New Zealand golfers Cathryn Bristow and Emily Perry have safely negotiated their way through to the final stage of qualifying for the 2013 Ladies European Tour.

Bristow finished 13th in a 75-strong field at her pre-qualifying event in Marrakech, Morocco, after ending the four-round tournament on a six-under par total of 282 to easily make the cut. Six-over was the magic number, with 45 players progressing to the final stage.

Bristow, who dipped out at LPGA Tour Q-school last month, closed with a five-under 67 today to take some momentum into this week's final stage event at the same venue.

Perry, meanwhile, was tied for 20th in a 77-strong field, also at Marrakech, to also easily progress.

The former top amateur player had rounds of 70, 72, 72 and 72 to finish at two-under, eight shots above the cut mark of six-over which saw 46 players progress.

The five-round final stage tournament will also be held at the Amelkis Golf Club and Al Maaden Golf Resort, with the top 30 players and ties from a field of about 140 to earn full playing privileges for the 2013 tour.

Would you be happy to pay for PGA Tour coverage online?

Absolutely. I'll do whatever it takes to watch golf.

It depends on how good the service is.

If it's not on TV, I won't watch it.

What? The PGA Tour's not going to be on Sky TV?
