Tim Rice and Chris Carroll eased through to the last day of EuroPro Q School 2021 Final Stage supported by Sky Sports at Stoke by Nayland Hotel, Golf & Spa, ensuring themselves status for next season.
The highest category available from Q School this week is category three. This goes to those who finish inside the top 30 overall after Friday. Thereafter, players 31–60 and ties get category six. 61-80 and ties category 10.
Northern Ireland’s Carroll finds himself in prime position after adding a five-under 67 to his opening 68 to reach eight-under par, good enough for a tie for 11th ahead of the final day.
Limerick professional Rice is also well placed inside the top-30 in a tie for 27th after adding a two-under 70 to his opening 68 to sit at five-under.
With the cut to the top-80 advancing to the final day falling at one-under par, many Irish hopefuls fell short of the required mark. Whitehead’s John Ross Galbraith fell one shot shy at even with Daniel Mulligan, Kilkenny’s Luke Donnelly and Galway’s Ronan Mullarney also narrowly missing out at plus-one.
