This week European Tour Weekly travels to Turin for the 70° OPEN D’ITALIA LINDT.  The tournament has been part of the European Tour International Schedule since its inception in 1972. This year it will take place at the stunning Golf Club Torino and ETW will be on the range with all the latest thoughts from the players on the eve of the event.

Golf Club Torino is the home club of brothers Edoardo and Francesco Molinari, who between them have won five European Tour titles, won the World Cup in 2009 and appeared together in The 2010 Ryder Cup. ETW recently met up with the younger of the siblings, Francesco, to talk about the tournament and the venue that he knows so well.

Our review this week comes from Holland and the KLM Open and ETW will bring you the best of the action from Kennemer G&CC.

Whilst in Holland ETW caught up with Frenchman Christian Cévaër, who after 20 years of being a professional plans to retire at the end of the season following a catalogue of injury troubles. Cévaër is twice a winner on The European Tour, his last victory coming at the 2009 European Open.  

In a special feature, European Tour Weekly takes a look at the annual Qualifying School marathon, which got underway last week in Austria and Scotland. 170 golfers took part hoping to progress through to Second Stage, with the eventual prize being a coveted place on The European Tour for the 2014 season. 

Together with all of the latest news and statistics from the Tour, this completes another edition of European Tour Weekly.
