EUROPEAN TOUR | Q-SCHOOL

Four Scots, including 2014 Amateur champion Bradley Neil, have made the cut at the Final Stage of European Tour Q-School – but all have serious work to do if they are to earn their cards for the 2017 season.


Scott Henry, David Law, Ross Kellett and Bradley Neil (above) have all made it through to the final two rounds at PGA Catalunya but Craig Lee, Grant Forrest and Peter Whiteford have all missed out.

There were other big name casualties, too. As well as Lee, who finished 112th in last season's Race to Dubai, six-time European Tour Alvaro Quiros failed to make it through, as did five-time winner Brett Rumford, who withdrew after being nine-over-par through three rounds.

Henry (above) and Law are currently the leading Scots, both sitting T32 on three-under-par. Law was as low as seven-under-par after 54 holes but struggled to a four-over-par 76 on the Stadium Course, which saw him slip from inside the top five.

Law's fellow Cardinal Golf ambassador Kellett sits two shots further back on one-under-par after recording a level par 72.

Meanwhile, it was a round to forget for Blairgowrie’s Bradley Neil. Entering the fourth round on five-under-par and within the top 15, the 20-year-old went five-over-par on the Stadium Course and only just snuck into the final two rounds on the cut mark, which was level par.

European Tour Qualifying School Final Stage - Day Four

Englishman Nathan Kimsey has a three-shot lead after a stunning nine-under-par 61 on the Tour Course.

He leads by three strokes from Edoardo Molinari (above), Robert Coles, Richard McEvoy and Jeff Winther. Other notable names also currently sat in the card earning spots are Tom Lewis, Y.E. Yang and Eddie Pepperell.

And the incentive to earn a European Tour card has never been greater after today's Access List announcement, which increases the probability of Challenge Tour and Q-School graduates retaining their status for the following season.
