Everyone at Mapei UK would like to congratulate Adrian Otaegui on not only finishing tied third at the recent Ras Al Khaimah Championship, but also breaking the course record at the Al Hamra Golf Club on the way.
On the second day of the competition, Adrian made nine birdies without a single dropped shot, to set the new course record and catapult himself into contention with his round. David Law had broken the course record earlier that day with an 8 under, Adrian went one shot better with a bogey free, 9 under, with 9 birdies.
He finished tied 3rd with a total of -17 (71, 63, 70, 67), and he moved up to 29th on the DP World Tour Ranking.
Enjoyed a breakthrough maiden European Tour victory at the 2017 Saltire Energy Paul Lawrie Match Play, before securing his second European Tour title when he triumphed at the inaugural Belgian Knockout at Rinkven International Golf Club in May 2018. The Spaniard defeated Benjamin Hebert by two shots in the final of the innovative tournament.
Stormed to victory at the 2020 Scottish Championship with a final round nine under par 63, winning his third European Tour title by four strokes.
Mentored by Europe’s 2012 Ryder Cup captain José María Olazábal, having played most of his junior golf at his local golf club in the seaside resort of Fuenterrabia, where Olazábal was born and raised. Then made the short move over the border to Biarritz, but still stays in regular contact with his idol and mentor.
Played a mixture of Challenge Tour and European Tour events during his first few years as a professional before finishing 69th in the 2016 Race to Dubai after jointly winning the Q-School to regain his playing privileges in 2015.
Won 11 titles in a glittering amateur career, including the 2010 British Boys Amateur Championship at Kilmarnock (Barassie) Golf Club in Scotland, emulating the achievement of Olazábal, whose name was etched onto the same trophy in 1983.
