New South Welshman Tim Stewart narrowly missed out on securing full status for the opening six tournaments of the PGA TOUR Series-China schedule with a final round of 2-under 68 in the First Global Qualifying Tournament at Foison Golf Club in Guangzhou.

Abdul Hadi from Singapore earned full status for 2019 by finishing two shots clear of the field with Stewart one shot outside those who earned status for the first six events of the year.

Stewart will have conditional status courtesy of his tie for 15th with fellow Aussies Aaron Pike, Hayden Webb, Adam Blyth and Ryan Ruffels along with Kiwi pair Sam An and Victor Janin also securing limited status by finishing inside the top 35.

Seven Australians will contest the Second Global Qualifying Tournament – also to be played at Foison Golf Club – starting Tuesday.
