The Felixstowe Driving Range professional, Suffolk PGA champion on 13 occasions in the past, had two shots to spare in stage one after rounds of 75 and 76 on a course that was playing long. Three other PGA East Region players also qualified for this week's final stage at Pinta Golf Club. They were Glyn Krause, Mitch Kierstenson and Bill McColl.

Victor Garcia, Sergio's father, missed cut at Pinheiros Altos, the other venue being used.
