Scott Gregory told of his delight after winning his maiden European Tour card.
The Corhampton Golf Club ace bagged a top-25 spot at Q School on Thursday – ensuring he’ll rub shoulders with the world's best on a weekly basis next year.
Gregory carded a 19-under (409) score for his six rounds at Spain's Lumine Golf Club, finishing 12th overall.
To win a European Tour card was his target at the start of the season – although he wanted to do it via the Challenge Tour rather than Q School.
Nevertheless, the former Crookhorn College pupil is over the moon having achieved his goal.
Gregory said: ‘It’s amazing to get my European Tour card.
‘It was my goal at the start of the year. Obviously, I didn’t want to do it through Q School, I wanted to do it through the Challenge Tour.
‘But to still have completed my goal is fantastic, especially after everything that happened this year.’
