Bradley Neil through to Q-School finale

2016 11 Bradley Neil
• Bradley Neil among five Scottish qualifiers from Q-School
• Grant Forrest, Ross Kellett and Peter Whiteford also through
• David Law won the Second Stage event at Panoramica


Bradley Neil shot a fantastic five-under-par 66 to rocket up 17 places and secure his spot in the Final Stage of European Tour Q-School.

The 20-year-old, who won the 2014 Amateur Championship, has struggled since turning professional and admitted to earlier this year that he’d lost a lot of confidence.

But he certainly showed plenty of it under the intense Q-School pressure at Las Colinas, firing the second lowest round of the day to finish in a tie for ninth with a five-under-par total and securing qualification to the Final Stage, which begins on Saturday.

Twenty-one Scottish golfers were involved in the Second Stage of Q-School but only another four players have managed to join Bradley Neil at PGA Catalunya.

One of those was Craigielaw man Grant Forrest (above) – also playing at Las Colinas – who closed with a four-under-par 67 to finish alone in fifth on eight-under-par.

Peter Whiteford was the last of the three qualifiers from Las Colinas, posting four-under-par to finish T13 as he looks to regain a European Tour card that he held for five consecutive seasons from 2010-14.

The final two Scottish qualifiers came at Lumine Golf & Beach Club in David Law (above) and Ross Kellett, both of who are supported by the Paul Lawrie Golf Centre and wear apparel from the 1999 Open champion’s Cardinal Golf brand.

Law won the event in style, posting a one-under-par 70 in the final round to finish on 12-under-par, while Kellett was two shots behind, finishing T3 on ten-under-par.
