Next year, the Korn Ferry Tour will innovate with its first seven stages outside American soil (a record). Mainly in the Bahamas (from January 14) and South America. We will have to wait until April 4 for a first tournament in the United States.

The great KFT circus, and its 26 tournaments in total, will never leave Uncle Sam's lands until the final (October 3-6).

After the last four play-off tournaments and the conclusion of the Korn Ferry Tour Championship in Indiana, the 30 tickets for the following year's PGA Tour will be issued via the top 30 of the Points List.

As a reminder, Paul Barjon finished 8th in the Order of Merit after his victory in the final. The Frenchman will therefore play on the PGA Tour in 2024. 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 jurisdiction 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.

The rules of golf are relatively complicated compared to other sports because they are applied outdoors, close to nature and animals. Respect for the rules is a basic element in the game of golf, which, almost always based on the self-control and free conscience of the players, often sees distorted results, consciously at times, but often unconsciously or through carelessness, due to non-compliance on the part of many players of the game rules.

In addition to rules, golf adheres to a code of conduct, known as etiquette, which generally means playing the round with due respect for the golf course and other players. Etiquette is an essential component of this sport.
