WATCH: Tour pro loses card in most brutal way (!) imaginable

The Qatar Masters represented the last chance saloon for many golfers hoping to retain their DP World Tour cards for the 2024 season. 

Frenchman Alex Levy, who has been battling some niggling injuries in recent years, was just one of many players with their fate unknown. 

The 33-year-old arrived at Doha GC just outside of the 116-man bubble of those wanting to qualify for the postseason and also keep their tour cards.

Levy was battling to make the cut to have any chance of the above. Then things got a little bit mad. 

First, he lipped out for a hole-in-one on the par-3 17th. Then he lipped out for birdie at the par-5 18th to officially end his chances. 


When the weekend concluded, Levy finished 126th in the Race to Dubai Rankings. 

It means he'll have to go back to qualifying school. In a classy post-round interview, he vowed to do just that. 

"I gave it everything I had today," he said. "It's golf. It's such a difficult game. I have nothing to say. I gave 100 per cent."


Finland's Sami Välimäki won the tournament, claiming his first victory in nearly three years. 

Among those who just about managed to keep their tour cards were England's Ross Fisher and Scotland's Scott Jamieson. 

The direct bubble boy was South Africa's Daniel Van Tonder.
