Andalucia Masters to tee off in Spain on Thursday

In 2018, Andalucia Masters was added to the Open Qualifying Series in place of the Open de France, giving up to three non—exempt players entry into the Open Championship.

The Estrella Damm N.A. Andalucia Masters is all set to tee off on Thursday at the Real Club Valderrama in Spain where ace Indian golfers Shubhankar Sharma, S.S.P. Chawrasia, Shiv Kapur and Gaganjeet Bhullar will be seen in action.

In 2018, Andalucia Masters was added to the Open Qualifying Series in place of the Open de France, giving up to three non—exempt players entry into the Open Championship.

The 3,000,000 euro prize purse event is part of the European Tour and has increased its prize money by 1,000,000 euro over the last year.

Bhullar, who looked impressive in the first two rounds at the BMW International Open, will look to make the most of this opportunity. Shubhankar on the other hand will have a chance to again earn a direct entry to the Open Championship, something he did in 2018 by winning the Joburg Open.

The field is filled with quality players, none more illustrious than 15—time European Tour winner and defending champion Sergio Garcia.

A host of other golf stars, including five—time European Tour winner Matthew Fitzpatrick who lost the BMW International Open by a single stroke, will be keen to win this tournament.

The event will be broadcast live on DSPORT from June 27—30 from 3:30 p.m. onwards.
