Woodhall Spa golfer Kimsey earns his place on the European Tour - in tremendous style
The former Walker Cup star produced the performance of his career to win the Tour’s qualifying school in Spain earlier today (Thursday).
Played over a marathon six rounds, Kimsey came out on top with a total of 13 under par.
It was a remarkable performance from the Woodhall Spa man as several big name players finished well-down the field and failed to clinch a card.
What’s even more amazing is that Kimsey’s success comes after a difficult year on the European Tour’s satellite circuit.
The qualifying school was played at the PGA Catalunya Rest course - one of Europe’s top lay-outs.
Kimsey boosted his hopes in the fourth round with a birdied laced 61, believed to be the lowest round of the week.
With two rounds left, he slipped back to second place yesterday (Wednesday) with a one-over par effort.
However, he showed his strength and steel over the final 18 holes today to triumph.
Kimsey (23) said: I can’t quite put it into words really.”
He was cheered on by his dad Paul while an army of friends watched his progress back in Woodhall Spa.
