Sensational Spaniards Seal Fourball Win2 min read


Posted on: 6th Mar 2020

PGA of Spain Professionals, David Salgado & Pedro Oriol, have been crowned the 2020 Costa Daurada CPG Fourball Championship winners at Lumine Mediterránea Beach & Golf Community in Costa Daurada, Spain, after a sensational week of low scoring.

“I think the summary of the week is that we had a lot of fun and that is maybe the reason why we won,” said Oriol. “In my case for example, I think that when you play as a pair it’s great – we are friends and we practice together every day…so it was a great week.

“We were aiming to reach -30 as we thought that could be the number – but we had the same strategy as every day – try to birdie every hole. Fourball is fun and you can play wild and risky and that’s pretty much what we did.”

This strategy enabled them to card one of the lowest rounds ever recorded in the Championship in Round 01 with a -13 58, followed up by an eight-under 64 in Round 02.

This four-shot advantage was the platform for them to make a final surge with a -10 that took their Championship total to an incredible -31 (183) and their winners’ share of the €46,500 total prize fund.

Second place fell to PGA of Belgium Professionals, Christopher Mivis & Nicolas Vanhootegem – a final round 61 (-10), the joint low round of the day, advanced them five places up the leaderboard to take second by one shot on -25 (189).

Three pairs of PGA Professionals finished in tied-third position on -24 (190) – Emilio Cuartero & Ivan Cantero (PGA of Spain), Jordi Panes & Ruben Gonzalez (PGA of Spain) and Alessandro Grammatica & Federico Maccario (PGA of Italy).
