Fantasy Golf Picks: Italian Open
There’s no PGA Tour this week, with the FedEx Cup taking a break before the finale at East Lake next Thursday.
That means that the Italian Open from Golf Club Milano takes centre stage.

There are great prizes from Puma Cobra Golf to be won each and every week. This week’s prize is a Cobra F6 stand/cart bag and the prize for the month is a golf travel bag and duffle bag, perfect for a golf break.
Fantasy Golf picks for this week:
GB: Danny Willett – The Masters champ hasn’t won since Augusta but threw in a final round 64 at Crans-Sur-Sierre two weeks ago. He is also the highest ranked player in the field.
Ireland: Paul Dunne – Dunne has had two top tens this season, including at the recent Made in Denmark, and a host of other top 16 finishes. He’s a straight ball hitter which will suit the course in Milan too.
Scandinavia: Rikard Karlberg – The Swede is defending champion so he’ll surely be motivated to play well. Nobody has successfully defended the tournament since Belgium’s Flory Van Donck did so in 1947 but hopefully Karlberg can have a good week to at least become top scoring Scandinavian.
Rest of Europe: Martin Kaymer – Last year’s runner-up could really do with a victory to boost his confidence, having had to rely on a wildcard pick for the Ryder Cup. He has been on good form this year but still hasn’t won since the 2014 US Open.
Asia: Byeong-Hun An – The Korean came 3rd last week at the KLM Open and also finished T11th at the Olympics, expect him to earn you some points in Milan.
Australasia: Scott Hend – Will the Aussie win in Europe for the first time? He’s certainly been threatening it. Hend has 9 Asian Tour wins including two co-sanctioned with the European Tour. He’s coming off a T4th last week at the KLM and a 2nd at the European Masters to sit at 14th on the Race to Dubai.
