England's Ross Fisher earned a PGA Tour card for the 2013 season after finishing in a share of second place at the final stage of Q-School.

The 32-year-old, who is a four-time winner on the European Tour, carded a final round of 66 in La Quinta to comfortably claim the top-25 finish - including ties - required to be granted qualification.

The tournament was won by Korea's Dong-hwan Lee, who completed the six rounds in a total of 407 strokes to finish on of 25-under par. Steve LeBrun and Kris Blanks shared second with Fisher on 24 under.

Swedish veteran Robert Karlsson also qualified after finishing in a tie for 14th position. But Fisher's fellow Englishman Oliver Fisher missed out by just one shot after an erratic final round of 69 finished in agonising style with a bogey at the last.

Si Woo Kim became the youngest player ever to graduate from Q-School at the age of 17 years and five months as he finished in a tie for 20th.

Among the notable players to miss out were Colombia's Camilo Villegas, Indian Arjun Atwal and Americans Heath Slocum and Derek Lamely, who have all won PGA Tour events as recently as 2010.

Vaughn Taylor and Paul Stankowski, both two-time winners on the PGA Tour, also failed to make the qualifying cut.
