Jon Rahm and nine others, exemption in 2023

3 Min Read

This Sunday the Portugal Masters ended in Vilamoura, the penultimate tournament of the 2022 European Tour (DP World Tour) but the last of the regular season as the South African Nedbank Golf Challenge (November 10-13) only has access to the top 60 and the Dubai World Cup ( 17-20 November) the top 50.

Jon Rahm, results

Thus, in the Algarve the 117 cards that remain for 2023 and the players who must return to the School to win the rights to play the circuit next year have been determined. Therefore, a total of ten Spanish golfers have retained their exemption for 2023 (the position in the Race may vary logically depending on the results in South Africa and Dubai), that is: Adrián Otaegui (11th at the moment in the Race with 22 tournaments played ); Jon Rahm (12th and 9); Pablo Larraábal (18th and 19th); Adri Arnaus (27th and 21st); Rafa Cabrera (37th and 18th); Jorge Campillo (45th and 28); Santiago Tarrío (88th and 30); Ángel Hidalgo (91st and 21st); Nacho Elvira (104th and 29th) and Sebas Gª Rodríguez (117th and 28th).

The latter was narrowly saved, after missing the cut in Vilamoura and retaining his place among the top 117. The Cantabrian Alfred García Heredia (119th) has remained almost at the limit while illustrious figures from the circuit and with victories in Europe such as Alejandro Cañizares, Álvaro Quirós and Gonzalo Fernández Castaño will have to play the six rounds of the School.

As will also pass through the Pep Angles School, Borja Virto and Carlos Pigem. The name of Sergio García does not appear, who dropped out of the European Tour after lining up in the Arab Super League and is awaiting the final decision of the Tour about his future, especially in the face of the Ryder Cup.

It should be noted that Otaegui, winning the Estrella Damm Andalucía Masters in Valderrama, achieved the 200th victory of Spanish professional golf since the European Tour was officially established as such in 1972.
