Nathan Kimsey sealed an impressive victory at 13 under par total for the six days at the Final Stage of Qualifying School having come through First and Second Stage  (a marathon 252 holes of Q-School) to triumph in Girona as late drama meant 30 players earned Race to Dubai spots for next season.

Behind him, late bogeys for Niclas Johansson, Richard McEvoy and Jamie Rutherford brought the qualifying mark down to five under par, meaning Jaco Ahlers, Gary King and Espen Kofstad all also earned European Tour promotions with the top 25 and ties winning cards.

Other notable names graduating included Edoardo Molinari, in a tie for second place on 12 under par, and 25yo Eddie Pepperell -10 retained his European Tour status having finished 113th in the RtoD. “Overall I am just really relieved and I am pleased. It is probably the most stressful day I have had on a golf course watching Tom (Lewis) and Richie (McEvoy), who had a bad one but managed to get in, and it is something I do not want to do again.

Earlier in the day, Ricardo Gonzalez – in the first game out – had shot an incredible 64 to set the clubhouse target on 12 under par and become, at 47 years and 24 days, the oldest ever Q-School graduate.

Korean’s Y. E. Yang, the first Major winner ever to compete at Q-School, also finished inside the top 25 at eight under par.

See Tom Lewis regained his TOUR card - Silver Medallist at the 2011 OPEN Championship - where he famously shot 65 to share the lead (and shared the tee with Tom Watson) in the first round - was lowest single-round score by an amateur in OPEN history. The 25yo had won the 2009 British Boys title also at Royal St. George's. 41yo Mark Foster is also back in the big time.
