2016 Safeway Open Monday qualifiers

Gunner Wiebe, Michael Hebert, Ted Purdy and Joseph Bramlett all earned spots in the 2016 Safeway Open through the Monday qualifier on the Bayonet Course at Bayonet and Black Horse in Seaside, Calif.

Wiebe, who is the son of Senior British Open winner Mark Wiebe, was the medalist with 9-under 63 to beat Hebert and Purdy, who tied for second together, by four shots.

Bramlett and Matt Marshall finished tied for fourth place at 68 and went into a playoff for the final spot, which Bramlett earned.

Wiebe played once on the Web.com Tour last year, missing the cut in the BMW Charity Pro-Am in South Carolina. The 27-year-old went to the University of San Diego and has played on PGA Tour Latinoamerica.

Hebert, who will turn 26 in December, played the most recent season on the Web.com Tour, finishing 100th on the money list for conditional status for this coming season. The Florida native graduated from Auburn in 2013.

Ted Purdy has been playing pro golf for decades, with the 43-year-old playing nine events last season, just making three cuts.

Bramlett, a Stanford product, had a PGA Tour card and in 2016 made a comeback after two years away from professional golf with an injury. He missed two of three cuts on the Web.com Tour.
