Hall of Fame Member Jim Rempe Withdraws from North American OpenHall of Fame Member Jim Rempe has withdrawn from the tournament citing personal reasons that are keeping him from being able to perform under the grueling tournament format and conditions. On a telephone call, he reported that he was disappointed about not being able to play in the biggest tournament of his life. Rempe hopes to be able to compete in the World Open, another major just six weeks away. Filling Rempe’s spot in the tournament is Keith Bennett. Bennett has played in multiple IPT qualification events. In the North American Open Qualification System, Bennett took third place in two separate events; he was one of only two players to do so in those 25 events.
