- Paratore’s second European Tour win came on the back of some improved ball striking compared to the beginning of his 2020 campaign. The Italian found more than 70 percent of Close House’s greens in regulation, ranking him 11th in the field, an improvement that also saw him record just two bogeys for the week. The 23-year-old’s iron set makeup combining two utility irons replacing long irons commonplace on Tour, while using different shaft models in the hollow-body clubs than his iron set is slightly unique.
- Having emerged as a promising prospect in Europe after claiming his maiden win at the 2017 Nordea Masters, Paratore signed an equipment deal with Callaway that sees him use the company’s equipment throughout the entire bag. His win on Saturday the second for the company since the European Tour resumed, alongside Marc Warren’s co-sanctioned win in Austria.
- One of the few Tour players to wear his glove while putting, Paratore is in the top tier for driving distance on the European Tour averaging over 320 yards per drive with the low spin MAVRIK Sub Zero model.
