English Liz Young defends the title.Alessandra Fanali, already in the top ten five times this year, comes from two good performances: a 6th place in the recent Big Green Egg Open, and a 9th in the KPMG Women’s Irish Open.
In her first year on the circuit, the golfer from Fiuggi has proven to be competitive on the tour. The other Italian in the race, Virgina Elena Carta, must find a good rhythm, who after 4 cuts not passed, in the previous Big Green Egg Open race ranked 42nd.The cut of the tournament will take place after the first 36 holes and will leave the top 60 ranked in the competition and those tied for 60th place.
The prize pool is 300,000 euros with the first coin of 45,000 euros.The Rules of Golf are a set of standard rules and procedures by which the sport of golf should be played. They are jointly written and administered by the Royal & Ancient Golf Club of St.
Andrews, the governing body of golf throughout the world, outside of the United States and Mexico, which are the responsibility of the United States Golf Association. An expert commission made up of members of the R&A and USGA oversees and refines the rules every four years.
The latest revision is effective January 1, 2016. Changes to the rules of golf generally fall into two main categories: those that improve understanding and those that in certain cases reduce penalties to ensure balance. The rule book, entitled “Rules of Golf”, is published on a regular basis and also includes rules governing amateur status.
In Italy it is up to Federgolf to supervise the competitions by enforcing the rules issued by the R & A, checking that these rules are observed by the Clubs, Associations and their members and managing the resulting sporting justice, protecting their interests abroad.
