In the United States and on the PGA Tour, Ludvig Aberg’s star shines. The Swede on St. Simons Island, Georgia, won the RSM Classic with a total of 253 (67 64 61 61, -29) shots, signing the new tournament record and celebrating his first career success on the top American circuit male.
The dream year of the 24-year-old from Eslov continues. Professional since last June, after winning the Omega European Masters (DP World Tour) he deserved one of the wild cards for the Ryder Cup in Rome where he achieved the feat together with the Europe team led by Luke Donald.
Now, a new goal has been reached in the USA where he dominated the scene, trailing the Canadian Mackenzie Hughes by four shots, 2nd with 257 (-25), and the Americans Tyler Duncan and Eric Cole by seven, both 3rd with 260 ( -22).
Ludvig Aberg, statements
“I did a really good job, with two final laps in 61 which, I think, I will never be able to repeat again. I am obviously happy but there is still a lot of work to do as well as the long road ahead”, the measured satisfaction of Aberg.
The success earned the Scandinavian 1,512,000 dollars for a total prize pool of 8,400,000. The Swede continues to break records, having already come close to achieving the feat several times on the PGA Tour. In the previous 12 races (the first two as an amateur), he has collected three Top 10s and a second place, after the playoffs, at the Sanderson Farm Championship.
And now the first exploit on the most important tour in the world, by one of the greenest talents on the green. 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 responsibility 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.
