Biography

One of the great sporting stories of 2008, a year which culminated in his being named the Sir Henry Cotton Rookie of the Year. Won the €4million Open de France ALSTOM after coming through the 36-hole pre-qualifying event at Chantilly the week before many of The European Tour’s biggest stars arrived at Le Golf National in Versailles. The son of a fish farmer from Santander, he overwhelmed a field which included Angel Cabrera, Colin Montgomerie – who finished in second place, four strokes behind Larrazábal – and Lee Westwood to record an unforgettable maiden Tour win. Added a second win in 2011 at the BMW International Open, where he edged out compatriot Sergio Garcia in a play-off, while six top ten finishes in 2012 helped him to 37th place in The Race to Dubai. Continued to show his pedigree with victory at the 2014 Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship, where he birdied the final hole to finish one stroke ahead of major winners Rory McIlroy and Phil Mickelson. Brother of 2002 Amateur Champion Alejandro, for whom Pablo caddied at the Masters Tournament the following year. Finished his final year of high school in 2002 in the United States. Returned to Spain and wanted to turn professional straight away but his father, Gustavo, who played for Venezuela in the World Cup, had other ideas, making his son go to work on the family fish farm to learn and understand the value of money and a day’s hard labour.
