On the La Cigale Tabarka Golf course, in the city from which the club takes its name, 122 competitors representing 18 nations will compete, including eight of the top ten players in the money list led by Edoardo Raffaele Lipparelli, winner of the previous New Giza Open in Cairo.

The Italian is among the favorites along with the Frenchmen Aymeric Laussot (no. 2), who won the Ein Bay Open, the event that inaugurated the 2024 circuit, and Nicolas Muller (no. 7), Enrico Di Nitto (no. 6), Manfredi Manica (no.

10), the Spaniards Eduard Rousaud (no. 5) and Borja Martin (no. 8), and the Austrian Lukas Lipold (no. 9). Other contenders for the title include Jacopo Vecchi Fossa, Filippo Bergamaschi, Luca Cianchetti, Gianmaria Rean Trinchero, Andrea Romano, the Frenchmen Damien Perrier and Benjamin Kedochim, the Swiss Luca Galliano, the Spaniards Mario Galiano Aguilar, Jorge Maicas, and Manuel Morugan, and the Irishmen Robert Moran and Paul McBride.

The prize money is €45,000. The rules of golf are a set of standard norms and procedures that govern how the sport of golf should be played. They are jointly written and managed by the Royal & Ancient Golf Club of St.

Andrews, the governing body for golf worldwide, except in the United States and Mexico, where they fall under the jurisdiction of the United States Golf Association. A panel of experts composed of members from the R&A and USGA oversees and refines the rules every four years.

The latest revision has been in effect since January 1st, 2016. Changes to the rules of golf generally fall into two main categories: those that enhance understanding and those that, in certain cases, reduce penalties to ensure fairness.

The rule book, titled "Rules of Golf," is regularly published and also includes regulations governing amateur status. In Italy, Federgolf is responsible for overseeing competitions, ensuring compliance with the rules issued by the R&A, monitoring that these norms are observed by clubs, associations, and their members, and managing the resulting sports justice while protecting their interests abroad.
