The PGA EuroPro Tour Qualifying School Final Stage supported by Sky Sports gets underway at Stoke By Nayland Hotel, Golf, and Spa with players battling for the best possible status ahead of the 2022 season.
First Stage qualifiers will be joined by those with exemptions to the final stage from Elite Amateurs to those who competed in the 2021 season but missed out on next week’s Tour Championship at Slaley Hall.
There’s plenty of amateur and professional pedigree in the field with former PGA EuroPro Tour winners mixed in with players who have competed on the European and Challenge Tour along with some of the brightest prospects in golf. It’s a wide-ranging field with one common goal. To achieve the maximum category from Q School supported by Sky Sports, a category three.
The Final Stage gives an eye to see who could be the breakout star of the 2022 season with Sam Broadhurst claiming victory in 2021 and previous winners including Tyrrell Hatton, Jack Senior, and many more.
Entering at this stage are players who may have represented the USA or Great Britain & Ireland in the Walker Cup, along with some who will have competed on the Tour last season amongst others and top of PGA Order of Merits.
Ones to Watch
Owen Benson – Owen Benson’s showing was the strongest of anyone at the first stage. Benson of Moor Park signed for rounds of 63 and 67 to win at Mannings Heath at a canter by nine shots in a second round that included eagles at both 17 and 18. He has experience on the EuroPro from qualifying for Cumberwell Park on a Monday Qualifier.
Tim Rice – The vastly experienced Irishman is a threat and carries plenty of pedigree at an elite level with several EuroPro wins under his belt. This week could see him inevitably out on top again.
Ronan Mullarney – A first year is never going to be straightforward and Mullarney had a mixed bag making five cuts during the 2021 season which unfortunately wasn’t enough to secure full status for the season.
