2015 RSM (McGladrey) Classic Monday qualifiers

Gavin Coles, Matthew Atkins, Adam Svensson and Mark Anderson all earned spots in this week's 2015 RSM Classic (formerly The McGladrey Classic) through its Monday qualifier held at Brunswick Country Club in Brunswick, Ga.

Coles and Atkins were the co-medalists in the four-spot, shooting 3-under 67.

Five players shot 68, including Svensson and Anderson, who beat out Wes Homan, Nick Rousey and Steven Smith in the five-for-two playoff for the final spots.

Coles, 47, is a veteran Aussie who has split time between the PGA Tour and Web.com Tour. He didn't play on either tour in 2015, but finished 104th on the Web.com Tour money list in 2014.

Atkins, who turns 25 in December, went to the University of South Carolina. He struggled on the Web.com Tour last year, making just three cuts in 17 starts, with his best finish a T-35 in the United Leasing Championship.

The Canadian Svensson turned pro this year came out with an impressive start on the Mackenzie Tour, getting on the medal stand twice in six starts to finish ninth on the tour's Order of Merit.

Maryland native Mark Anderson, 29, played in seven events in 2015, posting a T-15 finish at the Travelers Championship as part of three cuts made.
