Duncan Stewart aims for a strong finish

2013 10 Duncan Stewart

Duncan Stewart is potentially just four rounds away from getting his hands on a European Tour card.


The Scot enters the European Challenge Tour’s season-ending Dubai Festival City Challenge Tour Grand Final in need of a strong finish to claim one of the 15 cards available.

While everybody in the field has a chance of achieving the feat this week, Duncan Stewart is one of those within touching distance as he sits two places outside the cut-off point in 17th - the highest-placed Scotsman.

The Grantown-on-Spey man is relishing the challenge and is just hoping he can put his fate in his own hands and not have to worry about the performance of others around him in the rankings.

“It might depend on what other people do,” said the 29-year-old. “But I would say I need to finish top six or seven to have a chance.
“I know the course and I've played in all kind of conditions so I've got a slight advantage there." - Duncan Stewart

“I probably know the course better than anybody else that’s played it because I've played here eight times before I even arrived this week. I played two mini-tour events here in the past year and one of those was just a few weeks ago.

“I know the course and I've played in all kind of conditions so I've got a slight advantage there. I just have to go out and play well.

“There’s no reason why I can’t go out here this week and get a high finish. The goal for me for most of the season was just to get this tournament but obviously after Kazakhstan the goals shifted slightly. I’ll be disappointed if I don’t finish top 15 but, in the bigger picture, it’s been a really good season.

Italian Andrea Pavan, a former winner of the Grand Final, sits atop the rankings heading into the season-ender, with Duncan Stewart joined in Dubai by his compatriots Andrew McArthur (26th on rankings) and Jamie McLeary (33rd).
