Did you know?

During a stellar amateur career, Pedersen won many prestigious titles, including the European Ladies Amateur in 2013 and British Ladies Amateur in 2014. Turning professional in 2015, she recorded some impressive runner-up finishes, before landing the Women's Indian Open title in 2015, and becoming the Ladies European Tour's Rookie of the Year.

Pedersen had to wait until 2020 for further wins on the Ladies European Tour. Four victories came in relatively quick succession in the second half of the year, allowing Pedersen to romp away with the Tour's 2020 Order of Merit.

Marco Simone Golf & Country Club: With a clubhouse that might befit a Roman Emperor, and a golf course to match, you can be sure of a memorable outing at Rome's most talked about golf facility.
