Ras Al Khaimah Championship, results

The trio of leaders commands with a score of -11 (133 hits) and boasts a length of margin over a quartet of pursuers made up of the English Dale Whitnell and Daniel Gavins, the Dutch Wil Besseling and the Japanese Ryo Hisatsune, who commanded yesterday.

-9 and eighth solo position for the English Matthew Baldwin, who precedes his compatriots Callum Shinkwin and Matthew Jordan, the South African George Coetzee, the Swede Alexander Bjork, the French Matthieu Pavon and the Dane Marcus Helligkilde by a length.

On the par 72 course of the Al Hamra Golf Club in Ras Al Khaimah (United Arab Emirates) Edoardo Molinari does not go beyond the daily par remaining at -6. For the Turinese 19th provisional place in the company, among others, of the Spaniard Adri Arnaus. Nothing to do for Guido Migliozzi instead, who runs into the +2 of the day and +1 overall, slipping to the hundredth position: thus he greets the kermesse of the Emirates. Tomorrow space for the third round which will skim the rankings even more. Very short leaderboard today with more than twenty golfers enclosed in just 5 shots.

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 maintained by the Royal & Ancient Golf Club of St. Andrews, the governing body for golf worldwide, outside of the United States and Mexico, which are governed by 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 has been in force since 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 manages the resulting sporting justice, protecting their interests abroad.
