American Jay Horton won the 1999 European Seniors Tour Qualifying School in Turkey after a third successive 69 took him to 10 under par and a one stroke victory over Japaneese player Seiji Ebihara. Englishmen David Creamer and Nick Job and Brazillian Priscillo Diniz tied on 6 under par, Creamer taking the third place ranking with his lower final round of 68.
Job, a former European Tour player, birdied his final two holes for his 69 to earn full playing rights in next year's £3million tour.
The 50-year-old club professional at Richmond had to get up and down from a difficult bunker lie for his birdie four at the 18th.
After his 25 foot putt dropped he said: "That was the most important putt I have had to hole for a long time.
"I can't recall having to finish a round with so much at stake. I feel I have really earned the right to be back in tournament golf."
His six under par 282 and finished alongside former English table tennis international David Creamer (68) and Priscillo Diniz (69), a former Brazil Open champion from Sao Paulo.
The School's winner was American Jay Horton, professional at the Detroit Country Club, who closed with a 69 for a 10-under-par 278.
Horton finished a shot ahead of Seiji Ebihara from Tokyo, a former regular winner on the Japanese Tour, who led a strong group of five fellow countrymen at the School, all of them finishing in the top 20. Ebihara shot 68 for 279.
