The battle to earn a European Tour card for 2013 moves to Spain this week when 309 hopefuls take part in the Qualifying School Stage Two at four separate venues.

Those players who progressed from the eight courses that hosted the First Stage in September and October are joined by exempt players, all with the aim of progressing through to the Final Stage at PGA Catalunya Resort from November 24-29.

The four host venues for Stage Two are Campo de Golf El Saler, in Valencia; Las Colinas Golf & Country Club, in Alicante; El Valle Golf Resort, in Murcia; and Lumine Golf & Beach Club, in Tarragona.

Among those participating is US Amateur Champion Kelly Kraft, who carded a two under par final round of 69 to win the European Tour Qualifying School First Stage at Golf d’Hardelot by two shots.

Kraft is joined by Alexander Björk, Liam Bond, Chan Kim, Mark Staunton, Robin Wingardh and amateurs Edouard Espana and Tapio Pulkkanen, all of whom were victorious at Stage One.
