European Tour Q-School – 2016 Final Stage Preview

10th November 2016

The Final Stage of the European Tour’s Qualifying School series starts on Saturday 12th November at the PGA Catalunya Resort in Girona. It is the 9th consecutive year that this Spanish Club in the north east of the country has hosted the final Q-School competition.

Q-School Format

The Final Qualifying Stage is played over 108 holes on the Stadium and Tour Courses. The Stadium Course (7,333 yards, par 72) is much tougher than the shorter Tour Course (6,610 yards, par 70).

A field of 156 golfers start out by playing 72 holes; two rounds on each of the above courses. The leading 70 players (and ties) then play a final 36-holes on the Stadium Course to determine the final positions.

Prizes

At the conclusion of play on Thursday 17th November the leading 25 players (and ties) will earn cards on both the European Tour (Category 16) and the Challenge Tour (Category 5) for the 2017 season. Additionally within these Categories each player is ranked according to their final finishing position.

Those players who make the 72-hole cut but fail to finish in the Top 25 are eligible for Category 21 membership of the European Tour and Category 9 membership of the Challenge Tour. Those who fail to make the cut are eligible for Category 15 membership of the Challenge Tour.

Whilst of secondary importance there is also a €150,000 prize fund for the Final Qualifying Stage. The winner will receive €16,000. Successful Card receiving players will earn declining sums down to 25th place (or tied for 25th) where €1,860 will be awarded. Players who finish outside the Top 25 but who make the 72-hole cut will each earn €750.

2016 Final Qualifying Stage – Field and Tee Times

71 qualifiers from last week’s four Second Stage events have been joined by 85 exempt players to make up the field of 156 players.

The players that automatically qualify for Final Stage are: –
1. Players already eligible for Category 17 or 18 membership of the European Tour in 2017 (i.e. those finishing in positions 112-145 in the 2016 Race To Dubai);
2. Players finishing in positions 16-45 in the 2016 Challenge Tour Rankings;
3. Winners of a European Tour Order of Merit (OoM) event after 1st January 2007;
4. The winner of the 2016 Qualifying School;
5. The winner of the Challenge Tour Rankings in 2015;
6. European Tour Members in 41st – 75th positions in the Tour’s Career Money List as at 31st August 2016; and
7. The leading three entrants as at 31st August 2016 up to 15th place on The Asian Tour, The Japan Golf Tour, PGA Tour of Australasia (2015 OoM) and The Sunshine Tour (2015 OoM).

The 2016 Q-School field looks to be one of the strongest ever assembled. Y.E. Yang the 2009 US PGA Champion and 35 other European Tour winners, including 6-time winner Alvaro Quiros, are all competing.

Appendix 2 – 2015 Final Qualifying Stage Results

It is always interesting to look back to see what will broadly be required to progress this year.

Last year 27 players earned European Tour cards. The minimum score required to achieve this was -7 (421). The winning score was -18 (410) which was achieved by Ulrich VAN DEN BERG (RSA), Adrian OTAEGUI (ESP) and Daniel IM (USA). Van Den Berg (40) won the event on a count back. He was the oldest ever winner of the Q-School and was the oldest 2015 qualifier.

Marcus KINHULT (SWE) -10 T13 became the first amateur to graduate since Moritz LAMBERT in 2012. At 19 he was also the youngest 2015 qualifier.

12 GB&I players progressed – 10 from England, 1 from Ireland and 1 from Wales. Interestingly the average age of the 12 GB&I qualifiers was 30. Here they are: –

T4    Ross MCGOWAN (ENG) 69 69 64 73 64 74 (-15)
6th   Matthew SOUTHGATE (ENG) 72 66 68 70 68 70 (-14)

T24  Chris HANSON (ENG) 70 63 66 71 73 78 (-7)

A total of 78 players made the cut on -1 (283) or better. The following GB&I players made the cut but finished outside the all important Top 25: –

T28  Gary KING (ENG) 64 72 64 74 74 74 (-6)

European Tour Q-School – 2016 Second Stage Results

7th November 2016

The European Tour’s Second Qualifying Stage came to an exciting conclusion earlier today in Spain.

From the 322 players competing at the four qualifying courses just 71 secured spots at the Final Qualifying Stage.

