Encyclopedia > Madrid Open

The Madrid Open is an annual men's golf tournament which has been held in and around the Spanish capital Madrid since 1968, apart from a seven year gap from 1994 to 2000. It has been an official money event on the European Tour since the tour's first official season in 1972 until 2005. Spain was the only country other than the UK which hosted more than one event in 1972, the other tournament in the country being the Spanish Open. The tournament has had several sponsored names over the years. In 2006 the tournament moved to a new slot and was played the same September week as the 16-man HSBC World Match Play Championship. The 2006 prize fund was €1 million, which is one of the smaller purses on the European Tour. In 2007 the event will move to October, but it will once again be an alternate event to the HSBC World Match Play Championship, which has also been rescheduled.
