Sam Torrance to make Benahavis Senior Masters return

Sam-TorranceFormer Ryder Cup Captain Sam Torrance has added his name to what is becoming the strongest field in the history of the Benahavis Senior Masters by confirming his attendance at La Quinta Golf and Country Club from June 1-3.

Torrance joins a host of fellow former Ryder Cup players including Gordon Brand Jnr, Antonio Garrido, Manuel Piñero and Mark James, along with reigning John Jacobs Trophy Champion Peter Fowler, the 2010 winner Boonchu Ruangkit, and defending champion Carl Mason as they attempt to collect the lion’s share of the increased prize fund of €200,000.

The Benahavis Senior Masters has moved to a new date on the Senior Tour schedule this year, from Mid-October to early June, and the move has proven popular with the players as many of the Senior Tour stars attempt to steal a march in the Order of Merit at the early stages of the season.

“I am thoroughly looking forward to returning to the Benahavis Senior Masters,” said Torrance, a three-time Senior Tour Order of Merit winner. “I’m really keen to get off to a good start this season and hopefully I can put myself in contention at La Quinta.
“It’s certainly a perfect time of the year to be playing in Benahavis and hopefully the crowds will be out in force to give the tournament a really exciting atmosphere befitting of this wonderful venue.”

It will be no easy task for Torrance though, with 27 from the top 30 players expected to play at La Quinta, a premium parkland course nestled in the hills overlooking Marbella and the Mediterranean Sea.

Entry for the Benahavis Senior Masters is free and makes an ideal opportunity to see some legends of the game up close and personal. For more information about the Benahavis Senior Masters please visit
