Jordan Smith 50/1 ew has been on my radar now for a few weeks and given he is one of the best "Total drivers" (distance combined with accuracy) over the last two seasons, Olgiata could be the course where he comes through again, similar to where he clicked at a lengthy Green Eagle track requiring brilliant driving and tee to green play. Jordan is currently 8th in strokes gained tee to green, 20th in SG: off the tee and 3rd in greens in reg. He is showing progressive 24-5 form and 50/60 to 1 looks tasty in this Italian Open field
