It’s not just another week for Sergio. With the Nedbank Golf Challenge, penultimate tournament of the European Tour season and played on the Gary Player Country Club in Sun City, Sergio kicks off his 500th tournament of his career counting for the official golf world ranking. 

History began at the Turespaña Masters played at El Saler in the year 1996. Since then, Sergio has won more than 30 tournaments, another 29 second places and more than 180 top 10 finishes. The victories have been achieved in fourteen different countries: United States (10), Spain (7), Ireland, Germany, France, Korea, Switzerland, China, Malaysia, Thailand, Qatar, Vietnam, Dubai (UAE) and Singapore. In fact, more than thirty percent of the tournaments Sergio finished in the top ten, an impressive number. His goal in South Africa will be to add another victory to his record!
