  • Rafa Cabrera-Bello - tees off on the 1st hole during the final round of the Omega Dubai Desert Classic


Landed the biggest victory of his career at the 2012 Omega Dubai Desert Classic, where he held off Lee Westwood and Rory McIlroy, among others, to win with an 18 under par total, helped considerably by a superb 63 in the first round. Won his only other European Tour title at the 2009 Austrian Golf Open thanks to a stunning final round 60. Claimed the Spanish National Championship every year from Under-seven to Under-18 level after taking the game up at the age of six. Studied business, economics and business law at university, but still has to complete his degree after his studies were interrupted by his rise through the professional golfing ranks as he finished 14th on the 2006 Challenge Tour Rankings following victory at the MAN NÖ Open in Austria. Narrowly missed out on retaining his European Tour playing privileges in 2007, but secured an immediate return to the elite level in 2008. Grew up next to a golf course in the Canary Islands, and his sister Emma competes on the Ladies European Tour. Owns a house in Bali, where he loves to spend time surfing.
