Moseley overcomes disappointment to regain Euro card
BY Bruce Young | European Challenge Tour | 2004 European Tour Q-School - Final Stage | Wrap | 17 Nov 2004
With the last of six rounds of finals golf completed today at the European Qualifying School, only Jarrod Moseley, amongst the many Australasians who started the week, has made it through to next years European Tour. Moseley’s last round of 70 was good enough to see him improve from 44th overnight to finish 25th and he regains full playing rights for 2005. A last hole birdie confirmed his place but he made it by two shots.
The 34-year-old from Perth had his worst of six seasons on the European Tour this year finishing 117th, only two places from the number that would have seen him avoid this process. His last round of 70 here however, on a golf course that proved to be quite a test all week, got the job done and he will head back to Australia a relieved man. After missing the top 115 by just €13 three weeks ago in Madrid, Moseley was at the point where he was considering not even trying to regain his card but is now no doubt very pleased he did.
Other Australasians who had a chance today were Adam Groom, who despite a solid round today missed by an agonising one shot to finish 40th. A missed short putt at his 17th hole will haunt him for some time. Paul Marantz who finished 55th after going through all stages and New Zealander Gareth Paddison, who needed a 70 today but could only manage a 77 to finish in 72nd place.
