SPAIN’S Sergio Garcia will bid for a hat trick of back-to-back wins in Andalucia as the Masters lineup has been announced.

The 39-year-old world number 30 won the Andalucia Masters, held at Real Club Valderrama in 2011, 2017 and 2018.

Standing in his way of a consecutive triple, is his countryman Jon Rahm, the world number 11, who has six international titles to his name, including the Zurich Classic.

WINNER: Garcia will bid to win his fourth Andalucia Masters title, which would see him crowned champion for the last three years in a row

A big crop of British talent is also among the 144 golfers teeing off on Spain’s most famous course for the €3 million prize.

From England, come 2015 British Masters champion Matthew Fitzpatrick and 2018 Hong Kong Open-winner Aaron Rai, while Scotland sends Richie Ramsay, the first Brit to win the U.S. Amateur for almost a century.

Tickets are €18 for adults and €7 for young fans and can be bought from www.andaluciavalderramamasters.com.

There will be plenty of sun with highs in the late 20s currently forecast for the tournament from  June 27 to 30.
