I want to dedicate the success to my family.” It’s the joy of the 25-year-old who reserved the first call for his father immediately after achieving success. “For me – said the Scot – he made incredible sacrifices, I made him proud and I’m proud of that”.

Prologue: South Africa’s DP World Tour of golf travels to Doha for the Commercial Bank Qatar Masters scheduled for March 24-27. Six blues will compete at the Doha Golf Club: Guido Migliozzi, Renato Paratore, Edoardo Molinari, Nino Bertasio, Andrea Pavan and Lorenzo Gagli. It is expected that Migliozzi from Vicenza who, in 2021 and after a great comeback in the final round, almost won by finishing second.

Among the favorites the day before are South Africans Dean Burmester (finalist last week in South Africa), George Coetzee, Justin Harding (his tournament in 2019) and Wilco Nienaber. Without forgetting the Spaniards Adri Arnaus and Jorge Campillo (winner in 2020).
