David Law hopes it will be third time lucky at the Q School's Final Stage

An eye-catching collection of seasoned professionals and young hopefuls have assembled at Lumine Golf Club, Tarragona in Spain, all bidding to earn European Tour cards at the Final Stage of Qualifying School.
The top 25 and ties will play in next season’s Race to Dubai after a marathon six rounds with Lumine’s Lakes and Hills courses playing host to the tournament for the first time, having previously been a Second Stage venue.
No fewer than 30 European Tour winners are in the 156-man field this week. There are also two former Ryder Cup players, Niclas Fasth and Oliver Wilson hoping to prolong their careers at the highest level in Europe.
Aberdeen's David Law could be viewed as the defending champion, having won Second Stage at Lumine 12 months ago. The Scot is aiming to end a difficult year with a good performance, having made the four-round cut but failed to earn a European Tour card at each of the last two years at Final Stage.

Said Law:
“I’ve been here a few times, played Second Stage for the last two years and the Challenge Tour were here a few years ago, so I know the course pretty well, and it’s in great condition this week.
“I’ve made it to Final Stage for the last two years and played all six rounds both times. Last year I felt like I tired a bit on the final couple of days, especially having been to Second Stage as well, so this year I’ve tried to take it a little easier and hopefully that will reflect in my play this week.
“It’s been a tough year to be honest, it’s not been great. There’s been a couple of little things going on, but it can all change pretty quickly and this would be a great week to do it.

“I’ve been playing pretty well in the last few 

events so I’m hopeful for this week. Two 

years ago I missed out by two shots; last year 

I was  going well but had a poor final day, so 

hopefully I can draw on those experiences 

this week and cope with it all a little better.” 

+The field of 108 will be cut the leading 70 and ties after 72 holes.
