The 2023 DS Automobiles Italian Open is the next stop on the DP World Tour following the Korea Championship. Rome’s Marco Simone Golf Club will also host this year’s Ryder Cup in September. For the third time overall, the Italian Open is being contested at Marco Simone Golf and Country Club.

The main course is an 18-hole, par-72 course surrounded by gorgeous natural scenery, particularly the gently rolling Italian countryside. The match, which will take place in its original slot on the calendar, will launch the European Tour’s continental run. And for players hoping to make a mark before the Ryder Cup, this is a huge opportunity!

The reigning champion, Robert MacIntyre will headline the event. Last year, he faced off against Matt Fitzpatrick after an outstanding 10 birdie final round of 64, and triumphed. And given that he’s been on a hot streak lately, finishing in the top 10 in each of his previous three tournaments, he will certainly be looking to defend his title this week.

Players like Jorge Campillo of Spain, Yannik Paul of Germany, and Victor Perez of France, who are well set on the European Ryder Cup Points List, are also on the field. They will certainly be prepared to give it their all in an effort to maintain their chances of achieving automatic qualification in the International event in September.
