This year’s Open de España will count with many top pro players within the top 100 World Ranking.
This event is part of the European Professional Circuit and will be held in the PGA Catalunya Resort between May 15th and May 18th.
At the top of the list we see three of the best players in the world, and perhaps the most awaited to be seen playing. They are Sergio García, Miguel Ángel Jiménez and Gonzalo Fernández Castaño, number 8, 33 and 47 respectively in the world ranking
Pablo Larrazábal (#62), Rafael Cabrera (#95) and Alejandro Cañizares (#101) will also be attending this event, completing the incredible team of players that will be representing Spain in this year’s Open de España.
Pablo Larrazábal from Barcelona considers this event one of the most important for him. Apart from the Majors, this is his favorite event, especially now that it will take place in an excellent golf course such as the PGA Catalunya Resort.
This Catalan golfer has recently succeeded in the European Circuit, particularly in the Abu Dhabi Golf Championship held this past month of January, with also victories from Sergio García, Miguel Ángel Jiménez and Alejandro Cañizares.
Pablo obtained the European Tour card through the Qualification School in 2007, having a strong start just a few months after when he won the Open of France in 2008.
He later went into winning the BMW International Championship in 2011, standing out as one of the best players in the world, and finishing in second place in the Open de España 2012.
On the other hand, Rafael Cabrera was fourth in the Open de España 2002 while he was still in the amateur level. He also went into winning all the possible titles within the Spanish Championships from benjamin to junior categories.
The Open de España 2014 fits within the Professional European Circuit and the company Reale Seguros sponsors it.
Furthermore in this occasion the Generalitat de Catalunya also supports this event through its Ministries of Sport and Tourism.
Additionally, PGA Catalunya Resort itself, together with the Diputació de Girona, Patronat de Turisme Costa Brava Girona, Ajuntament de Girona, Ajuntament de Caldes de Malavella, Federación Catalana de Golf and Consejo Superior de Deportes, and the RFEG Sponsoring Club lead by Reale Seguros, will make posible the celebration of this Open de España 2014.
