European Tour Q-School 2015 – Second Stage Results

9th November 2015

The Second Stage European Tour Qualifying School events were completed today after four days of intense competition.

267 players competed across four courses in Spain – El Saler, Las Colinas, Lumine and Panoramica – with a total of 73 players progressing to next week’s Final Stage Q-School event.

104 players from Great Britain & Ireland (GB&I) were in the Second Stage Field.  25 were successful and they now move onto the six-round Final Stage competition that will take place at the PGA Catalunya Resort in Gerona between 14th-19th November.

Listed below are the complete Second Stage results for all of the GB&I players: –

Campo de Golf El Saler – 7,057 yards, Par 72

7 GB&I players out of a starting 26 qualified at El Saler.  Devon’s Walker Cup star Jimmy Mullen (-16) was medalist by 4-shots once again demonstrating his ability to rise to the big occasion.  Yorkshire’s Jordan Wrisdale who has only recently turned Pro qualified comfortably in T5.  Birthday boy Jordan Smith (23 today) and Josh Loughrey, who both secured Challenge Tour cards in recent weeks, via the PGA Euro Pro Tour and Alps Tour respectively, also remain on course to go one better.  Will Roebuck (75), Luke Cornford (76) and amateur Nick Watson (80) will all be disappointed to have fallen away on the final day.  Ireland’s Chris Selfridge had to withdraw when well placed with an injured wrist while Gavin Moynihan will be disappointed with his finish after an encouraging opening day.

Las Colinas Golf & Country Club – 6,974 yards, Par 71

There were just 3 GB&I qualifiers from the 23 starters at Las Colinas.  England’s Jamie Rutherford and Wales’ Stuart Manley, who performed very consistently led the way. Swedish amateur Marcus Kinhult confirmed his outstanding potential by finishing T3 on -11.  In a tightly bunched field Darren Wright, Jamie Elson and Oliver Farr all drifted out of the qualifying places on the final day after shooting 73’s.

European Tour QS

Lumine Golf & Beach Club (Lakes Course) – 6,909 yards, Par 71

Lumine proved to be a happy hunting ground for the GB&I players with a total of 9 progressing from the 26 starters.  Daniel Gavins starred with medalist honours, sprinting through the finishing line with a -19 total.  Paul Howard was a notable qualifier with a consistent set of scores but it was his namesake and former GB&I amateur colleague Paul Dunne that stole the headlines – a final round 67 and progression through a play off saw to that.  French amateur Robin Roussel, who finished with a best of the week 62 and T3 place, should also be noted. Amateur champion Romain Langasque finished on -2 and 51st and is therefore still in line to play in three Majors next year.  English amateur Ashton Turner just missed out but can take confidence from his 69, 66 T25 finish.

Panoramica Golf & Sport Resort – 7,030 yards, Par 72

6 GB&I players progressed from Panoramica from the 29 that started out last Friday morning. Ireland’s Brian Casey finished T1 with Spanish amateur Scott Fernandez with an astonishing -24 total.  Ashley Chesters will join his Walker Cup partner Jimmy Mullen at Final Stage as will 2014 Amateur champion Bradley Neil, both of whom qualified well.  Irish amateur Jack Hume nearly delivered a Second Stage miracle – his final round 63 got him in to a 6-man play-off on -11 but he sadly came up short and will now be relying on withdrawals to make it to PGA Catalunya.  Australia’s Antonio Murdaca shot a final round 64 to make the grade and join compatriot Todd Sinnott, who qualified at Lumine.  Both are newly turned Pro’s managed by Chubby Chandler’s ISM.
