Mixed Australasian fortunes at European Q-School

After the completion of three of the six rounds at the European Tour School’s Final Stage, there have been mixed fortunes for the twelve Australasians in Spain.
48-year-old Peter Senior and Canberra’s Matthew Millar lead the way for the Australasian contingent with 54 hole totals of 3 under and are in 13th position. They trail the third round leaders, Luis Claverie and Pablo Larrazabal by five shots.
Scott Barr lost ground after a promising start to the week, his third round of 76 dropping him to a share of 36th place with South Australian Adam Bland and New Zealander Gareth Paddison, who advanced his cause with a third round of 70, one of the best rounds of the day on the Old Course at the San Roque Golf Club.
Terry Pilkadaris is 46th, David Bransdon 88th, Gavin Flint and Wade Ormsby 100th, Jarrod Moseley 120th and Steve Alker and Adam Blyth 134th.
At the completion of Sunday’s fourth round a cut will be made to the top 70 and ties before the tension increases over the final 36 holes as those 70 or so players vie for one of the prized thirty cards on offer for the 2008 European Tour.
The event is being played over the Old and New courses at the San Roque Golf Club in Cadiz in Spain.
