The other results: Holland-Switzerland 6-2; Switzerland-Belgium 5-3; Belgium-Holland 5.5-2.5.

Mixed teams with four girls and six boys were on the field and in each match there was a foursome and two women's singles and a foursome and four men's singles. Italy fielded Guia Vittoria Acutis, Matilde Andreozzi, Diana Maria Casartelli, Giulietta Bertero, Bruno Frontero, Giampaolo Gagliardi, Alessandro Giovannini, Carlo Melgrati, Federico Randazzo and Luca Rimauro.

Guia Vittoria Acutis and Federico Randazzo obtained 3 points, winning the three matches played, and Carlo Melgrati, Giampaolo Gagliardi and Giulietta Bertero achieved 2.5 points (two successes and a draw) in a context in which everyone played well and given the contribution at least 1.5 points.

The team was assisted by coaches Alessandro Bandini and Camilla Mortigliengo. It is a success that confirms the growth of new generations where many interesting elements appear. It arrives in the aftermath of two appearances on the international field in very important competitions such as the Junior Solheim Cup and the Junior Ryder Cup in which Francesca Fiorellini, in both matches, and Giovanni Daniele gave their weighty contribution to the two victorious Team Europe Binaghi in the second.

A reward also for the quality of the work of the federal technical staff who puts the athletes in a position to express themselves at their best. 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.
