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.