No amateur entrants have made it through to the Final Qualifying Stage. David BOOTE (WAL) coming closest – he missed out in a play-off at Las Colinas.

The bad news for today’s qualifiers is they will now be joined by 85 ‘stronger’ players who are all exempt into the Final Stage.

The marathon continues next Saturday 12th November at PGA Catalunya Resort in Girona, Spain. There are still 108 holes of nerve wracking golf to be played at the Stadium and Tour Courses. After all that golf the top 25 and ties will be awarded a well deserved 2017 European Tour card.

Meanwhile here is my report on the Second Stage results: –

CAMPO DE GOLF EL SALER – 7,057 yards, Par 72 – 81 entries
Click here for the – El Saler Results

The medalist at El Saler was Fabian MARTY (FRA) with a -14 72-hole score.

Just three Great British and Irish (GB&I) players qualified from El Saler where 17 spots were allocated. These were Daniel GAVINS (ENG) -12 3rd, Curtis GRIFFITHS (ENG) -9 6th and Ashley CHESTERS (ENG) -8 T7 (67, 73, 73, 67).

Chesters who turned Pro following the 2015 Walker Cup impressively shot a 5-under 67 in the final round to come through the field and secure his place at the Final Qualifying Stage.

German Christopher CARSTENSEN, who turned Pro ahead of this Second Stage event, performed admirably too. His -6 total saw him finish T10 and assured he would be on the bus to PGA Catalunya.

Notable players to miss out were Chester’s Walker Cup teammates Cormac SHARVIN (IRE) -3 T18 (68, 73, 73, 71), Ewen FERGUSON (SCO) -2 T24 (74, 69, 74, 69) and Jack MCDONALD (SCO) +8 T64 (78, 75, 75, 68).

Scottish amateur Liam JOHNSTON also fell short after rounds of 70, 78, 70 and 76 saw him finish T57 on +6. The only other amateur competing at El Saler, Nicholas SMITS (NED), finished T68 on +12.

Looking at some of the new Pros from across Europe, Robin SCIOT-SIEGRIST (FRA) qualified alongside Chesters in T7 place but highly rated pair Marcus KINHULT (SWE) and Adrian MERONK (PLD) both missed out with -1 T30 finishes. Kinhult earned a European Tour card last year alongside fellow amateur Paul DUNNE (IRE). Whilst Dunne retained his card the younger Kinhult has generally struggled, perhaps lacking the experience and maturity to cope with the demands of Pro life. He is of course too good not to make it back to the big time soon.

As El Saler provided just 17 qualifiers, whereas the other three venues had 18 spots, the alternates will come from this site.

LAS COLINAS GOLF & COUNTRY CLUB – 6,974 yards, Par 71 – 80 entries
Click here for the – Las Colinas Results

The medalist at Las Colinas was Oscar LENGDEN (SWE) with a -15 total.

Las Colinas proved to be a successful hunting ground for GB&I players. Stuart MANLEY (WAL) -13 2nd, Grant FORREST (SCO) -8 5th, Gary HURLEY (IRE) -6 7th, Bradley NEIL (SCO) -5 T9, Kevin PHELAN (IRE) -5 T9, Peter WHITEFORD (SCO) T13 and James ALLAN (ENG) -2 T17 were all amongst the successful 18 qualifiers.

Grant Forrest (67, 68, 74, 67) and Gary Hurley (69, 64, 75, 70), 2015 Walker Cup players, as well as 2014 Amateur Champion Bradley Neil were the obvious standouts for me here.

Amateur David BOOTE (WAL) and Matthew NIXON (ENG) will feel hard done by. Both finished on -2 T17 but missed out in the 5-man play-off which saw Allan progress with Italy’s Andrea MAESTRONI.

2015 English Amateur champion Joe DEAN (ENG) was left rueing a poor Sunday round 3. His +4 score, after rounds of 68, 69, 79 and 72, saw him finish T39.

There was no joy for the amateurs in the Las Colinas field. Gregoire SCHOEB (FRA) paid for two poor weekend rounds finishing on +2 T34. Matias CALDERON (Chile) +8 T50, Cameron SHAW (ENG) +18 67th and Mauro ANDERI (GER) +21 69th were unfortunately well off the pace.

