European Tour Q-School – 2017 First Stage Preview, Draws & Scores

September 2017

The 2017 European Tour Qualifying School started on Tuesday 12th September.

The First Qualifying Stage consists of eight separate 72-hole events which are split into four Sections, A, B, C and D. Section A was played last week with Sections B, C and D continuing weekly over the next three weeks.

A new Far East Qualifier was scheduled to be played at Saujana G&CC in Malaysia on 5th September but this was cancelled by the Tour on 23rd August due to a lack of interest.

The number of players that will progress to the Second Qualifying Stage is announced shortly after each First Stage event starts. This tends to be based on 25% of each field and broadly the top 20 and ties for the final position move forward from each event.

There are 54-hole cuts at each First Stage qualifier. Only those players who are within 7 shots of the final allocated qualifying place play the final round.

The Second Qualifying Stage consists of four separate 72-hole events that will be played concurrently in Spain on 3rd-6th November 2017.

The Final Qualifying Stage consists of 108 holes at Lumine GC. This competition will be played on 11th-16th November 2017.

The European Tour Q-School entrance fee is €1,800.

European Tour QS

As in previous years I am following the Q-School series closely, specifically focussing on the amateur and recently turned pro entries from Great Britain & Ireland.

The leading five Q-School entrants as at 23rd August 2017, up to a limit of 15th place in the World Amateur Golf Rankings, were exempted into the Second Stage. This year Scott GREGORY (ENG), Connor SYME (SCO) and Robert MACINTYRE (SCO) are therefore not required to contest the First Stage.
