Rafael Cabrera-Bello

Began playing at six years old in the garden in his backyard, and next to a golf course in the Canary Islands. Cabrera-Bello won the Spanish National Championship every year - from the Under-7 to Under-18 levels - after taking the game up at age 6. He studied business, economics and business law at the University of Las Palmas, but has yet to complete his degree because his studies were interrupted by his rise through the professional golf ranks. His younger sister, Emma, plays on the Ladies European Tour. Rafael owns a house in Bali, where he enjoys water sports.
Started playing on the European Challenge Tour in 2006. In 13 starts, had a win, a 3rd place, and four top-10s. Finished 13th in the Order of Merit that got him on the European Tour. He struggled in 2007, making only 16 cuts in 35 starts, finished 134th in the Order of Merit and lost his European Tour card. It was back on the Challenge Tour for 2008, where he posted a win, a 2nd and a 3rd. Finished 14th in the Order of Merit, which got him back on the European Tour.
Ear
ned his first win at the 2009 Austrian Golf Open. He finished 39th in the Race to Dubai.
Cabrera-Bello landed the biggest victory of his career at the 2012 Omega Dubai Desert Classic. He was helped considerably by a superb 63 in the first round, and ultimately held off Lee Westwood and Rory McIlroy, among others, to win with an 18-under-par total. The victory was the highlight of a consistent season in which he missed only one cut in 27 events.
2013 Notes: Played in 29 events on the European Tour, finished in the money 22 times, and had three top-10s. Best finish was T-5th at the Irish Open. He won euro$767,904 and was 41st in the Race to Dubai.

Finished 42nd in the Race to Dubai standings.
2015 Notes: After a slow start, didn't post his first top-25 result until he finished T-4th at the Irish Open. Followed that with a T-13th at the Nordea Masters, 2nd at the Lyoness Open, T-11th at the BMW International and 5th at the Alstom Open de France, which was his ticket to the British Open, where he finished T-40th.
