Kipp Popert again. The Englishman also dominated the G4D Tour @ ISPS HANDA World Invitational presented by AVIV Clinics, taking his seventh win on the circuit with 135 (69 66, -9) strokes, the only player to finish under par, detaching Canadian Kurtis by ten lengths Barkley, second with 145 (+1), and eleven for the Swede Ramus Lia, who won the Disabled-Sanofi Italian Open last April, and the American Chris Biggins, third with 146 (+2).

G4D Tour, Kipp Pobert

In the seventh event of the nine seasons of the G4D Tour 2023, the circuit now in its second season and reserved for disabled players, promoted by the DP World Tour with the aim of increasingly highlighting the inclusiveness of a sport open to all, ranked in fifth position with 149 (74 75, +5) Tommaso Perrino, who recently made his own the European Championship of the category and who, on this occasion, was defending the title conquered last year.

Behind him the Irish Brendan Lawlor, sixth with 150 (+6), and the Spanish Juan Postigo Arce, seventh with 151 (+7). Impressive the march of Pobert, 25 years old, who seems to have no rivals. He competed in six of the seven tournaments on the calendar, winning three and finishing second in the other three, while in the first year he won four times out of seven events, with one second and two fourth places.

Others scored in 2023 Postigo Arce (two successes), Lawlor and the South African David Watts, while in 2022 Perrino, Lia and the English Mike Brown obtained a title. 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.
