Pedro Oriol

Pedro Oriol sealed his 2018 playing rights on the European Tour with a majestic fairway bunker shot that finished two feet from the 18th hole. The resulting birdie three in Oman elevated Pedro into 10th place in the Road to Oman Rankings and with it the opportunity to play a full season in the Race to Dubai. Earlier in the year, the charismatic Spaniard collected his first Challenge Tour title in the prestigious Rolex Trophy. Inspired by his idol and legend – Seve Ballesteros, Oriol wore a trademark Seve visor inspiring him to a final round 65 (-7) and a tie for top spot before claiming an impressive victory on the first play-off hole.

Born in Seville, Pedro first took up golf aged ten after being introduced to the game by his grandfather. Went to the University of Arizona (USA), but returned home to Madrid a year later to complete his degree in marketing and commercial management.  Has served his apprenticeship on the Challenge Tour and successfully made it through Q-School in 2014. One of the longest drivers on the European Tour, Pedro has worked hard to improve consistency and secured his first main tour victory last year at the Rolex Trophy before graduating to the European Tour in November. The Spaniard’s sporting heroes are Rafael Nadal and Fernando Alonso. In his spare time he enjoys hunting.  We have no doubt that Pedro has all the attributes to become one of the best players in the world.
