European Tour Q-School – 2018 Second Stage Preview & Results

October / November 2018

I continue to follow the progress of all of the amateurs and some selected Great British and Irish (GB&I) professionals in the 2018 European Tour Q-School series.

This article focuses on SECOND STAGE QUALIFYING which ended on Monday 5th November at Desert Springs GC, Las Colinas G&CC, El Encin GH and Alenda Golf, all in Spain.

Each competition was played concurrently over 72 holes over four days with no cut.

291 players started these events with 98 (34%) of these hailing from Great Britain and Ireland (GB&I).

804 players contested First Stage Qualifying this year with 171 (21.3%) progressing to Second Stage. These numbers included 62 amateurs, 13 of which were successful. Of these Spain’s Angel Hidalgo and Switzerland’s Perry Cohen chose to turn pro ahead of Second Stage.

These 171 qualifiers were joined by those players who were exempt from First Stage due to their performances on the 2018 European Tour, Challenge Tour and other feeder / satellite tours.

Exemptions were also given to the leading five Q-School entrants as at 29th August 2018, up to a limit of 15th place, in the Men’s World Amateur Golf Ranking. As a result of this Matthew JORDAN (ENG), Robin DAWSON (IRE) and Todd CLEMENTS (ENG) – all of whom have recently turned Pro – started their Q-School journeys at Second Stage this year.

__________________________________________________

95 qualifying places were made available for Second Stage with sudden death play-offs required at three of the four sites to separate tied players for the final space(s) and to determine the alternates.

Well done to Kristoffer REITAN (NOR), Ben HUTCHINSON (ENG), Andrew WILSON (ENG) and Allen JOHN (GER), the four amateurs who progressed from Second Stage.

These 95 qualifiers will be joined by 61 exempt players at Lumine GC for next week’s Final Stage event. The total field of 156 will play 108 holes with the target for all of the players being a Top 25 finish and a European Tour card.

European Tour QS

THE 2018 EUROPEAN TOUR QUALIFYING SCHOOL SERIES

The European Tour Qualifying School was first played in 1976, four years after the European Tour was founded. What started out as a 72 hole test has grown into potentially a 252 hole marathon.

Nowadays there are three stages of stroke play qualifying, First, Second and Final.

This year the European Tour Q-School entrance fee has been increased to €2,000 (2017: €1,800).

First Stage

First Stage consists of eight 72 hole stroke play qualifying events split into four Sections, A, B, C and D.

Around 20% of each field, normally 15-30 players, progress from each event.

A 54-hole cut, where players need to be within 7 shots of the final allocated qualifying place, reduces the field for the final round. Ties for the final qualifying place at the end of play proceed too.

For a recap on the eight First Stage competitions played between 11th September and 12th October please read my earlier article – European Tour Q-School – 2018 First Stage Preview & Results

Second Stage

The Second Qualifying Stage consists of four separate 72-hole events that will be played at Desert Springs R&GC, Las Colinas G&CC, El Encin GH and Alenda Golf, all in Spain, concurrently on 2nd-5th November 2018.

El Encin GH on the outskirts of Madrid was announced as a replacement venue for Panoramica G&SR on 9th October. El Encin is a former host of the Madrid Masters and the Challenge Tour’s Challenge de Madrid. I assume Panoramica failed the final European Tour inspection given the late change.

Final Stage

The Final Qualifying Stage consists of 108 holes on the Lakes and Hills Courses at Lumine GC in Tarragona, Spain. Lumine replaced PGA Catalunya Resort in 2017 and will host Final Stage both the this year and in 2019. This competition will be played on 10th-15th November 2018.

The leading 25 players (and ties) from the 156 that will contest Final Stage will be eligible for membership of the European Tour and membership of the Challenge Tour for the 2018/19 season. The leading 70 players (and ties) who make the 72-hole cut will obtain a lower category memberships of the European Tour and the Challenge Tour. Those who miss the cut receive an even lower category membership of the Challenge Tour.

European Tour Q-School – 2017 Second Stage Preview & Results

October / November 2017

The Second Stage QSchool Results can be found at the bottom of this article.

The Second Stage of the European Tour’s Qualifying School started on Friday 3rd November at four venues in Spain.

The 72 hole competitions were all to be played over four days with no cut. However, following strong winds Sunday’s Round 3 at the Panoramica course was postponed. This Qualifier therefore finished on Tuesday, a day later than the others.

The fields included the 176 players that qualified from the eight First Stage events.

For a recap on the First Stage competitions and specifically on the progress of the Great British and Irish (GB&I) amateurs and new professionals please read my earlier article – European Tour Q-School – 2017 First Stage Preview & Results

The qualifiers were joined by those players who were exempt from First Stage due to their performances on the 2017 European Tour, Challenge Tour and other feeder / satellite tours.

Exemptions were also given to the leading 5 entrants as at 23rd August 2017 to a limit of 15th place in the World Amateur Golf Ranking provided that they had applied to enter the First Stage by this date. In 2017 this rule benefited Scott GREGORY (ENG), Connor SYME (SCO) and Robert MACINTYRE (SCO) [all of whom qualified this week for Final Stage].

86 players progressed to the Final Stage of Qualifying School. The Panoramica site was originally scheduled to have 21 qualifiers but for unknown reasons 22 players were allowed through. With the final round delayed perhaps time ran out for the ‘3 for 4’ play off that should have taken place ? Sudden death play-offs were required and used at the three other Second Stage qualifying sites where play concluded on Monday.

This year the Final Stage competition is being played at Lumine Golf Club in Tarragona, Spain between the 11th and 16th November. The Lakes and Hills courses will both be used.

This should be beneficial to the less experienced players who make the latter stage as this represents a new venue for the six round marathon, albeit the Lakes has hosted one of the Second Stage events for some time. You will recall that prior to 2017 PGA Catalunya Resort had been used for Final Stage for many years.

The leading 25 players (and ties) from the 156 that will contest Final Stage will be eligible for Category 17 membership of the European Tour and Category 5 membership of the Challenge Tour for the 2017/18 season. The leading 70 players (and ties) who make the 72-hole cut will obtain Category 22 membership of the European Tour and Category 9 membership of the Challenge Tour. Those who miss the cut receive Category 15 membership of the Challenge Tour.

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.

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.
