CAPITAL duo Neil Fenwick and Gareth Wright both want another bite at the cherry after falling agonisingly short in their bids to become European Tour players.

After a marathon 12 rounds over three stages, it was the end of the road for the pair at the Qualifying School in Girona along with Raymond Russell.

Fenwick failed to make the final 36 holes at PGA Catalunya despite a battling 66. It hoisted him to two-over but the 72-hole cut fell at two-under.

Russell was three below that mark despite a 64 while Wright, after being inside the card-clinching zone after two rounds, was well adrift on five-over.

“I have learnt a lot about my game and myself and I am definitely not far away from where I want to be,” said Fenwick.

“I’m hoping to play a fair number of events on the Challenge Tour next year and progress from there.”

A disappointed Wright added: “The last two days were not how I had hoped things would go, but I think that mentally I just became a little jaded. I have a category on the Challenge Tour, though, and I might try and get a little bit of sponsorship and see if I can play a few more events next season.”
