Former Amateur Champion Bradley Neil carded a final round 66 to finish six under par and secure the win at the Qualifying School First Stage Section B at Golfclub Schloss Ebreichsdorf in Austria.

Neil was bogey free on the final day, the Scotsman cool under pressure with one of his six birdies coming on the 18th to push him two shots clear of his chasers and into the Second Qualifying Stage in November.
