McEvoy Wins European Q-School

RSS

European TourRichard McEvoy claimed medalist honors in the 2003 European Tour Qualifying Tournament. He shot 28-under-par 400 ' a new Q-School record ' in the six-round final stage.
 
The 24-year-old Englishman was forced into Q-School after finishing 19th on the Challenge Tours (Europes developmental tour) money list.
 
This is his first professional victory.
 
I set a goal to win this week after missing out on the Challenge Tour, he said. Its been a great week and Im obviously pleased to shoot a great score as well.
 
The final stage was contested at Emporada Golf Club and Golf Platja de Pals in Spain. McEvoy shot 8-under 63 at Emporada in the fifth round, and closed in 67 on the same venue.
 
He finished three strokes clear of the runner-up, Australian Wade Ormsby.
 
Ill probably go and live with Adam (Scott) near Wentworth next year, Ormsby said. He is a great friend of mine, and someone I look up to. I think if I can get anywhere near to his standard on the tour then Ill be keeping my card.
 
Exactly 35 players earned their European Tour cards for next season, including four former tour winners. Warren Bennett (eighth), David Carter (17th), Jorge Berendt (24th) and Miguel Angel Martin (27th) will be back on the circuit in 2004.
 
The last available spot went to South African Desvonde Botes. Botes birdied the 108th and final hole to take solo 35th place.
