Geelong & # 39; s Deyen Lawson has obtained a European Tour card.
Australia has two new European Tour players.
Geelong & # 39; s Deyen "Digger" Lawson and Adelaide's Nick Cullen, two completely modest and popular professionals, have earned their 2019 high-performance cards in the final stage of Q-school in Spain. at night.
Both gentlemen, who have plowed on many different tours this season in search of a house that fits their talents, will now form a new basis that will do after finishing in a share of 13, well within the required top 25.
Through six marathon rounds of exceptional golf, neither Aussie had a round of more than 71 and while they completed six shots on the drv of fellow mediators Alejandro Canizares, of Spain and South African Zander Lombard, neither of them doubted the last hole.
Lawson, a product of a PGA traineeship at Curlewis Golf Club on the Bellarine Peninsula, had no blemish after a double bogey on the 12th hole in his fourth round until the seventh hole of his overnight finale
He then wobbled with three bogeys in seven holes, but also found three birdies in his closing 10 holes to finish two shots within the safe zone.
Cullen, a proud South Australian in Atlanta with his partner, was remarkably solid.
The former Australian Masters champion made his last bogey on the 12th hole of his fourth round, meaning he closed with 42 holes par or better.
His closing 69 today will also give the left-handed security after having clocked more frequent flyer miles in recent years than all his professional peers while he was looking for a solid base
The two have started at the Australian Open in Sydney this week, but the bet has really paid off.
