Six Europeans make it to PGA Tour Q-School
Welshman Philip Price is one of six European golfers to have played their way to a chance of a card on the USPGA.
Price, England's Brian Davis, Greg Owen and Sean Whiffen, Scot Alan McLean and Dane Soren Kjeldsen all earned places in the end-of-season US Tour qualifying school finals at the beginning of December.
European Ryder Cup hero at the Belfry in 2002, Price earned his spot in the qualifying finals field courtesy of a second place finish in a field of 77 playing at McKinney, Texas, from where McLean also qualified.
But Canada-based McLean squeezed in by the skin of his teeth, finishing joint 16th on six-over par, with only the top 17 names qualifying.
Englishman Davis was third at Panama City, Florida thanks to a four round total of eight-under par, with Kjeldsen and Owen finishing fifth and sixth at the same venue.
Whiffen, from Hertfordshire in England, was also eighth in Florida, with the lowest 20 scores emerging to take part in the finals at the PGA West Stadium Course and Nicklaus Tournament Course in La Quinta, California.
Scotland's Volvo PGA champion Scott Drummond was one European though that failed to qualify with opening rounds of 79, 76 and 76.
At 15-over par in Florida, Drummond withdrew to concentrate on this week's World Cup in Seville where he partners Alastair Forsyth.
