Adrián Otaegui Jaúregui (born 21 November 1992) is a Spanish Basque professional golfer from San Sebastián who currently plays on the European Tour. He has won twice on the European Tour.

Amateur career[edit]

Otaegui had a successful amateur career which included winning the 2010 Boys Amateur Championship at Kilmarnock (Barassie) Golf Club where he beat Max Rottluff 4 & 3 in the final.

Professional career[edit]

Otaegui turned professional in July 2011. From 2011 to 2013 he played on the Challenge Tour. He had three runner-up finishes in 2013, at the Le Vaudreuil Golf Challenge, the Rolex Trophy and the Kazakhstan Open, finishing 7th in the money list to earn his place on the European Tour for 2014. After a poor 2014, Otaegui regained his place on the European tour by finishing tied for 5th in the 2014 Q School. He lost his card again in 2015 but was joint winner of the 2015 Q School to regain his place for 2016. He had more success in 2016, being runner-up in the Lyoness Open, a stroke behind Wu Ashun, and tied for third place in the Made in Denmark tournament.

After a poor start to 2017 Otaegui finished tied for 7th in the Open de France after being tied for the lead after 36 holes.[1] Later in 2017 he tied for 5th in the Porsche European Open and then had his first professional win in the Paul Lawrie Matchplay. In the final against Marcel Siem, he was three down after 9 holes but then won six of the next eight holes to win 2&1.

Otaegui was runner-up in the 2018 Volvo China Open, a stroke behind Alexander Björk and entered the world top-100 for the first time. In his next start he won the Belgian Knockout, beating Benjamin Hébert by 2 shots in the final.
