Pablo Martin News


Pablo Martín-Benavides (born 20 April 1986) is a Spanish professional golfer.

Martín was born in Málaga, and attended Oklahoma State University in the United States. He was awarded the Haskins Award in 2006 and featured in the top ten of the World Amateur Golf Ranking. He won the 2005 Porter Cup.

In April 2007, Martín became the first amateur ever to win a European Tour event when he captured the Estoril Open de Portugal title. As an amateur, he had to forfeit the winner's prize money of €208,330, but the win still granted him exemption on the European Tour until the end of 2009. He turned professional in June 2007, and completed the season playing on both the European Tour and the PGA Tour, relying on sponsors' invitations for PGA Tour events.
