GRADUATED: Dylan Perry has secured playing rights on the Japanese Tour for 2019.
It was not his best lap, but the Dylan Perry of the Hunter Valley secured the right to play on the Japanese Tour for 2019.
Perry, who made his professional debut at the AVJennings NSW Open last month, could only do an equally par final round of 72 man hours, but it was enough to finish in a draw for the 20th place and to grab the 22nd card on a countback, with the top 25 players who have the right to play playing rights next year.
"I'm not sure how much I'm getting, but it feels good to get a card," Perry said.
The second best Aussie in the field was Sydneysider Andrew Evans, who won a final round 68 in a draw for the 31st and in any case secured himself a status on the lucrative tour for next year.
The Kiwi couple from Harry Bateman and Ben Campbell finished 42nd at the age of 13, far behind the target, while Cronulla & Scott's shot one of the rounds of the day, a seven-under-65. It was too little, too late, however, as his disappointing beginning of the week proved too difficult to overcome.
Of the other Aussies fighting in the final stage, Western-Australian Scott Strange finished in 63rd and Neven Basic finished 91th.
The first event in the Japanese Tour is the Co-Sanctioned Singapore Open in mid-January.
