Italian Open

Recommended Posts

The Italian Open is one of the more established events having started life in 1925 and joining the European Tour right at the start in 1972. For 2019 we switch back to Olgiata GC which hasn’t hosted the Italian Open since Ian Poulter won the 2002 edition. Olgiata GC is every inch the stereotypical Italian parkland layout. Since Ian Poulter won here in 2002, the course has seen an extensive renovation which has added over 400 yards to the scorecard, now measuring 7,523 yards for its par of 71 from its tips. Although tree-lined pretty much throughout the course, we’re not talking Wentworth in terms of a claustrophobic layout and there’s generally a fair amount of rough to miss before players run the risk of being hampered by trees.

Italian Opens often play out quite similar though regardless of the track used and I’ll err on the side of accuracy over power, despite the course having been extended since it was last seen on the European Tour.

Molinari 16/1, Luiten 50/1, Chesters 150/1, Zanotti 150/1.
