Jay Horton wins European Seniors Q School

American Jay Horton shot a third successive 69 Saturday to win the 1999 European Seniors Tour Qualifying School.

Horton finished at 10-under-par and one stroke ahead of Seiji Ebihara. David Creamer and Nick Job and Priscillo Diniz tied on 6-under-par, with Creamer taking the third-place ranking with his lower final round of 68.

Job, a former European Tour player, birdied his final two holes for his 69 to earn full playing rights in next year's £3-million tour.

Job said: "That was the most important putt I have had to hole for a long time.

"I can't recall having to finish a round with so much at stake. I feel I have really earned the right to be back in tournament golf."