European Tour QS

LUMINE GOLF & BEACH CLUB – 6,909 yards, Par 71 – 81 entries
Click here for the – Lumine Results

The medalist at Lumine was David LAW (SCO) with a -12 score at the Tarragona course.

Lumine proved to be another good qualifying venue for GB&I players. Joining Law were Robert COLES (ENG) -11 2nd, Ross KELLETT (SCO) -10 T3, Billy HEMSTOCK (ENG) -10 T3, Mark FOSTER (ENG) -7 T9, Nathan KIMSEY (ENG) -7 T9, Steve SURRY (ENG) -6 T15 and Charlie BULL (ENG) -6 T15.

Steve Surry and Charlie Bull both negotiated an 8 man play off for the final 4 Lumine spots. Unfortunately Ruaidhri MCGEE (IRE) and new Spanish pro Ivan CANTERO GUTIERREZ were unable to join them. French pair Jérôme LANDO CASANOVA and Olivier ROZNER picked up the two other available places. 18 players progressed from Lumine in total.

Daniel YOUNG (SCO) (72, 72, 72, 69) +1 T48 and Ashton TURNER (ENG) (68, 71, 72, 77) +4 T59 were amongst the notable GB&I players to fall at the second qualifying hurdle.

Amateur’s Max SCHMITT (GER) finished on +1 T48 after rounds of 70, 70, 74 and 71 whilst England’s Ben AMOR was only able to deliver his best golf in the third round as he finished on +6 64th (74, 77, 66, 73).

Paul HOWARD (ENG) (71, 72, 73) and Jamie SAVAGE (SCO) (73, 69, 70) both retired after the third round with injuries.

PANORAMICA GOLF & SPORT RESORT – 7,030 yards, Par 72 – 80 entries
Click here for the – Panoramica Results

Medalist at Panoramica was Paul MADDY (ENG) with a -19 total. Despite this being the easiest of the four courses Paul’s rounds of 68, 69, 67 and 65 were hugely impressive and saw him sprinting through the finish line.

The other GB&I players to join him, amongst the 18 qualifiers here, were Laurie CANTER (ENG) -17 2nd, Charlie FORD (ENG) -15 3rd, Jamie RUTHERFORD (ENG) -12 T4 and finally Jack HARRISON (ENG) -8 T17.

Harrison came through a 4 for 2 play-off which unfortunately saw William HAROLD (ENG) -8 T17 miss out.

English trio Thomas SHADBOLT (67, 70, 72, 72), Stiggy HODGSON (67, 70, 71, 73) and Jamie DICK (71, 67, 71, 72) who all finished on -7 T21 will all be wishing they could play their final rounds again.

Welshman Richard JAMES will also be wondering what happened. He couldn’t have made a much better start with rounds of 69 and 66 but sadly fell away with a finishing 76 and 78.

English amateur Adam CHAPMAN (+3) finished T51. Two 76’s in rounds 2 and 4 effectively killing off any chances he had after an opening 69.

Will ENEFER (ENG), who turned pro before the event, finished on +12 68th after rounds of 74, 73, 77 and 76. The Shropshire youngster will now have to continue his golfing education on the development tours.

Irish 2015 Walker Cup player Jack HUME (IRE) withdrew with a neck injury after opening rounds of 75 and 77.

Two Europeans who turned pro before competing at Panoramica, Thomas PERROT (FRA) and Lars VAN MEIJEL (NED), both just missed out finishing together on -6 T28 alongside England’s Billy SPOONER.

European Tour Q-School – 2016 First Stage Preview

11th September 2016

The 2016 European Tour Qualifying School starts this week, on Tuesday 13th September.

The First Qualifying Stage consists of eight separate 72-hole events which are split into four Sections, A, B, C and D. Each Section, consisting of two qualifiers, will be played weekly over the next three weeks. The number of players that will progress to the Second Stage will be announced shortly after each event starts. It is normally around 25% of the field. 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.

From an amateur perspective the leading five Q-School entrants as at 31st August 2016, up to a limit of 15th place in the World Amateur Golf Rankings, are exempted into the Second Stage. As such Jack HUME (IRE), Scott GREGORY (ENG) and Grant FORREST (SCO) do not need to contest the First Stage, having been exempted into the Second.

