Michael Stewart and Ross Cameron assured themselves of regular starts on next year’s Alps Tour by finishing within the top 20 on the last day of the Final Qualifying School at La Cala Golf Resort, Marbella on the Costa del Sol yesterday.
John Henry, after a 67 in the second round, ran up an 80 and a final placing of joint 62nd puts him well down the pecking order for starts on the 2013 Tour. Troon’s Stewart, whose pro career has never got out of the starting blocks since the Walker Cup in September 2011, at last showed he could string three good rounds together as he did when he was an amateur. He shot 70, 72 and 69 for five-under-par 211 and a share of 12th.
Cameron, from Ellon, finished joint 18th on 212 with scores of 68, 72 and 72.
Winner of the Alps Tour Q School was Spain’s Carols Pigem with a 13-under-par total of 203.
