There was only limited success for the Australians at the Final Stage of Qualifying for the 2018 Ladies European Tour at the Palmgolf and Ourika & Amelkis Golf Club in Morocco.

Amy Walsh and Paige Stubbs missed out on full status granted to those finishing inside the top 25 at the Lalla Aicha Tour School although Walsh will earn conditional status by finishing inside the top 60.

The leading 25 players earned the right to play with full status on the Ladies European Tour while those finishing between 26th and 60th earned partial status.

Walsh, 21, fired rounds of 72, 73, 71, 73, 73 to finish at +2 after five rounds which was six shots outside the top-25.

Hailing from Robina on the Gold Coast and a professional for two years, Walsh should be able to access events such as the two in the Coffs Harbour region in Australia following the Women’s Australian Open but not having full status will restrict her progress unless she can perform well from limited opportunity.  

Posting via her Instagram account, Walsh said she is still optimistic about having opportunities to take advantage of next year.


25-year-old Sydneysider Stubbs finished 78th and misses out on any status.

New Zealander Chantelle Cassidy was also in the field and finished just outside those gaining partial status in a share of 65th position.
