ET Final Stage Q-School 2014: Day 4 Cut

18th November 2014

European Tour QS

The 72-hole cut has today been made at the Final Stage European Tour Qualifying School (Q-School) event at the PGA Catalunya Resort in Spain.

The 926 players who entered Q-School had already been whittled down to 156 by the start of Final Stage qualifying.  We are now down to the final 78, all of whom scored -1 or better over the first four days.

The final 36-holes will now take place on the 7,333 yard, Par 72 Stadium Course, starting tomorrow.

To recap once play is complete on Thursday:-
– the top 25 players (and ties) are eligible for Cat. 15 European Tour and Cat. 5 Challenge Tour membership.
– those that made the cut are eligible for Cat. 20 European Tour and Cat. 9 Challenge Tour membership.
– Players who failed to make the cut will be eligible for Category 15 membership of the Challenge Tour.

So let’s have a look at how the 51 GB&I players have got on so far.  I have listed each player below.  The colour, as you see from the Notes, signifies where they entered the Q-School process.

Comments
– 28 out of the 51 GB&I players (55%) who started the Final Q-School event on Saturday have made the cut.
– Based on point of entry those who made the cut came from – Final Stage 15, Second Stage 9 and First Stage 4. 
– However, just 9 of the 28 are inside the important Top 25.
– After a slow start Matt Ford (ENG) has recorded three superb rounds.  Today he recorded his second eagle and had a bogey free round on the Stadium Course.
Tom Murray (ENG) is well placed on -8 and T12 to complete the full Q-School journey as a First Stage entrant.
Garrick Porteous (ENG) has again showed great mental strength.  To make the cut on -2 after a Rd. 1 80 (+8) is impressive.  He was also +4 after 5 holes today before recovering to shoot 69 (-1)
Gareth Maybin (NI) 65, Phillip Archer (ENG) 67, Dave Coupland (ENG) 68, Duncan Stewart (SCO) 68 Gary Lockerbie (ENG) 69 also all played their way into the Cut today.

Other News
– 17 year old Renato Paratore’s (ITA) decision to turn Pro ahead of the Final Q-School is looking inspired.
– Emilio Cuartero Blanco (SPA) is the last Amateur still competing.
– John Hahn’s (USA) 58 (-12) Rd. 4 on the Tour Course saw him rise 92 places and make the cut in T12 (-8)