The Second Qualifying Stage consists of four separate 72-hole events that will be played in Spain on 4th-7th November 2016.

The Final Qualifying Stage consists of 108 holes at PGA Catalunya Resort in Spain. This competition will be played on 12th-17th November 2016.

Each player has to pay an entrance fee of €1,800 to compete.

European Tour Q-School – Final Stage Results

19th November 2015

The Final Stage European Tour Qualifying School event was completed earlier today at the PGA Catalunya Resort in Gerona.

953 players entered the 2015 Q-School programme with 27, from 12 different countries, achieving the ultimate goal of a full European Tour card for the 2015/16 season.  To be precise they each have Category 16 membership of the European Tour and Category 5 membership of the Challenge Tour.

Seven of the successful group took the full Q-School journey starting out at the First Stage.  GB&I’s Matthew Southgate (ENG), Daniel Gavins (ENG), Paul Dunne (IRE) and Laurie Canter (ENG) were amongst them.  Three of the graduates started out at Second Stage with the remaining 17 being exempt into the Final Stage.

There was some consolation for the players that made the cut but missed out on a Top 25 and Ties place, namely Category 21 membership of the European Tour and Category 9 membership of the Challenge Tour.  The players that reached Final Stage but failed to make the cut received Category 15 membership of the Challenge Tour.

Ulrich Van Der Berg (RSA), aged 40, won the Final Stage event on count back from Adrian Otaegui (ESP) and Daniel Im (USA). Van Der Berg is the oldest ever winner of Q-School and was the oldest 2015 qualifier.

Marcus Kinhult (SWE) became the first amateur to graduate since Moritz Lambert in 2012.  At 19 he was also the youngest 2015 qualifier.  Kinhult, who will turn Pro immediately, won the Spirit International and Lytham Trophy before delivering some standout European Tour invite performances later in 2015. What a year and definitely one to watch next year.

12 GB&I players progressed – 10 from England, 1 from Ireland and 1 from Wales.  David Law was the highest Scottish finisher but unfortunately his -5 T32 result fell a couple of shots short.  Interestingly the average age of the 12 GB&I qualifiers was 30.

The highest GB&I finisher was Ross McGowan (ENG) who finished T4 on -15.  He secured his spot with a tremendous round 5 64 on the tough Stadium Course.

Matthew Southgate (ENG), Daniel Gavins (ENG), David Dixon (ENG), James Robinson (ENG), Laurie Canter (ENG) Richard Finch (ENG) got into position early and steadily saw the qualifier out.  Dixon did throw in a quality final round of 68 to finish the job off.

I was really impressed with Richard McEvoy (ENG), Stuart Manley (WAL) and Ryan Evans (ENG) who left themselves work to do when the pressure was at it’s highest and then delivered.  Final rounds of 68 69, 69 66 and 69 68 respectively saw all three impressively sprint through the finishing line.

It was also great to see Paul Dunne (IRE) finish off an outstanding year with a place in the big time too.  Dunno, beating Daniel Gavin’s by 2 years, was the youngest GB&I qualifier aged 22 (he is 23 next Thursday).  The amateur star of this year’s Open Championship comfortably qualified with rounds of 71, 68, 70, 68, 69, and 72 (-10).  It will be interesting to see how his consistently steady play will pan out on the European Tour where the money earners are more hit and miss, perhaps reflecting a more aggressive style of play.  I am sure he will continue to find a way.

Matters were a little more fraught for our final GB&I qualifier, Chris Hanson (ENG).  A final round 78, albeit finished off with two brave pars, saw him secure the final spot with a -7 total.

Former Ryder Cup player Edoardo Molinari (ITA) birdied four of his last eight holes to finish -7 T24 and claim one of the last cards.

Gary King (SCO) and Damian McGrane (IRE), who were within the Top 25 and Ties places after four rounds, will be disappointed to have fallen away on the final two days.  Rounds of 74 74 and 72 78 respectively saw them fall down the leaderboard and sadly off the European Tour bus having stood on the platform just days earlier.

Listed below are the complete Final Stage results for all of the GB&I players (and the three amateurs that were competing).

