Fourteen PGA EuroPro Tour players past and present have made it through to the final stage of European Tour Q School after a testing few days across Spain.
Daniel Young was the first to progress at Desert Springs Resort where the Kingsbarns Pro Academy golfer was on familiar ground after tieing for sixth just a week ago at Tour Championships in Almeria. He comfortably sailed through tied seventh on two under with his best round being a 67 (-5) on the opening day. Young finished ninth in the PGA EuroPro Tour order of merit this season including a win at Macdonald Spey Valley.
Jonathan Caldwell just missed out on a top-five spot on the Tour this season and he had no trouble in continuing on from a good season at Club de Bonmont where the final round was completed today after play was suspended overnight.
The Clandeyboye Golf Club man finished third after rounds of 70, 71, 69 and 69. Former PGA EuroPro Tour player Minkyu Kim finished second progressing after signing for 68, 70, 72 and 68.
Also at Club de Bonmont, last year’s order of merit winner Dave Coupland progressed after knocks of 69, 72, 68 and 75 to take his place at the final stage.
Jonathan Thomson put together a final round of 68 (-4) to qualify along with Will Enefer who came close a couple of times in the main PGA EuroPro Tour season with two second-place finishes.
Tom Gandy has blossomed as the season went on and that fine form continued at Alenda Golf qualifying third after days of 70, 73, 70 and 69 with fifteen birdies over the four rounds.
David Dixon who won The Matchroom Sport Championship back in May and Jordan Wrisdale who moved up from the PGA EuroPro Tour last season tied for fourth to qualify for the finals.
Ben Ferguson and Niall Kearney both also made their way through at Alenda Golf to take on the last stage. Ferguson another one finding his feet as the season went on finishing in the top 25 on four occasions in his last six tournaments of the PGA EuroPro Tour season. Dan Gavins who last featured in 2018 on Tour tied with Kearney to go through.
Finally, Gary King and Marcus Armitage who have five Tour wins between them made it through to the last stage at Las Colinas. King going deep in his opening round for 65 to give him a big early boost. Meanwhile, Armitage going through on 72, 73, 70 and 68.
All fourteen will form part of the European Tour Qualifying School final stage field at Lumine Golf Club next week where 25 European Tour cards await for those who make the grade.
The Tour wishes all players the best of luck in the next stage of their journey.
