The PC Financial Open, which tees off tomorrow at the Point Grey Golf and Country Club in Vancouver, is the first event on the 2015 PGA Tour Canada.

In an interview with NewsDay Sport, the Florida-based golfer confirmed his participation in Canada, saying he was hopeful it would be a springboard to better opportunities.

“I have been going through some swing changes and I am looking to use this tournament as a tune-up and hopefully a springboard to get me going for the rest of the season. I would definitely like to get some Web.com starts and PGA tour starts next season,” he said.

Mauchaza is part of a new generation of Zimbabwean golfers angling for a move up the world golfing rankings and his participation in Canada is one step towards his goal of one day playing on the lucrative US PGA Tour.

The 27 year-old former St Georges’ College student earned his place in this week’s field by virtue of his conditional status on the Web.com Tour which is the main feeder tour to the money spinning US PGA Tour.

Mauchaza, who has been based in the US since 2005, attended Towson University in Maryland, where he excelled in the golf team, being named the school’s Male Athlete of the Year as a senior.

He is a former number one junior golfer in the country and represented Zimbabwe in the Orange Bowl Junior Golf Championship in Miami and later the prestigious Junior Golf World Cup in 2005.

In 2011, Mauchaza had an early taste of US PGA Tour golf when he qualified for the Wyndham Championship in Greensboro, North Carolina less than a month after turning pro.

Meanwhile, Zimbabwean Mark McNulty had a solid week in Indianapolis and finished in a share of ninth at the Senior PGA Championship played out at French Lick, Indiana.

The Bindura-born veteran golfer, who now plays on the Champions Tour carded rounds of 77, 74, 70 and 69 to secure a top 10 finish in the major championship for the over-50 ranks.
