Report: Andalucia Masters to be canceled; Spanish golf in trouble

Yet another Spain-based European Tour event is reportedly on the verge of being canceled.

The Andalucia Masters, the last European-based event on the schedule this season, will be removed from the docket, according to Golf by Tour Miss.

The tournament would be the fourth in Spain to be lost this season, joining tournaments in Madrid, Castellon and Majorca.

Further, it is unclear if Miguel Angel Jimenez will continue to personally back the Andalucia Open. The Volvo World Match Play Championship is leaving the country.

That would leave Spain with just on European Tour event in 2013 - the Spanish Open - two years after boasting seven.
