Justin Rose has confirmed that he will tee off at the Italian Open in October as he chases down a Race to Dubai title.
The Italian Open at Olgiata Golf Club is the fifth Rolex Series event on the European Tour calendar. Rose is hunting down what would be a third successive Race to Dubai crown in 2019.

“I’m excited to come back to Italy, and to Rome in particular, which is such a stunning city and a highlight for us players,” Rose told europeantour.com.
“The history and tradition behind the Italian Open makes this tournament very special and with The 2022 Ryder Cup coming to Rome, it is going to be an amazing week in one of the world’s most iconic cities.
“It’s always great to come back to Europe and I’m excited to play Olgiata again almost 17 years on at such a different point in my career. I know the Italian fans are great, they are sports mad in their country, and following Francesco’s Major success and The 2022 Ryder Cup on the horizon, it’s going to be an awesome experience in Rome.”
Rose’s fellow Ryder Cup teammates Molinari and Thorbjorn Olesen – the defending champion – will join him at the Italian Open from October 10-13.
Tiger Woods was very honest about the state of his game after his missed cut at The Open, but made it clear he’s not done winning either.
He so very nearly pulled off a remarkable escape act, but in the end Rory McIlroy left himself too much to do to make The Open cut.
After four straight missed cuts in the Open, Shane Lowry has well and truly turned things at Royal Portrush this week.
British hopes will be resting on Tommy Fleetwood, Lee Westwood and Justin Rose at The Open this weekend.
Despite a much better showing at The Open on Friday, an exhausted Tiger Woods admitted he couldn’t wait to get home after missing the cut.
Brooks Koepka isn’t sure why he’s not making any putts so far this week, but admitted he was “frustrated” and “disappointed” by it.
Golf analyst Brandel Chamblee didn’t hold back when describing Rory McIlroy’s first-round performance at the Open Championship on Thursday.
A closing birdie handed JB Holmes a one-shot lead over Shane Lowry at the Open on Thursday, but Brooks Koepka is right behind them.
Tiger Woods more than likely won’t be a factor at Portrush this week, after an opening 78 left him right near the bottom of the leaderboard.
