Robert Rock Wins Italian Open for His First European Tour Golf Title

Robert Rock held off a final-round charge from Thorbjorn Olesen to win golf’s Italian Open for a maiden success on the European Tour.

England’s Rock finished on 21-under-par 267 in Turin after a final-round 67, one shot ahead of countryman Gary Boyd and Denmark’s Olesen. Scotland’s Peter Whiteford was fourth, a further shot back.

Olesen had a 10-under round today but misses out on his first European Tour success.
