García and Cabrera Bello win in the virtual Valderrama



Spanish golfers Sergio García and Rafael Cabrera Bello have won the fourth round of the BMW Indoor Invitational a virtual circuit that organizes the European Tour, in the Valderrama golf course in Cádiz. 34 players participated and the leaders handed out a card of 71 strokes (-1).

Golf virtual, but very real. The technology of a golf simulator was used and each player participated from home. Sergio, who is in Austin (Texas) and has just been the father of his second son, Enzo, did not fail in one of his favorite fields. The Spanish has been four times champion in Sotogrande. The man from Castellón will donate the 10,000 dollars of the prize to the Spanish Red Cross. A few months ago, he also joined the project by Rafa Nadal and Pau Gasol #nuestramejorvictoria, contributing $ 200,000.

"The simulator is a fun and different experience. I cannot think of a better cause than the Red Cross to donate and try to help as many people as possible in difficult times" he assured RTVE.

For his part, Rafa Cabrera Bello spends confinement in Florida enjoying his little Alva and had a great time with a very busy round, where he got to sign four birdies and one eagle. "The simulator has achieved a very real field in the design of the fairways and the greens. It has been a lot of fun. We had a great time, Sergio and I together," he explained.

On June 11 the PGA Tour returns

The virtual tournament has served to warm up the engines before the next American PGA, which will return to the scene on the next 11 June at the Colonial in Fort Worth, Texas with the Charles Schwab Challenge tournament. It will be three months after The Players, suspended on the second day for the coronavirus.
