One good Italian golfer is Matteo Manassero. At only 22 years of age, he is the youngest golfer to win a European Golf event. When Manassero was just 16 he finished 13th at Open Championship. Another great golfer from Italy is Francesco Molinari, who has won three tournaments on the European Tour, but most notably won the British Open in 2018.
