Invited by her equipment manufacturer to participate in a demo with Rickie Fowler, the world number 1, Nelly Korda, almost destroyed the drone which was filming the wedging sequence. Bitten by a dog, Nelly Korda withdrew from the Aramco Series tournament in London scheduled on the Ladies European Tour calendar but that did not stop the American from creating a buzz on social networks.

This is what happened on the Ladies European Tour.

The world number 1, who participated in a clinic with his PGA Tour compatriot, Rickie Fowler, distinguished himself by sending his ball directly to the drone positioned about fifty meters from the two players during a competition of precision !

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.
