Chris Doak's safety-first approach paid off in Australia as he confirmed his place on the European Tour for next season.

The former Tartan Tour No.1 had all but secured his card with a share of eighth in the Portugal Masters,but made the long trek to the Perth International, the final regular event of the season, just to be sure.

Doak finished in a share of 36th place with a level-par 288 and moved up five places to 100th on the Race to Dubai rankings. The top 110 on the money list safeguarded their playing rights for 2014, but Scott Henry's hopes of avoiding a trip to the qualifying school faded as he finished alongside Doak.

The Clydebank rookie, fourth in the Johnnie Walker Championship at Gleneagles in August, needed a top-six finish to gatecrash the safety zone but his level-par aggregate only moved him up three places to 120th.

Craig Lee was the leading Scot in a tie for 28th on 286 and sits in 62nd place on the money list. The Stirling man can still improve his ranking, however, as he has a place in the lucrative Turkish Airlines Open next month, the penultimate event in the tour's $30 million Final Series.

At the sharp end of affairs in Australia, Korea's Jin Jeong, who beat Scotland's James Byrne in the final of the Amateur Championship at Muirfield in 2010, overcame Ross Fisher in a play-off to capture his maiden tour title.

Meanwhile, Rory McIlroy shot a final-round 67 to claim a share of second place at the Kolon Korea Open.

The Northern Irishman, who had fallen 10 shots behind the lead after three rounds, carded five birdies in his four-under-par round to end one behind winner Kang Sung-hoon.

McIlroy, the star attraction at the OneAsia Tour event, said: "I could have shot anything, absolutely anything.

"I only missed two greens and had so many chances, but it was like the story of Saturday - I just didn't hole enough putts."
