Zander Lombard moved up to 106th in the European Tour’s Race to Dubai rankings with his fifth place finish in the Porsche European Open at the weekend, and that was a solid step towards retaining his card for the following year. It was a climb of 27 positions for Lombard, and, with enough tournaments ahead of the Final Series, if he can put together another few decent finishes, he will finish comfortably inside the top 100 and secure his playing privileges for the 2018 season. It was his best performance since his second place in the Rocco Forte Open in Sicily in May, after which he missed three cuts in six tournaments, and was unable to break into the top 30 in the other three.
