The Final Stage of The European Tour’s Qualifying School reached its annual, dramatic conclusion at the San Roque Club, with a total of 32 players gaining entry onto The 2006 European Tour after one of golf’s most testing 108 hole examinations.

Argentina’s Miguel Carballo produced the kind of performance that dreams are made of to secure his playing privileges to The 2006 European Tour.

With three holes to play of the New Course’s front nine (he began the final round from the tenth tee), Carballo was six over par and two shots outside the all important four over mark that was looking the likely cut-off point for the top 30 players and ties.

A birdie on the par five seventh set Carballo up for a thrilling finish, which he conjured in unbelievable fashion, holing his four iron tee shot on the par three eighth before birdieing the last to finish four-one-three and guarantee himself the 17th card with a two over par total.

Not bad, eh?

Pretty cool finish...I am sure he broke a couple of hearts along the way too.
