Encyclopedia > Open de Espana

The Open de España (formerly the Spanish Open) is the national open golf championship of Spain. It was founded in 1912 and has been part of the PGA European Tour's schedule since the inception of the Tour in 1970. It has had several sponsored names and is currently called the Jazztel Open de España en Andalucía. It is played in April and in 2005 it is one of five European Tour events in Spain. The 2005 prize fund was 1,652,475, which means it is not one of the more lucrative European Tour events and it has been superseded as the leading tournament in Spain by the finale to the European Tour season the Volvo Masters. Distinguished former champions include Arnold Palmer, Seve Ballesteros, Bernhard Langer, and Nick Faldo.
