The ISPS Handa Championship in Spain is a new event for the DP World Tour having only been added to the schedule because of ongoing travel restrictions affecting the intended tournament areas of Japan and China.

It kickstarts a two-week stretch in Spain before heading to the Belfry for the British Masters, where Richard Bland claimed his maiden DP World Tour title last year. 

Whilst it is new to the circuit, the course will be familiar to many. The ISPS Handa Championship will be contested on the Lakes Course at Infinitum Resort in Tarragon, home to the final stage of Qualifying School in recent years. The Lakes Course is one of two Greg Norman designed courses at the resort and regarded as the most difficult test. As the name would suggest, water is its most prominent protection.

The field is headlined by World No.78 Bernd Wiesberger who will be looking to recapture the form that earned him a place on Padraig Harrington's Ryder Cup team in 2021. 

Spanish native, Alejandro Canizares, is in the field and boasts impressive course form having won the Qualifying Series on the Lakes Course in 2018 and finished third again in 2019. 

Danish twins, Nicolai and Rasmus Hojgaard are also in the field and looking to take opportunity of the available points to catapult their charge up the Official World Golf Ranking. Nicolai has missed seven of eight cuts in 2022 but offset that with victory at Ras al Khaimah Championship in February.

Rasmus has been a little more consistent this year but remains without a win. His best finish came at the Corales Punta Cana Championship where he finished sixth; three shots behind eventual winner, Chad Ramey

Whilst the field is without any of the top-50 in the Official World Golf Ranking, it promises to provide drama and excitement down the stretch with two par-5's in the closing three holes.
