Adelaide’s Wade Ormsby has all but locked in his European Tour card for season 2018.
After flying from a T5 finish at last week's Fiji International, Ormsby jetted all the way to the Made In Denmark in Farso where he locked in another top-notch share of sixth at 12 under, seven shots behind runaway winner, American Julian Suri.
Veteran Richard Green closed with a three-under-par 68 to finish T31 at six under, while fellow Victorian Ben Eccles banked a nice cheque with a T49 finish.
But it was the South Australian who made the biggest splash with his third top-10 finish of the year.
The 37-year old had stormed to a share of the lead on day one thanks to a sizzling 64 and while he shot a second-round 72, Ormsby regrouped well to add rounds of 67 and 69, including an eagle on the par-five fourth today.
The result moves Ormsby to 89th on the Race to Dubai rankings, with the top 115 guaranteed cards.
However, Ormsby has jumped to 89th on the Race to Dubai money list and looking, not only for that long overdue first Tour success, but also record his best season on the European Tour since being ranked 51st in 2014.
And boosting Ormsby’s assurance of earning 2018 tour membership is that he also is ranked fourth on the Rolex Series ‘Finals Access List’ of top-10 players not otherwise exempt who will automatically earn membership after the season.
While Ormsby is ranked 66th overall on the Rolex Series that runs concurrently with the Race to Dubai, the European Tour has offered this additional membership carrot for the likes of Ormsby who do not qualify for what the Tour describes as the "most lucrative" events such as the four majors, the four WGCs and the six-event Rolex Series.
And with Ormsby now inside the top 115, he still has guaranteed starts in at least eight of the dozen events remaining on the 2017 Race to Dubai schedule to move further up the standings and potentially break into top 60 who qualify him for the season-ending DP World Tour Championship.
