“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.
