Record Field of 115 Pairs set for Fourball Championship

A record 230 PGA professionals will descend on Lumine Golf Club at Mediterranea Beach & Golf Community in the Costa Daurada region of Spain this week for the 2016 edition of the PGAs of Europe’s Fourball Championship.

From the 10-12 February PGA professional pairs from across the association’s member countries will compete across 54 holes of golf for a record prize fund of €53,500 in the popular fourball format that has grown to be a hugely competitive championship.

2015 champions Matthew Cort and Craig Shave (PGA of Great Britain & Ireland) will return to try to defend their title but will be joined by some of the best PGA professionals in the world.

The son and nephew of Spanish golfing legend Seve Ballesteros, Javier and Manuel Ballesteros, join together as part of a strong representation by the home PGA with over 70 professionals in the field.

2005 Johnnie Walker Championship at Gleneagles winner, Emanuele Canonica, and fellow PGA of Italy and European Tour member, Lorenzo Gagli, join the field, as well as 2013 Fourball Championship winners from the PGA of Austria, Jürgen Maurer and Uli Weinhandl.
