Campillo and Larrazábal, Spanish strengths in Andalusia

The two golfers will be the main Spanish assets in the Estrella Damm Andalucía Masters, which will be held at the Real Club Valderrama de San Roque.


Pablo Larrazábal and Jorge Campillo are the most outstanding players of the Spanish representation that will be measured from this Thursday to Sunday against the great favorites in the Estrella Damm Andalucía Masters, the only tournament on the European Golf Circuit to be held this year in Spain, in the Real Club Valderrama, in the Cadiz town of San Roque.

The man from Barcelona and from Cáceres have already savored success in this edition of the 'Race to Dubai', as Larrazábal won the Alfred Dunhill Championship last November and Campillo won his second continental circuit title at the Commercial Bank Qatar tournament Masters.

Britain's Lee Westwood, Danish Thomas Bjrn and German Martin Kaymer will be among the main candidates for victory.

These players are three of the ten players with Ryder Cup experience, joining Victor Dubuisson, Soren Kjeldsen, Andy Sullivan, Edoardo Molinari, Thorbjorn Olesen, David Howell and Peter Hanson.

Bernd Wiesberger, winner of seven titles on the European Tour, three of them achieved in 2019, is another player to look out for.

The South African Christiaan Bezuidenhout managed to prevail with solvency in the 2019 edition despite the resistance of the Spanish players, who took five of the first seven places.

With the sixth edition of the Valderrama tournament, Andalusia adds 61 international men's tournaments held on its golf courses and stands out as the region of continental Europe that has hosted the most events on the European Tour.

Since 1966, the best players in the world have passed through the Andalusian community to play twenty-one editions of the Volvo Masters, eleven of the Andalusian Open, as many of the Spain, six of the Estrella Damm NA Andalusia Masters, three Volvo World Match Play Championship, three World Cups, two World Golf Championships and four open tournaments of different denominations.

The 1997 Ryder Cup, in which Cantabrian Seve Ballesteros captained the European team to an epic victory against the United States, was the most important tournament ever played in Andalusia

The Andalusian community also stands out as a golf destination for amateur players. The region has more than one hundred courses (almost 21% of national facilities) that attracted some 560,000 tourists in 2017, most of them British, Nordic, German and Spanish.
