India's Himmat Rai and Sujjan Singh grabbed their Asian Tour cards with a fine showing in the final round of the Asian Tour Qualifying School here today.

Himmat, who after finishing 76th on Money list failed to keep his card in 2010, shot a stunning seven-under 65 for a total of 12-under 276 to finish tied fifth.

As Himmat improved from overnight 31st to tied fifth, Sujjan also moved up from tied 26th to tied 21st with a second successive 69 that gave him a final total of nine-under 279.

The third Indian in the fray, Abhishek Jha, shot a 72 and ended at three-under 285 in tied 62nd place, down from overnight 54th.

Brazilian Lucas Lee overcame a nervy finish over the last five holes to win the Asian Tour Qualifying School Final Stage. Lee was 97th on the Money List last year.
