Garrick Higgo is ready for his first Major.
Garrick Higgo, statements
“The main difference is that this is my first week playing in front of fans. The European Tour bubble hasn’t allowed us to play in front of more than a handful of fans since I joined the European Tour so I’m looking forward to the atmosphere out there with 10,000+ fans onsite per day!. Its amazing!. It’s in great condition and 10 holes run alongside the Atlantic which makes for great views. The course is tough but the weather forecast looks pretty settled with a bit of wind so it will be a strong test. I’m just focused on working on a strategy that suits my style of play and then playing my own game. I think I can do that well and if I do, I can contend”.
Italian golf starts from Piemonte, land of Francesco and Edoardo Molinari. The restart is called Ladies Italian Open, a race on the European women’s circuit that returns to our home grass after seven years of absence. It is played from 28 to 30 May in Margara, in the Fubine Monferrato area (Alessandria). “I am happy because with this Open Italy of golf is there and puts women at the center”: the words of Virginia Elena Carta, officially a professional for only 24 hours but with an amateur life to make you shiver.
“I couldn’t wait to play the Ladies Italian Open – said the 25-year-old Virginia in Turin – because it is a great opportunity. I had been waiting for it for seven years, I played the last Open in our house (in Perugia he won the amateur award, ed) but it was another thing. Now everything changes ”. She is pure wisdom from one of our many compatriots expected in Margara. Lucrezia Colombotto Rosso, Giulia Molinaro (the two Italians leaving for Tokyo 2020), Roberta Liti, Alessia Nobilio and Carolina Melgrati also began an ideal countdown for the Italian Open with her. From the clip shown during the presentation, you can perceive the desire to play in Italy after so much wandering.
