With the Speedy Services Welsh Senior Open now only a week away, it's worth remembering that that isn't the only top class golf tournament taking place in Southern Wales this summer.

In August, The Celtic Manor Resort at Newport will once again play host to the ISPS Handa Wales Open. The tournament, which has switched to a new late summer date this year, will be the first to count towards qualification to the European Ryder Cup team 2014.

The ISPS Handa Wales Open has grown into one of the premier events on The European Tour since its inception in 2000. With Ryder Cup stars Graeme McDowell, Robert Karlsson, Miguel Angel Jiménez, Ian Poulter, Paul Lawrie and Paul McGinley among the past champions and of course Thailand's Thongchai Jaidee who claimed the first prize in 2012.
