Midlander Robert Rock booked his place in this week's final of the European Tour's qualifying school in Spain.
Rock was a joint-leader in stage two at the Emporda club near Girona to earn his place in the six-round tour school final, which begins on Thursday at San Roque on the Costa del Sol. A total of 30 cards for the 2006 European circuit will be on offer.
The 28-year-old, who is attached to The Belfry and finished fourth in the 2003 British Masters, carded rounds of 70, 63, 68 and 69, to share first place with Frenchman Cedric Menut, Germany's Kariem Baraka and Marco Crespi of Italy on ten-under-par.
Rock's countrymen Simon Hurd, Jamie Little and Sam Osborne also progressed but fellow Midlander Mark Mouland, a two-time winner on the European Tour, missed out.
The Kenilworth man was beaten in a play-off for the final two places.
Kenilworth's Jamie Elson also failed to qualifying at Costa Ballena. He finished on two- under- par 290 after rounds of 69, 71, 74 and 76, but was way off the pace set by Glasgow's Andrew McArthur.
The former Scottish amateur champion, who joined the paid ranks in September, finished on 16-under 272 to win by three strokes from Holland's Ralph Miller.
Walker Cup player Gary Lockerbie and Irishman Eamonn Brady also qualified while Welshman James Williams held his nerve in a play-off to progress.
Frenchman Julien Quesne topped the leaderboard at the PGA Golf de Catalunya near Barcelona, four shots ahead of Sweden's Henrik Nystrom. English duo Kieran Staunton and Phil Worthington shared fifth place.
