| ||It`s a short turnaround for the European Tour players after the Monday finish
at the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship. All of the Spanish stars are in the
field, including Sergio Garcia, two-time Masters champion Jose Maria
Olazabal, Miguel Angel Jimenez, Gonzalo Fernandez- Castano and Alvaro Quiros.
Last year, it was a South African who prevailed in the inaugural Madrid
Masters. Charl Schwartzel fired a five-under 66 to come from behind and
defeat Ricardo Gonzalez by three strokes for his third European Tour win. The
2008 championship was contested at Club de Campo Villa de Madrid. Golf
Channel has all four rounds and next week is the Portugal Masters, where
Quiros will try to successfully defend his title.
