Biography

Became the third youngest player in the history of Qualifying School to claim his European Tour card in the winter of 2014 when, aged just 17 years and 341 days, he finished third in the annual marathon at PGA Catalunya Resort in his first event as a professional. Not content with that significant career step, just days later he rubber-stamped his ascent into the paid ranks by winning the Italian PGA Championship, shooting 62 in the final round at San Domenico Golf before beating former Challenge Tour Number One Andrea Pavan in a play-off. Enjoyed a brilliant amateur career in which he won the Men’s Individual Strokeplay Gold at the 2014 Youth Olympics in China, made two Junior Ryder Cup appearances for Europe and triumphed at the 2014 Portuguese Amateur Championship. Will be looking to follow in the footsteps of his close friend, mentor and compatriot Matteo Manassero, having met the future four-time European Tour winner as a 13 year old at a training camp for the Italian National squad. Took up golf, alongside his mother, at the age of eight after being inspired by a family friend and quickly discovered he had a natural talent, deciding to work towards a life in the game when he first shot under par aged just 13. Outside golf, he enjoys all sports, music and the cinema.
