The European Tour’s Qualifying School, one of the toughest tests in golf, will return this September when eight stunning venues host more than 700 golfers hoping to fulfil their dreams of competing in The Race to Dubai. READ MORE
FUELLED by the likes of Peter Uihlein and Brooks Koepka tasting success on this side of the Atlantic, a record number of Americans have entered this season’s European Tour Qualifying School.
Eighty-six United States players – double last year’s total – are set to compete in eight first stage events across Europe in the next few weeks as around 800 hopefuls start the long journey in a bid to be taking part in the 2014 Race to Dubai.
Next week’s event at The Roxburghe near Kelso, where the majority of Scots will be hoping to safely negotiate their first hurdle, includes seven Americans, some of whom have a decent pedigree. Cliff Kresge, for instance, finished joint tenth in the 2003 US Open and has won three times on the second-tier Web.com Tour in the States, while Brendan Gielow was a member of the winning US side in the 2009 Walker Cup at Merion. His team-mates there included Rickie Fowler and Uihlein, who raised eyebrows when he opted to start his professional career in Europe but, along with Koepka, this year’s Scottish Challenge winner, has quickly vindicated that decision by graduating from the Challenge Tour to the main circuit.
