"It's dificult to take the decision not to play especially as it's also a European Tour event but I hope the players enjoyed a really impressive tournament.
I was quite surprised so many players struggled with the course. I think Marco and Alex made the course look easy and I was expecting more of the top players to feature.
Marco's performance was perfect - after hole 8 he was tied for the lead and kept playing his game. Alex didn't seem to have the luck when he needed it
I travel to Orlando for the US ProAm in two weeks - I loved the event last year in USA and it's always great to see Roberto and Laura. I am teamed with Pelliccioni, Otero and Perrone in the team event so I hope they don't let me down !"
