7 Days in Dubai - - SPORT -

Al­varo Quiros and Ed­die Pep­perell both failed to se­cure their Euro­pean Tour cards af­ter fin­ish­ing out­side the top 111 in the Race to Dubai rank­ings. Spain’s Quiros earned only one top-10 fin­ish in 23 starts this sea­son, while Eng­land’s Ed­die Pep­perell also lost his card af­ter a dou­ble bo­gey on his fi­nal hole in the Por­tu­gal Masters saw him slip down to 114th in the stand­ings. Graeme Storm also lost out thanks to a bo­gey on the 18th, a costly re­sult that saw David How­ell claim the all im­por­tant 111th spot and keep his Euro­pean Tour card. Ital­ian Edoardo Moli­nari, who played in the 2010 Ry­der Cup, also fin­ished out­side the top 110 but keeps his card due to an in­jury ex­emp­tion. While there was dis­ap­point­ment for many in Por­tu­gal, Mikko Korho­nen han­dled the pres­sure su­perbly as he fin­ished third to move from 116th to 86th.
