75 players from 18 nationalities have joined others exempted of last week’s First Stage to participate starting tomorrow through Saturday in the Final qualifying Stage of the Alps Tour Q School at La Cala Resort, Spain.
At the end of the Final qualifying Stage, 35 players will obtain a category 6 which means for them a guaranteed spot in all the tournaments of the Alps Tour during the 2019 season.
The Final qualifying Stage is played over 54 holes of traditional stoke. Following a cut after 36 holes played on the Asia and America courses, the top 65 players and ties will qualify for the last day of the Final qualifying Stage to be played on the Asia course.
The Alps Tour represents a great training ground for rising golf stars. Frenchman Victor Perez finished in 2nd place of the 2015 Final qualifying Stage. Perez ended the 2018 Challenge Tour season in 3rd place overall and will play next year on the European Tour along with many other players who have once played on the Alps Tour.
