Stage Set For 2017 Edition of the PGAs of Europe Fourball Championship2 min read


Posted on: 5th Feb 2017

Lumine Mediterránea Beach & Golf Club in Spain will once again play host to the PGAs of Europe’s Fourball Championship presented by the Costa Daurada with a maximum field of 120 PGA Professional pairs competing.

From the 6-8 February, 240 PGA Professionals will compete across three rounds battling to be crowned the 2017 Fourball Champions. 14 of the Association’s Member Countries will be represented in what promises to be a hugely competitive contest.

As expected, the PGA of Spain is strongly represented with 80 Professionals in the field, including last year’s winning pair of Gerard Piris Metau and Ivo Giner, who return to attempt to defend their title.

Also lining up are the 2015 winners, Matthew Cort and Craig Shave of the PGA of Great Britain & Ireland. Fellow GB&I Professional, Robert Coles, who was part of the winning pair in 2014, this year joins European Tour winner, Raymond Russell.

Xaiver Puig (PGA of Spain), runner-up in 2016, also returns, but with new partner, Englishman Liam Murray (PGA of Spain). The pairing of Javier and Manuel Ballesteros (PGA of Spain), son and nephew of the late, great Seve Ballesteros, are back to try and improve on their third place from last year.

Jürgen Maurer (PGA of Austria), half of the 2013 Fourball Championship winning team returns with new partner Robin Goger (PGA of Austria).

In-form man of the moment is Alex Wrigley (PGA of GB&I), who produced a dominant display to win the 2017 Mercedes-Benz International Pro-Am at Al Ain Equestrian, Shooting & Golf Club last week by four shots. He partners with fellow PGA of GB&I Professional Steven Fawcitt.

With continued, valuable support from the Costa Daurada, the Cambrils, La Pineda Platja, and Salou local tourism agencies, along with Golfbreaks.com, the Championship will no doubt be the biggest and best yet.
