trying to Monday qualify his way into events. He did so for the Web.com Tour's United Leasing Championship, missing the cut, and the PC Financial Open on the Mackenzie Tour (formerly PGA Tour Canada), where he finished T-22.
Lee is 28 and has struggled to find any professional footing, last playing on the Web.com Tour in 2012, missing the cut at the Price Cutter Charity Championship.
Jean-Philip Cornellier, who turned pro in 2014, has played in two Mackenzie Tour events this season and missed the cut in both, with a scoring average of 72.5.
