The Hainan Open delivered Forrest’s third runner-up finish of a superb season in which he has banked €112,677.

The Craigielaw golfer will be joined in graduating to the main tour by Liam Johnston – who defeated him in the final of the Andalucia Costa del Sol Match Play 9 in May – with David Law also well positioned going into the final two events of the year.
