Marco Simone Golf & Country Club, official host of the Ryder Cup 2022, celebrated the arrival of the trophy with an extraordinary day of sport and solidarity. There was on “stage” an exceptional performance of two Ryder Cup Legends: Costantino Rocca (3 Ryder Cup) and Sam Torrance (8 Ryder Cup and one as a team captain), which competed in a 9 holes match play.

The president Laura Biagiotti and the vice presidents Lavinia Biagiotti Cigna and Fabio Virgilii, together with the honorary president Nicola Pietrangeli, several sport representatives and show celebrities, welcome the Trophy in the club’s house amphitheater starting with a ceremony led by the journalist Massimo Caputi which gives attention to Marco Simone’s young regional golf players under 12. A perfect passage of the baton between the icons of golf history Costantino Rocca, Sam Torrance and the young talents which represent the golden future of the Italian flag’s golf swing.
