Deyen Lawson shot three rounds of 65 in Spain this week.

Geelong's Deyen Lawson heads three Australians to have progressed to the final stage of European Tour qualifying school.

Lawson, formerly a PGA of Australia trainee at Curlewis Golf Club, remarkably shot his third 65 of stage two qualifying at Desert Springs Golf Club in Almeria, Spain, today.

His 21 under total was not only good enough to win that venue, but also be the lowest total at all four locations.

Lawson, who recently finished T28 in his full European Tour debut at the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship, will be joined in the November 10-15 finale by fellow Geelong golfer Ben Eccles and Adelaide's Nick Cullen, who both advanced at the same venue.

Cullen played four consistent rounds to share fifth at 14 under, while Eccles was joint 10th at 11 under despite an opening 73.

Brett Rankin narrowly missed joining the 95 second stage qualifiers finishing at five under, while at Las Colinas, Bryden Macpherson withdrew after three rounds.

The Q-school finale will be played at Lumine Golf Club with a 156-strong field also featuring 61 exempt players.

Meanwhile, Melbourne's Brett Coletta has advanced through the second stage of the Web.Com Tour's q-school in Murrieta, California.

Coletta, who already has his Mackenzie Tour card in Canada for next year, eased into the December 6-9 finals in Arizona with a fifth place at the first of five tournaments to set up the decider's field.

Perth amateur Min Woo Lee, who will play this week at TPC Craig Ranch in McKinney, Texas, is the only other Australian at this stage of qualifying.