European Tour Q-School – Final Stage Update (Day 4)

17th November 2015

The Final Stage European Tour Qualifying School event started last Friday at the PGA Catalunya Resort in Gerona.  It is the 8th consecutive year that this Spanish Club has hosted the final Q-School competition.

953 players entered the 2015 Q-School programme.  156 players from 26 different countries teed off last week – 49 were from Great Britain & Ireland (GB&I). Looking at the field 43 of them started out at First Stage, 31 at Second Stage and 82 were exempt straight into Final Stage.

Four of the six rounds have now been completed, two each on both the Stadium and Tour Courses.  The Stadium Course (7,333 yards, par 72) is much tougher than the Tour Course (6,610 yards, par 70).  This difference was highlighted dramatically this year by Ireland’s Ruaidhri McGee who shot a round 1 64 on the Tour before following it with an 87 on the Stadium on day 2.

Following today’s 72 hole Top 70 and Ties cut (which fell at -1) the field has been reduced to 78 players – with 26 coming from GB&I. Those players who have made the Final Stage Q-School cut are now eligible for Category 21 membership of the European Tour and Category 9 membership of the Challenge Tour.  Those who have failed to make the cut are eligible for Category 15 membership of the Challenge Tour.

A final 36 holes around the Stadium Course will now be completed.  For those who have made the cut the playing targets for the 2015/16 season will be raised higher. The Top 25 and Ties at the end of play on Thursday will each receive the ‘golden ticket’ – a Category 16 membership of the European Tour and Category 5 membership of the Challenge Tour.

European Tour QS

So let’s take stock after 72 holes and with the 2015 Q-School cut having fallen.

England’s Daniel Gavins and Chris Hanson share the Q-School lead after 72 holes.  Another 9 GB&I players are currently lying in the all important Top 25 places.  It is interesting to note that four of these are seasoned Pros, Ross McGowan, David DixonDamian McGrane and Richard Finch.  The star of this year’s Open Championship Paul Dunne shot a 68 on the Stadium to move nicely into position in T18.  Swedish amateur Marcus Kinhult will be disappointed with today’s 76 but should be very proud of his current T8 position – let’s hope he can finish off the job.

The group that made the cut but will need to play extra well over the next two days to secure their cards also includes some experienced names such as Mark Foster, Kenneth Ferrie and Richard McEvoy.  Younger pros like Kevin Phelan, Joshua White, Ryan Evans and Josh Loughrey have also done well and are more than capable of good finishes.  Spain’s Scott Fernandez is the only other amateur to make the cut.

Jordan Smith and Jordan Wrisdale were unlucky to just miss the cut after brave 65’s on the Tour course; sadly both scores ended up being insufficient to remedy poor first rounds.  Ashley Chesters and Jimmy Mullen, 22 tomorrow, both fell short of joining their fellow 2015 Walker Cup teammate Dunne in the final stages.  Other notable former amateur stars Jack SeniorBradley Neil and Max Orrin also missed out.

Listed below are the complete Final Stage results for all of the GB&I players (and the three amateurs that are competing).

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.

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.

How Did The 2014 European Tour Q-School Graduates Get On ?

28th October 2015

On 20th November 2014 27 players from 12 different countries were celebrating having secured their full 2015 European Tour cards.

Two players, Tom Murray and Daniel Woltman, had even managed to come through all three stages of the gruelling Q-School process.

Of the 27 graduates, six were existing 2014 European Tour members whilst 11 would be rookies (R) in the 2015 season.  One of the latter group was Italy’s Renato Paratore, who at 17 years and 341 days, was the third youngest qualifier in the history of the event and the youngest since 1982.

With the UBS Hong Kong Open and the 2015 regular season now completed I thought I would have a closer look at how they have all got on.

The minimum goal for every European Tour player has to be retaining their card for the following season.  That means finishing in the Top 110 in the Race To Dubai (R2D) Rankings.  England’s Ben Evans finished in 110th spot with points / prize money of €250,211.  In other words the bar is quite high.

I have listed each of the 27 players below and shown their finishing position in the Final Qualifying Stage last year in brackets.  I have graded each of them on their achievements and regular season R2D Rankings.  Prior to the four Final Series tournaments, the first of which starts in Turkey this week, the points equate directly to Euro-denominated prize money.

