England's Tom Whitehouse carded a four-under-par 68 to seal victory in the European Tour's qualifying school final at San Roque in Spain.

The 25-year-old, who had his father Colin caddying for him during the round, topped the 32 golfers who qualified for next season's tour.

"I didn't feel I was playing that great coming here but my dad was a massive influence," he said

"He made me feel so relaxed and I'm delighted to have won here."

Robert Rock finished two strokes behind in second place after closing with a 71, while early leader David Griffiths dropped back to third with a stuttering final round of 76.

Among the big-name qualifiers was former Ryder Cup player Jarmo Sandelin, who was 10th.

Former European Tour winners Malcolm Mackenzie and Raymond Russell of Britain, Swede Patrik Sjoland and Denmark's Anders S Hansen were among those who missed out.
