The inaugural Rocco Forte Open will be played over a composite course combining holes from both the East and West Coast in Vendura, Sicily. The 7,217 yards, par 71, has a linksy feel about it with the final six holes running adjacent to the coast.
Again there isn’t a great field but at least there are some good prices on offer and to me James Morrison looks a good pick. He had a couple of top six finishes on the Sunshine Tour, in South Africa, at the end of February and beginning of May. So far this season he has just one missed cut and five top fifteens. He has been working hard on his game and has improved statistically on GIR, putts per round and a few more. He has more than thirty rounds averaging less than 70, one of only five players on the Tour.
With his improvement and the linksy feel to the course I have faith that the Englishman can be there on Sunday.
1.50 ew James Morrison (Bet365 22-1)
