McVeigh in mix for dual cards

CURTIS CUP ace Danielle McVeigh is still on course to win her Ladies Tour card on two continents after easily graduating yesterday for Europe's Q-School final.

A fourth-round one-over-par 72 on the North Course at La Manga was enough to ease the 22-year-old Co Down amateur through to final qualifying for the European Tour in a tie for 28th on 11-over par.

McVeigh now heads to Florida and final qualifying for America's LPGA Tour before returning to La Manga in a fortnight to join a 105-strong field bidding for 30 European Tour cards over five rounds from December 15-20.

Tara Delaney missed out, a final-round 76 on the South Course at La Manga leaving her tied for 46th, outside the top 35 .
