The second phase of First Stage European Tour Qualifying School today came to a close at The Stoke by Nayland Hotel Golf & Spa and Golfclub Schloss Ebreichsdorf with a further 39 players booking their place in Second Stage.

England’s Jamie Abbott came out on top in Stoke by Nayland on eight under par, while American Casey Wittenberg finished on 18 under par in Austria to finish ahead of the rest of the field.

It was a tough week of scoring in England with only eight players finishing with under par totals after four rounds. Norwegian amateur Kristoffer Reitan finished a shot behind Abbott, while Welshman Jack Davidson finished a shot further back on six under par.

The highest qualifying score was three over par, which four players shared, including English amateur Joshua McMahon.

By contrast, it was a low scoring affair in Austria with all qualifying players finishing with a lower score than Abbott’s eight under in England.

Wittenberg finished on 18 under par and he was closely followed by Italian Aron Zemmer on 17 under. A shot further back was Dane Victor Gebhard Østerby, Australia’s Brett Rankin finished on a total of 14 under par, while Miguel Carballo and Perry Cohen finished on 13 under.
