Chris Riley, Michael Schoolcraft, Jin Park and John Mallinger all earned spots in the 2015 Shriners Hospitals for Children Open through the Monday qualifier, played at Dragon Ridge Golf Club just outside of Las Vegas.
Riley was the medalist in the field, shooting 8-under 62. Schoolcraft, Park and Mallinger each shot 63, locking out Martin Flores, who was first man out with his 64. This was one of the strongest Monday qualifier fields we'll see all year.

Riley, who turns 42 in December, played twice on the PGA Tour this year, finishing T-56 at the Barbasol Championship and T-66 at the Barracuda Championship, which he won in 2002 for his only PGA Tour title.
Schoolcraft, 23, is an Oklahoma product who played his golf this season on the MacKenzie Tour, where he missed the cut in four of five starts after getting through Q-school with a T-5 finish.
The last two qualifiers are a pair of 36-year-olds who finished just outside of a spot in the Web.com Tour Finals, with Mallinger ending up 78th on the regular-season money list, while Park was 79th.
