After that of the Ryder Cup in Rome, another recognition for Italian golf which, in 2024, will once again boast a player on the LPGA Tour. Roberta Liti will in fact play on the highest American women's circuit, alongside the best teams in the world, after having conquered one of the ten 'cards', ranking eighth in the order of merit of the Epson Tour.

The 28-year-old from Tuscany fulfilled her dream in Daytona Beach, Florida, where the Epson Tour Championship was staged, the final act of the second US pink circuit won by Auston Kim with a total of 265 (69 72 69 71, -7) shots.

At Liti, 47th with 281 (-7), it was enough to pass the cut to reap the fruits of work that started a long time ago. This season you have in fact come close to success several times, with a third place and two fourth places.

And now Liti will try to carve out a leading role on the 2024 LPGA Tour, with the aim of qualifying for the Paris Games.

Roberta Liti, results

She is in strong growth, the Italian women's movement. Which focuses heavily on its youth sector, among the best in the world.

At an amateur level, the results obtained this year are important, especially by Francesca Fiorellini who played and won as a protagonist both the Junior Solheim Cup in Spain and the Junior Ryder Cup in Italy. The Ladies European Tour (LET) is the professional circuit for female golfers (proettes) created in 1979, based in England.

Most of the golfers who participate are European but it is possible to see golfers of non-European nationality, the largest contingent of which is Australian. It is the equivalent of the LPGA for the European continent. Its mission is to organize and set up the various tournaments of the year, these can be organized outside Europe and/or be registered with another circuit (such as the Evian Masters which is also registered on the LPGA Tour).

Each year is rewarded with several trophies. The European Order of Merit is a ranking established on the victories obtained during the season. In the past, this ranking has sometimes used a points system. The Player of the Year, best player of the year, is a trophy whose winner is determined by a vote of the members of the circuit. This vote should reward the most brilliant player of the season.
