Veteran Steve Allan has produced a blistering final round to jump 66 places up the leaderboard and regain Web.com Tour status for 2017.
Allan and Sydney's Jamie Arnold were among 10 Australians trying their luck at this week's Q-School at the Panther Lake and Crooked Cat courses in Florida.
Allan looked to have ruined his chances after a third round 76 that dropped him outside the top-100 on the leaderboard but a superb Sunday saw him sign for 11 shots less, his 65 making him comfortably the biggest mover on the final day.
The top-45 finishers at the four-day Q-School earn status for the 2017 season, Arnold posting a 7-under total for the week to be T19 and Allan sneaking into T35 with his final round heroics.
Arnold set up his week with an opening 67 then hung on bravely with scores of 72-71 and a final round 69 to ensure his place on the secondary Tour for 2017.
The winner of the Q-School earns a full card while those finishing 2nd to 10th on the leaderboard are guaranteed 12 starts.
Those finishing from 11th to 45th, including Arnold and Allan, are guaranteed starts until the second reshuffle of exemption categories, likely to be at least eight tournaments.
The news wasn't so good for the rest of the Australian contingent with Jordan Zunic, Oliver Goss, Damon Stephenson, Mark Hensby, Nick Flanagan, Nick Cullen, Aron Price and Max McCardle all missing out on the top-45.
They will all have conditional status for the 2017 season though that presents limited playing opportunities.
