We return to the Albatross Golf Resort in Prague, where it has been competing since 2014, for what is not only a traditional appointment on the DP World Tour calendar. The D+D Real Czech Masters, in fact, serves as the penultimate qualifying tournament , at least in a European key, for the six places that lead directly to the Ryder Cup, without having to resort to the motu proprio choices of Luke Donald and his team of vice-captains.

Francesco Molinari, schedule

Francesco Molinari has recently been added to this, who goes to keep his brother Edoardo company. Both, as well as Renato Paratore, will be at the start of the Czech event. In favor of the presence of "Chicco" plays the fact of having changed everything in his life, bringing it back from the States to his Italy.

Nonetheless, he'll have to look to understand not the six automatic seats for Ryder, but the other six. Moreover, an entry list of excellent level for Europe runs to his rescue: the two Hojgaards, the Irishman Shane Lowry, the Frenchman Victor Perez, the Spanish Adrian Otaegui.

Basically, there are many of the names vying to keep company with the McIlroy-Rahm-Hovland trio, who already has the qualification in his pocket. However, the one who starts from an evident favorable position, at least in the European points list, is the Scotsman Robert MacIntyre, one who would like to go to the Marco Simone who made him in 2022 by beating McIlroy himself.

The German Yannik Paul and the Polish Adrian Meronk are chasing him. Francesco Molinari is an Italian golfer. He is the younger brother of Edoardo Molinari. On 22 July 2018 he entered the history of Italian golf by becoming the first Italian to have won a major tournament with the conquest of the 147th British Open.

On 18 November 2018 he won the Race to Dubai and became the first Italian in the history of golf to win the prize for best European player. He entered the history of world golf during the 42nd edition of the Ryder Cup held in France in 2018, becoming the first player to win 5 out of 5 matches bringing as many points to the European team, moreover it is his last point that gave the trophy to the hosts, defeating world-famous champion Phil Mickelson in a one-sided match.

His collaboration with the English player Tommy Fleetwood will also remain in history, a couple of great fame who remained unbeaten in all the matches played.
