Lucas Herbert finished tied for 62nd at the Scottish Open on the European Tour.
Opening rounds of 67 and 66 had Herbert well placed to push for a top-20 finish at The Renaissance Club in North Berwick.
However, he couldn't replicate the low scores over the weekend and rounds of 72 and 70 saw him finish nine-under par for the tournament - 13 shots behind winner Bernd Wiesberger.
Herbert had a new caddie on the bag for the Scottish Open, with his Neangar Park Golf Club mate Sam Baker making the trip from Bendigo to Scotland.
The result in Scotland saw Herbert slip three places to 115th in the Race to Dubai Rankings.
After earning 14 points in Scotland, Herbert has 284 points - 14 behind the 110th ranked golfer.
He needs to be inside the top 110 at the end of the season to retain his tour card for 2020.
Herbert will return to Australia for a mid-season break. The next European Tour event he is eligible to play is the Czech Masters on August 15.
