The European Tour returns to Europe this week for the Open de Andalucía Costa del Sol.  This will be the sixth staging of the event on Spain’s southern coast, and after a three-year hiatus, Aloha Golf club will play host. European Tour Weekly will be on the range getting the latest thoughts from the players on the eve of the tournament.

Last year Paul Lawrie won the event by one shot from Johan Edfors, his first victory on The European Tour for nearly nine years. ETW met up with Lawrie before the defence of his title this week to look back at his triumph twelve months ago.

Our review comes from Miami, and the WGC-Cadillac Championship and ETW will bring you the best of the action from the Doral Golf Resort & Spa.

Whilst in Miami ETW met up with Spain’s Rafael Cabrera-Bello who was playing in his first WGC Cadillac Championship thanks to his win at the Qatar Masters last month. It was Cabrera-Bello’s second title on The European Tour after his maiden victory at the Austrian Golf Open in 2009.

European Tour Weekly also took a trip to the Countyline Raceway near the Doral Resort & Spa where several Tour professionals from both The European Tour and US Tour were putting various cars through their paces for charity.

Together with all of the latest news and statistics from the Tour, this completes another edition of European Tour Weekly.
