Two-time UniCredit PGA Professional Champion of Europe, Hugo Santos, is looking to make it a trio of wins at this week’s championship that returns to Pravets Golf and Spa Resort in Bulgaria for the third time.
The Portuguese Professional has represented his country on multiple occasions at international level, including numerous Confederation of Professional Golf tournament appearances. Santos has also represented Portugal at the 2011 Mission Hills World Cup in China alongside his brother, Ricardo.
“It is with great pleasure that I return to Pravets for another championship with my fellow European club professionals,”said Santos, whose domination of the championship started with a playoff victory against the PGA of Holland’s Ben Collier in 2011, followed up in 2012 with a 20-foot putt on the last hole for his second win.
“It’s a course that I love and a place where I feel welcome. This year I will again try to be more focused on my game rather than defending the title, so we’ll see whether I am there at the end of the tournament!”
Santos will join fellow countryman António Rosado in his pursuit of the championship that was revived in 2011 after a six-year hiatus from the Confederation of Professional Golf tournament schedule, as players from across the Confederation of Professional Golf member countries compete for the €10,000 winner’s cheque.
