England's John Parry is back in the big time after winning European Tour Qualifying School at PGA Catalunya.

The Harrogate pro, a winner on the European Tour in 2010 when taking victory at the Vivendi Cup, will once again be contesting the Race To Dubai after completing a four-shot victory.

Parry completed the gruelling six-round slog at the Stadium Course with a closing two-under 70 for a winning total of 19-under.

It made him the fourth consecutive English winner of the Q-School, after David Dixon (2011), Simon Wakefield (2010) and Simon Khan (2009).

"I'm delighted," said Parry. "I knew I had my card sewn up before today started, but I was going for the win and I'm happy to have got the job done."

Sweden's Mikael Lundberg also regained his card after as a 69 took him into second place on 15-under while England's Andy Sullivan was third on 13-under.

In total, 28 players earned their playing rights for The 2013 European Tour International Schedule.

Young Englishman Chris Lloyd saved the best until last with a five under par 67 to make a late jump into the qualifying spots, and Scot Callum Macaulay holed fantastic putts on the 17th and 18th greens to finish on six under par, one shot inside the mark.

However, another Scotsman, George Murray, was in despair after missing a short putt on the last, a double bogey meaning he missed out by one shot.

Former Ryder Cup player Oliver Wilson finished with a level par 72 and a three under par aggregate score, two shy of the required mark. Scotsman Gary Orr became the oldest player to win a card at the Qualifying School Final Stage, at 45 years and 202 days, 20 years after he first achieved the feat.
