Warren Brilliantly Ignites The Golfing Fireworks Qualifying For Final Qualifying Two Rounds

Scot Marc Warren brilliantly ignited the golfing fireworks over his closing eight holes and muscle his way into the last two rounds of Final Qualifying at Tarragona in Spain.

Warren, 42, was forced to head to Spain after finishing the regular DP World Tour season 121st on the Race to Dubai money list and five places shy of retaining membership.

The four-time Tour winner posted opening three round scores of 69, 72 and 73 before igniting a magic scoring Monday at his 11th hole with an eagle ‘3’ and then birdied four in succession from his 13th ahead of a birdie at the last.

Warren’s six-under 66 on the Infinitum course saw him leap 46 spots and into a share of 53rd place at six-under, and two shots inside the four-under cut-off mark.

The Glaswegian now needs to finish among the leading 25 at the close of tomorrow’s (WED) sixth and final round if he’s to regain full 2024 DP World Tour Championship.

Joining Warren in the closing two rounds is Kingsbarns Links attached, Daniel Young who posted a fourth round 70 to be sharing 31st place on nine-under.

Young, who’s spent more time the last four years on the secondary Challenge Tour, said: “It wasn’t my best golf out there today but I wasn’t in any trouble, though very much a boring round of golf with a lot of pars.

“The good thing is that I have played really smartly over these four rounds and I’m really minimizing mistakes.

“That’s where I have struggled a lot this year playing the Challenge Tour, and making too many mistakes and shooting myself out of events when in good positions.

“I’m proud of how patient I’ve been this week but now with two rounds left, it’s time to get the skates on and get more aggressive, as there’s nothing to lose now”.

Missing out was Peebles Craig Howie (four-under tally), Calum Fife and Callum McNeill (each three-under) with Oliver Roberts a further shot back and Ryan Lumdsen slumping to 10-over.
