The Andalucia Costa Del Sol Open De Espana takes place at Alferini Golf in Malaga. The tournament is the 33rd and final of the Ladies European Tour season and concludes the Race to Costa del Sol title.

A 75-player field will tee it up in the tournament, comprising the top 64 players in the Race to Costa del Sol standings and 11 invitees. Much of the focus will be on Linn Grant and Maja Stark, each of whom has the chance to win the prestigious season-long race. Swede Grant begins the tournament in first place in the standings with her compatriot just 69.77 points behind her in second.

Ahead of the tournament, LET Rookie of the Year Grant said: “I feel like we’ve had a battle on and off throughout the year and it would be sad to have it be over already. I’m glad it made it to the final event, and we’ll give it a good go this week. I feel like it was supposed to be this way, it feels good."

Meanwhile, Stark explained that there is plenty she can take into the next season to come back even stronger, regardless of her performance this week. She said: “I am going to miss this season when I go home next week, and I realise it’s one-and-a-half months until the next tournament. I’m so tired, but I have learnt a lot this season and have a lot of things that I want to do differently.”

To win the Race to Costa Del Sol title, Grant only needs to finish ahead of Stark or tie with her, whereas Stark has to beat her opponent to have any chance of claiming the title. For whoever does claim the title between the pair, it will mark the culmination of a remarkable season considering each player only turned professional in August 2021.

Elsewhere in the field, Carlota Ciganda, who won the tournament last year, will be confident of repeating the feat on home soil. Meanwhile, 2020 Race to Costa del Sol champion Emily Kristine Pedersen also plays as does Ireland’s Leona Maguire. Another Spaniard, Azahara Munoz, who won the tournament 2016 and 2017, also appears.

Players are competing for a purse of €650,000. The winner will claim €97,500. Below is a full breakdown of the prize-money and field for the 2022 Andalucia Costa Del Sol Open De Espana.
