Hazelmere's Phil Jonas earned a full European Senior Tour card Thursday after moving up 12 spots to tied-for-fifth at a qualifying event in Portugal.

The 51-year-old Cloverdale teaching pro, who works out of the South Surrey golf course, as well as Richmond's McCleery course, was in a logjam for 17th place, one shot back of the top-14 golfers.

But after carding a score of 67 in the final round on the Pinta Course at Pestana Golf Resort on Portugal's Algarve coast, Jonas shot up to fifth place (tying with South Africa's Hendrik Buhrmann), earning him full privileges on the upcoming tour.

Jonas decided to give the European Senior Tour another shot following an impressive turn at last summer's Senior British Open at the Turnberry Golf Course in England.
