January 31: Spain's Sergio Garcia will make his long-awaited return to the Omega European Masters which will be played at the majestic Crans-sur-Sierre Golf Club, Switzerland from July 23-26 .
The Spaniard  last played in the Omega European Masters in 2006 where he finished tied fourth after winning the title in 2005.
Garcia's last victory on the European Tour came at the  2014 Commercial Bank Qatar Masters. The world number six finished joint runner up behind Rory McIlroy at last year’s Open Championship.
Having started his professional career in 1999, Garcia has remained in the top ten on the Official World Golf Ranking for more than 250 weeks.
The Omega European Masters is the only joint-sanctioned event to be held on European soil for the Asian Tour since 2009.
The 2014 edition saw history being made for the Asian Tour when David Lipsky of the United States became the first player from the Tour to win the Omega European Masters after defeating England’s Graeme Storm at the first play-off hole.
Ends.
