Adri Arnaus has moved up to 52nd in the world rankings after securing his first tournament victory on the DP World Tour, having won a dramatic Catalunya Championship.

After five previous runner-up finishes, the Spaniard delighted the home crowd after eventually seeing off South Africa’s Oliver Bekker on the sixth play-off hole to take the €322,000 winner’s cheque.

Arnaus admitted afterwards that he had set himself a target at the start of the season and the 27-year-old is edging close to a place in the top-50 in the world.

The man from Barcelona stated “That’s a target of mine (getting inside the top 50). This year we had a target set. I feel like I belong there, so looking forward to moving up.”

Betfred British Masters Betting Odds

Arnaus, who moves up to sixth in the DP World Tour rankings, now heads to the UK for the next event – the Betfred British Masters at The Belfry.

He is amongst the favourites to win this week’s tournament, with Arnaus 22/1 to claim back-to-back victories with Sam Horsfield and Robert McIntyre (both 20/1) the only players above him in the betting.

Two of the last four editions have been won by British players – Richard Bland (2021) and Eddie Pepperell (2018) – and Laurie Canter will feel he can add his name to the list of home winners.

The 32-year-old moved up nine places in the world rankings after his T3 finish at the Catalunya Championship and has four top-25 finishes to his name this season.

Canter is currently available at 28/1 to claim success at The Belfry, while host Danny Willett can also be backed at the same price.
