Hempel delighted after Tour Card triumph on Day Three of European Q-School: "I did not expect to be able to win one of the four days"
Hempel, a former handball player, joins Geert de Vos and Geert Nentjes in coming through outright after a brilliant day which saw him average between 94-96 for the most part.
"I am so happy!" said Hempel. "I did not expect to be able to win one of the four days and get a direct Tour Card, but that makes it even better now.
"After my match against Lukas Wenig I started to think that there might be something special to come today. After that I always felt like I was in control of my matches and was that decisive bit better than my opponents."
