Scott Gregory has his sights firmly set on securing a place on the European Tour.

Gregory, 24, made it through the opening two rounds of European Q school to seal a spot in the final stage.

Getting under way at Lumine Golf Club, Spain, on November 10, the Corhampton Golf Club ace will be looking finish in the top 25 – securing a place on the European Tour for next season.

A former British Amateur Championship winner, Gregory now wants to fulfil a lifelong ambition and compete alongside the best players from around the globe on a regular basis.

He said: 'It would mean the world to me (to make it on the European Tour). It's been a dream of mine since I started playing golf, pretty much.

'To get out there on the European Tour, going to watch Wentworth as a kid, to be able to do things like that would be immense.

'I've just got to keep doing what I'm doing, keep plugging away.

'If I play the golf I know I can then there shouldn't be an issue, but obviously there are a lot of others things that can happen, I'm just going to give it my best shot and take it from there.'  

No matter what happens in the European Q School final round, Gregory will have a place on the Challenge Tour next year.

But the Waterlooville ace does not want to settle on that once again.

Gregory competed at the US Open earlier this year but a wrist tendon injury made it a tough 2018 for him.

However, the 24-year-old wants to end what has been a difficult 12 months at times on a positive note.

He added: ‘I know at the very least I've got what I had this season, which is nice, but obviously I'd like to go and improve that.

‘To get through the first two stages of Q School has been good and my game is in good shape.

'Things that have not been there recently have been helping me out in the last couple of days, like driving and things like that.

‘I had a wrist injury, which was basically like a sprain of the tendon. After the US Open I didn't play for about six or seven weeks and I've not really played much coming into this really.

‘My confidence is building and I'm felling good going into this week.'
