The former number-one ranked men’s amateur in Europe, Eduard Rousaud Sabate, has turned professional.
The Spanish player, who was also ranked second highest in the men’s World Amateur Golf Ranking, has enjoyed an impressive amateur career which saw him compete in a number of EGA Championships and International Matches.
After representing Spain at the European Young Masters in 2015 and 2016, Rousaud earned himself a spot in the Spanish Boys’ Team in 2017. He would help the team to silver medals that year, narrowly missing out on gold to Denmark in the final.
His performances gained him selection for the 2017 Continent of Europe Jacques Léglise Trophy team, where he would contribute 2.5 points from three matches.

In 2018, Rousaud represented Spain a second time at the European Boys’ Team Championship and went undefeated in the match play stages to go one better than 2017 and lead the team to victory.
The same year, Rousaud also represented the Continent of Europe a second time in the Jacques Léglise Trophy, represented Europe in the Junior Ryder Cup, won the Copa Nacional Puerta de Hierro, and finished with the lowest individual total at the European Men’s Club Trophy, helping his team, Real Club de Golf El Prat, to the bronze medal.
