Among the competitors in the competition were Italian golfers Guido Migliozzi, who won in 2022 and finished only 47th this year with a score of 283 (-1), and Renato Paratore, who was a top performer in the first and fourth rounds.

Italian golfer Edoardo Molinari was the best-performing Italian in this tournament, finishing 28th overall with a score of 280 (-4). The Le Golf National course was the scene of the 2018 Ryder Cup and will also be a venue for golf events at the 2024 Olympics.

The world of golf will now pause for the upcoming Ryder Cup, which will take place between September 29 and October 1, 2023, in Rome, at the Marco Simone Golf & Country Club. It promises to be a historic event, as it will be the first time the United States team will compete in Italy in the Ryder Cup's almost centennial history.

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.
