RICHARD Bland and Sam Hutsby have earned European Tour cards for the 2012 season, after securing top five finishes at qualifying school.
Liphook member Hutsby ended the nerve-shredding six-round event in Spain on 20-under-par, to come second - just one shot behind winner David Dixon.
Stoneham's Bland came home in fourth place, after posting a total of 18-under for the tournament, which represented the last chance for golfers to secure playing rights on the main Tour next year.
