On the course of the Naxhelet Golf Club (Par 72), in Wanze, Belgium, Schmidt – in her first year on the LET – detached her compatriot Chiara Noja and the Spanish Maria Hernandez by two strokes, second with 207 (-9).

Patricia Isabel Schmidt, 27, from Stuttgart, got the card after a good season on the LET Access Series last year (fourth on the money list) and with a great start on the LET this year, she is currently in the top ten in the Race To Costa del Sol (order of merit).

After graduating from high school, the young German golfer moved to Savannah, Georgia to Armstrong State University to study physics and play on the varsity golf team. Back in Germany, she started studying mechanical engineering at the University of Stuttgart, which she completed in 2020.

Since then she has devoted all her energies to golf. For her a check for 45,000 euros on a prize pool of 300,000. Excellent performance by the Lombard Clara Manzalini who with three laps under her par was up to the end in the fight for her first title.

Good comeback also by Virginia Elena Carta who with a final round in 69 (-3) recovered 14 positions. 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 maintained by the Royal & Ancient Golf Club of St.

Andrews, the governing body for golf worldwide, outside of the United States and Mexico, which are governed by 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 has been in force since 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 manages the resulting sporting justice, protecting their interests abroad.
