Italian teenager Matteo Manassero will make his professional debut at this week's BMW Italian Open on the PGA European Tour as Titleist's newest brand ambassador. Matteo turned professional earlier this week after a brief but decorated amateur career that included a win at last year's British Amateur Championship as well as low amateur honors at the 2009 Open Championship and 2010 Masters Tournament. Having just recently celebrated his 17th birthday, Matteo established himself as the youngest player to record a victory at the British Amateur and to compete and make the 36-hole cut at the Masters.
Persistent rain and soggy course conditions currently threaten the scheduled Thursday start of the BMW Italian Open. Be sure to check out EuropeanTour.com for the latest updates.

After Matteos great 'debut' Top 30 finish at the Italian Open last week in Turin, i've got a sneeky feeling that with his talent, he might even make this years Ryder Cup at the Celtic Manor Resort in Wales.
Now wouldn't that be an unbelievable last 2 years for him!!!
