France’s Lambert Cochet is the only non British player to win one of the 3 first Q School stage on America course. Englishmen Reece Philips and Ollie Roberts won on Europa course and James Adams on Asia course.

Gusts of wind changed the rules of play for this second and last round of Q School Stage 1. All courses defended themselves very well and only 6 players shot under par today, four on Asia course and 2 on Europa.

Cochet shot 74 and finished +1 total to overpass the overnight leader on America course Scotland’s John Gallagher. James Adams fired 68 on Asia course today after his 69 of yesterday, he is the only player who shot under par both rounds.

“Been a great few days, made even better by some good golf showing up! Very fun and tricky course in quality condition, looking forward to final Qualifying and another week out of rainy England!”

His countrymen Reece Philips and Ollie Roberts won on Europa course with -2 total.

The 42 spots on Asia and 22 on America have been earned but the darkness forced the last two players involved in a play off on Europa course (29 spots) to stop the game. Belgium’s Nicholas Makhoul and France’s Mickaël Almeida already played 7 extra holes 10th-11th-17th-18th-10th-11th-17th and no one took advantage. The game will resume at 9:00 tomorrow morning.
