Matteo Manassero and Andrea Pavan, winners of the last two Challenge Tour tournaments, respectively the Copenhagen Challenge and the D+D Real Czech Challenge, will be among the favorites in Spain in the Andalucía Challenge de Cádiz.

Seven other Italians competed: Aron Zemmer, Francesco Laporta, Lorenzo Gagli, Filippo Celli, Federico Maccario, Filippo Bergamaschi and Gregorio De Leo.

Challenge Tour, schedule

In the Challenge Tour tournament, which will take place from 8 to 11 June on the Iberostar Real Golf Novo Sancti Petri course, near Cadiz in Andalusia, among the opponents of the two blues there will be a particularly motivated one, the South African Casey Jarvis, who was defeated by both in the closing stages of the two events.

With him are his compatriots Dylan Monstert, JJ Senekal and Jaco Prinsloo, who also aim to enter the top 20 of the Road To Mallorca at the end of the year (order of merit), who will get on the DP World Tour in 2024. Other possible protagonists are the Swede Jesper Svensson, the Germans Maximilian Rottluff and Velten Meyer, the Portuguese Ricardo Gouveia, the Spaniard Emilio Cuartero Blanco and the Frenchman Pierre Pineau.

The Dutch Kiet Van der Weele is eagerly awaited, who looks further afield after winning three of the first six races on the Alps Tour. The Belgian Kristof Ulenaers, winner in 2021 (in 2022 the the race was not held), and not even the Iberian Pep Angles, the other past winner to score in the first edition (2020), is having a good time.

Among the participants his compatriot Gonzalo Fernandez Castaño, now 42 and in the descending phase of his career after a good period on the DP World Tour in which he signed eight successes including two in the Italian Open.

The jackpot is 250,000 euros with the first coin of 40,000 euros. Born in Negrar di Valpolicella, in the province of Verona, on 19 April 1993, Matteo Manassero began playing golf at the age of 3 and a half [2] at the Villafranca Golf Club.

In 1998 he moved to the Gardagolf Country Club of Soiano del Lago (BS) coached by Franco Maestroni; one of the first to notice him and talk about him is the television journalist Germano Mosconi, who became known in the Internet world in the 2000s for his off-air broadcasts while hosting the information programs of the local Telenuovo broadcaster. He currently trains and lives at the Monticello Golf Club (near Como) and is followed by Alberto Binaghi.
