Grand Final ends in heartbreak

Taking part in the Challenge Tour season ending finale in Oman were Champions of Golf ambassadors Scott Henry and Scott Arnold. With a lot of work to do in order to break into the top 15 on the Order of Merit both of them had to have strong weeks in a bid to regain their full European Tour playing rights for 2016.

For the Aussie former world number one amateur and Ping ambassador Scott Arnold the task was almost impossible and nothing short of a win would secure his privileges and sadly for him that wasn't meant to be eventually coming home in 42nd position and finishing 33rd on the season ending Order of Merit.

The task ahead of Craig Group, Aberdeen Asset Management, Callaway Golf and Luke Sport ambassador Scott Henry was a little more straightforward, he needed to finish as high as he could inside the top 5 and hope that his closest rivals in the Order of Merit finished below him. Sadly, and even despite a final round 67, proving he is more than capable of performing under the pressure, he fell just over 3,000Euro short of achieving his dream and in 18th position was marginally short of gaining his card.

Following their seasons on the Challenge Tour both Scott's are entitled to some starts on the main European Tour however they will both be appearing at this weeks European Tour Qualifying School at PGA Catalunya Resort in Spain in a bid to gain their full playing rights, the last chance to do so this season.

Good luck boys!
