This is the first time that the winner of two PGA Championships (2017 and 2022) will walk the course of Sun City (South Africa). As such, he will try to succeed Jim Furyk, the last American to win in 2006 at the Gary Player Country Club.

"I can't wait to experience all that South Africa has to offer," he said. It is a country that I have always wanted to visit and this tournament not only gives me the opportunity to do so, but also to participate in such a historic event.

This tournament has existed for more than 40 years thanks to the incredible involvement of Mr Gary Player. I can't wait to see what makes it so great…” “The support of the best American professionals has always been important throughout the history of the Nedbank Golf Challenge, explains for his part Gary Player, host of the place.

It's wonderful that Justin Thomas is adding to this legacy. I'm thrilled to see him make his Sun City debut and can't wait to see how a two-time Grand Slam champion fares at Gary Player Country Club". 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.