A+ – Outstanding, they have exceeded all expectations

Anirban Lahiri IND (17) (R) 
R2D – 1,447,461 (10th) / Events 18
Wins in Malaysia and India in February meant Anirban got the job done early. His T5 at the US PGA Championship and subsequent President’s Cup appearance have put him on the world map.  No rookie has earned this amount of money in the history of the Tour before and the season still has a few weeks to run.

Matthew Fitzpatrick ENG (11) (R)
R2D – 1,435,826 (11th) / Events 28
Recently turned 21 Matt has the golfing world at his feet. His win at the British Masters was great for the event and British golf. When coupled with his 7 other Top 10s this season he will no doubt give Anirban a run for the Sir Henry Cotton Rookie of The Year award as the Final Series unfolds in the coming weeks.

 

A – a superb season with card retained and well placed to qualify for the DP World Tour Championship (Top 60)

Rikard Karlberg SWE (9) (R)
R2D – 597,058 (45th) / Events 23
Two weeks in September largely glossed over an average season for Rikard. He won the Italian Open then finished T5 at the Porsche European Open in Germany.

B – very good; card comfortably retained and excellent prize money earned

Eduardo De La Riva ESP (7)
R2D – 452,780 (67th) / Events 23
Another player who pulled out a couple of great results in the final weeks of the season. Eduardo finished T2 at The KLM Open and T3 at the Portugal Masters a couple of weeks ago.

Pelle Edberg SWE (21)
R2D – 440,646 (69th) / Events 25
Pelle retained his card with three strong performances this season; 4th at the Omega European Masters, 2nd at the D+D REAL Czech Masters and finally a 3rd at the Porsche European Masters.

Andrew Dodt AUS (10)
R2D – 434,990 (70th) / Events 17
Andrew won the True Thailand Classic back in February to get the job done early.

Renato Paratore ITA (3) (R)
R2D – 251,218 (109th) / Events 29
A steady start to the year with lots of cuts made but in the second half of the season the young Italian become more inconsistent, albeit with some better finishes. A great achievement for an 18 year old to retain his card so well worthy of a B grade.

C – a good outcome; card retained with nice prize money earned

Joakim Lagergren SWE (16)
R2D – 341,155 (83rd) / Events 23
A T3 at the Hero Indian Open, a T3 at the Italian Open and an impressive and nicely timed T4 at the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship were more than good enough for the young Swede.

Mikko Korhonen FIN (1)
R2D – 310,506 (89th) / Events 21
The winner of last year’s Q-School comfortably retained his card with a steady if unspectacular season which saw him pick up a modest cheque at most of the events he entered.

John Parry ENG (6)
R2D – 301,681 (92nd) / Events 26
John picked up a number of top 20 finishes and cheques, often at lower profile events, to retain his card.

Matt Ford ENG (4) (R)
R2D – 262,333 (105th) / Events 28
A 2nd place in the Africa Open back in March set up Matt’s season but it still took a brave T7 in Hong Kong last week for him to get the job done.

Chris Paisley ENG (22)
R2D – 254,681 (108th) / Events 21
An exceptional 3rd place at the BMW International Open in late June provided the foundation for Chris’s successful year.

Borja Virto ESP (19) (R)
R2D – 17,138 / Events 12 – excluded from the final R2D ranking
Focussed on the Challenge Tour (playing 17 events) and last week won The Foshan Open in China. This moved him up to 3rd on the Road To Oman Rankings (with €135,432) and, with the top 15 qualifying, effectively secured his 2015 European Tour card before next week’s finale.  Achieved the goal but in a roundabout way – therefore worthy of a C grade.

European Tour QS

D – a good effort but sadly fell short of the required standard and are therefore back to Q-School

Jason Scrivener AUS (18) (R)
R2D – 223,944 (117th) / Events 21
A solid finish to the year and a brave T3 at the UBS Hong Kong Open were sadly not enough for Jason to recover a slow start. Without a win you simply can’t start playing in July.

Adrian Otaegui ESP (5)
R2D – 222,735 (118th) / Events 26
Adrian made 16 cuts but couldn’t quite deliver the high end result(s) that gets you over the line. Lots to build on though.

