Scottish duo Steven O'Hara and Gary Orr secured their places on next season's European Tour, via the Qualifying School Final Stage.

With 30 places up for grabs over a six rounds at the PGA Catalunya Resort in Girona, Spain, both men finished in the top 10.

England's David Dixon topped the standings on 21 under par.

O'Hara, from Motherwell, finished on 17 under, with Helensburgh's Orr two shots further behind.

A recurring back injury limited Orr to 11 appearances in 2010 and earned him a season-long medical exemption for 2011.

However, Orr played in 22 events this season, with his best finish a fourth place at the KLM Open in the Netherlands.

O'Hara began his campaign well, claiming fourth at the Africa Open in January, with his only other top 10 finish coming at the Czech Open in August.
