Introducing the prize for a hole-in-one on the 14th this week.
A hole-in-one brings delight for any golfer but sometimes they mean a little more than others…
There have been 75 editions of the Italian Open and this year they return to Olgiata Golf Club for the first time since 2002, where a young Ian Poulter was crowned champion.
There’s extra incentive for the field in Rome this week as a perfect shot on the 14th hole - namely the unbelievable prize on offer for the first player to make a hole-in-one during competition rounds at Olgiata.
The prize this week? A magnificent BMW M850i xDrive Convertible.
History has shown that ones on par threes measuring between 175 – 195 yards have been hard to find….
