Callum Shinkwin has moved up two places to 36th in the Race to Dubai rankings with two tournaments in the European Tour season remaining after finishing in a tie for 16th at the Turkish Airlines Open.

The Bushey golfer fired a two-under-par closing round of 69 yesterday to finish alongside Stephen Gallacher, Tyrrell Hatton and Joost Luiten, eight shots behind winner Justin Rose.

But Moor Park club-mate Matt Wallace’s hopes of making the World Tour Championship now rest on his performance in this week’s Nedbank Golf Challenge.

The top-60 in the Race to Dubai are assured of a place at the season-ending finale, but the 27-year-old has dropped from 61st to 68th after finishing in a tie for 54th at Regnum Carya Resort.

Back-to-back rounds of 67, following his level-par first 18 holes, had put Shinkwin in contention for a high finish at the premier Rolex Series event and he started well, picking up birdies at the par four third and fifth holes, but dropped a shot at the par three sixth.

This year’s Scottish Open runner-up moved back to ten-under with a third birdie of the day at the par four 11th. Although Shinkwin made a bogey five at 13, an eagle three at 15 saw him move to 11-under, but he had to settle for a two-under-par final round following a bogey five at 17.

Wallace also shot a 69 yesterday – his best round of the event – to finish on level par for the tournament after making four birdies and two bogeys.

The Pinner golfer is now 30,728 points shy of 60th place but such is the level of prize money available at the seventh Rolex Series event of the year, a strong showing in South Africa should see him secure a place in the field for Dubai just six months after gaining his European Tour card.
