Italian golfing star Costantino Rocca to star at Nailcote

The most successful male golfer that Italy has produced Constantino Rocca has been confirmed to play at this year’s Farmfoods British Par 3 Championship.

Rocca won five titles on the European Tour including the prestigious Volvo PGA Championship. In 1993, he became the first Italian to play in the Ryder Cup and also hit only the third hole-in-one in Ryder Cup history at Oak Hill.

In 1995, he finished runner-up at The Open after a four-hole playoff with John Daly. Rocca followed this up with two further Ryder Cup appearances in 1995 and 1997, both of which ended in victory for the European team. The Italian secured his only singles win in the latter tournament against none other than Tiger Woods to help Europe to the cup. 

Rocca made his European Seniors Tour debut at the 2007 Sharp Italian Seniors Open, and won his first senior tournament two weeks later at the Irish Seniors Open.

We are looking forward to giving Constantino a big British Par 3 welcome!
