The European Tour heads to Rome, Italy and the Olgiata Golf Club which was designed by Ken Cotton and Frank Pennink which opened for play in 1962 with another nine holes being added later, making the club a 27-hole complex.

Olgiata Golf Club is around 12-miles from the centre of Rome with the Olgiata area having a very rich history that dates back over 3000 years with the lands becoming battlefields for the great families of Anguillara, Orsini, and the Chigi, fighting not only each other but several popes. Moving forward a few thousand years the lands would become a stud farm, producing world class thoroughbreds like Nearco in the 1930s and Ribot in the 1950s, there is also a horse racing track to the south of this amazing golf and residential complex.

In 2010 Jim Fazio was commissioned to undertake an extensive renovation programme which see fifteen holes being redesigned taking the course forward with Championship golf very much at the forefront of the clubs thinking.

The Championship tees take the course to over 7,600 yards with the subtle undulating fairways meander through mature umbrella pines and the fast greens with their array of complexes putting your skills with the flat stick to the test. All 27 holes at Olgiata are set in parkland with the two 9-hole loops of the West course fanning out from the clubhouse in opposite directions.

My tips to Win:

It’s not really rocket science making Francesco Molinari 16/1 – with BetFred – my favourite especially as the Italian has won the event twice with five other Top 10 finishes including last years runner-up spot. Francesco has teed it up twice this year in Europe and has finished inside the Top 15 both times and I expect him to be challenging in front of his home fans this week.

One of the reasons I am tipping Matthew Fitzpatrick 25/1 – with SportingBet – this week is because he is one of the few players that have played over this track before, when he made the Top 10 on the Challenge Tour back in 2014 after the changes where made to the course. Matthew has had three runner-up finishes so far on this year’s European Tour wraparound season and after winning an event every year since 2015 he will be keen to keep that going and win one of the remaining tournaments.

I did say when I first tipped Erik Van Rooyen 33/1 – with SportingBet – earlier this year that he would not only win at some point this year but that I could see him winning multiple times. After winning the Scandinavian Invitation a few weeks ago he will be looking to taste victory again this week. Erik took a week off after the Dunhill Links which was the first time he had finished outside the Top 20 in seven starts and I expect him to be back in the thick of it here come Sunday.

Each-way tips

I am going to stick with Andrea Pavan 33/1 – with SportingBet – this week. Andrea started well in Spain last week opening up with a 66, but he could never really recover from his second round 76, but he still managed a Top 15 spot. Andrea, like Fitzpatrick has had a competitive Top 10 finish here on the Challenge Tour and he will be desperate to lift his national championship trophy.

Justin Harding 80/1 – with SpreadEx – followed up his win at the Qatar Master with a runner-up finish at the Kenya Open, but has not really challenged since then and seemed to lose his way mid-season. Three good rounds in the 60s with a third round 64 at the Spanish Open at the weekend see him finish inside the Top 10 and I think that confidence boost will see him challenging again this week.

Outside tip:

Another player that lost his way after a good start to the season is Jason Scrivener 125/1 – with BetFred – who had four Top 7 finishes from his first five starts on the wraparound season, but some good golf at the Dunhill Links and last week’s Spanish Open where he fired all four rounds in the 60s should see him teeing it up here in buoyant mood.

Longer odds:

Try Ashley Chesters 175/1 – with SkyBet

As always good luck