Richard McEvoy ENG (8)
R2D – 178,021 (127th) / Events 25
A T5 at the Omega European Masters and a T7 at the Hero Indian Open were the highlights over a disappointing year for the 36th year old Englishman.

Pedro Oriol ESP (20)
R2D – 170,666 (130th) / Events 19
Like countryman Otaegui, Pedro made 16 cuts but with a best cheque of €34,042 for a T31 finish at the Aberdeen Asset Management Scottish Open just couldn’t make sufficient money to retain his card.

Lasse Jensen DEN (24)
R2D – 138,114 (144th) / Events 21
Another player who learned the lesson that consistency doesn’t always work on the European Tour. 13 cuts but few top 20s left Lasse well short.

Alessandro Tadini ITA (25)
R2D – 119,293 (148th) / Events 21
11 cuts but few high finishes, save for a good early season start in Africa, saw Alessandro struggle to break through in 2015.

Ricardo Gonzalez ARG (2)
R2D – 105,691 (160th) / Events 22
The 46 year old 4-time European tour winner from the Argentine is now sadly well past his best.

Paul Maddy ENG (13) (R)
R2D – 98,010 (162nd) / Events 26
Well off the pace in 2015 with Paul’s only notable performance coming in The South African Open in January (T5).

E – sadly came up a long way short and will enter the 2015 Q-School with only modest confidence

Tom Murray ENG (14) (R)
R2D – 67,897 (184th) / Events 21
Top 10s at the Nordea Masters and Madeira Open showed promise. His recent Challenge Tour win at the Volopa Irish Challenge in Northern Ireland means Tom, ranked 26th (€56,040), will go into the NBO Golf Classic Grand Final next week with all to play for and the possibility of avoiding a return to Q-School.

Andrea Pavan ITA (23)
R2D – 65,340 (187th) / Events 21
Andrea made 8 cuts but struggled to feature in the latter stages of any of these tournaments.

Chris Lloyd ENG (15)
R2D – 63,944 (188th) / Events 23
7 cuts made but only one in a first tier event; a T41 finish at the French Open is all Chris can take out of the season.

Daniel Woltman USA (26) (R)
R2D – 55,604 (195th) / Events 19
A T33 at the French Open was the highlight of Daniel’s year.

Cyril Bouniol FRA (27) (R)
R2D – 31,234 (208th) / Events 19
Cyril made 6 cuts but was unable to produce any finishes of note.

U – made little impact on the main Tour and ultimately failed to play sufficient events.

Espen Kofstad NOR (12)
R2D – 26,895 / Events 4 – excluded from the final R2D ranking
Another injury plagued season for Espen damaged his playing time. He will have a medical exemption for the 2016 season.

Another year where the harsh realities of the European Tour are clearly shown by a review of the results of the Q-School graduates.  Just 12 of the 27 players retained their card through their play on the Main Tour with Borja Virto also achieving it via the Challenge Tour.

Once again the vast majority of the successful players relied on no more than a handful of strong weeks.  The competition is so strong that only the really good golfers can hope to consistently deliver Top 20s.  Having looked at all of the results it makes me admire Matt Fitzpatrick’s season all the more, and even he has had a number of missed cuts.

Who would be a professional golfer – the game’s hard enough without all this pressure ?

ME.

~ The R2D Rankings used are the final regular season ones dated 25th October 2015.  They exclude Brooks Koepka who withdrew from the European Tour / R2D earlier this week.

European Tour Q-School 2015 – First Stage Results

15th September – 9th October 2015

The 2015 European Tour Qualifying School started on 15th September with 8 First Stage events completed during the period to 9th October.

778 players, each paying an entrance fee of €1,800, contested these 8 events with 275 (35%) coming from GB&I.

There were 195 qualifiers to the Second Stage – 25% of the total field – with 71 GB&I players progressing.  This represented 36% of the total qualifiers and 26% of the GB&I entrants.

A list of the 71 GB&I Amateurs and Pros that remain in this golfing marathon is provided below. I have specifically highlighted in bold all of the Amateurs and newly turned Pros.

Four Second Stage events will be held concurrently in Spain between the 6th-9th November.  Additional GB&I players who have pre-qualified will join the Qualifying School process at this point too.

For the full European Tour Q-School Schedule take a look at the Golf Bible Q-School Page.
