Garcia excited for Italian bow

Masters champion Sergio Garcia is looking forward to making his first appearance at this week's Italian Open.

The Spaniard missed the cut at the British Masters earlier this month, but he is looking forward to returning to action at Golf Club Milano this week, as he prepares to make his professional debut on Italian soil.

"Obviously it's a nice stretch with playing here in Italy and Spain next week, our tournament with my foundation," Garcia told the European Tour website.

"I've never played in Italy as a professional so I'm excited about it. I've played here many times as an amateur. I've heard good things about it so I'm very excited to have a nice week here. Amazing weather, and the food, so it's all good."

A high-quality field is set to compete in the Rolex Series event, with Garcia set to tee off alongside compatriot Jon Rahm and Race to Dubai leader Tommy Fleetwood during Thursday's opening round.

The world number 11 believes the calibre of player that has entered the tournament shows how highly regarded it is.

"You can see by the quality of the field that it's extremely good," he added.
