Carlota Ciganda Disqualified from Evian Championships

Last updated on July 30th, 2023 at 07:36 am

Carlota Ciganda from Spain was disqualified from the Evian Championships after she refused a two-shot penalty due to slow play. According to gambling software reviews and news sites, she was completing her second round when rules officials penalized her with two strokes. They based the ruling on the LPGA Tour’s Pace of Play Policy.

Ciganda, ranked 31st in the world, would have missed the cut at the major at Evian-les-Bains, France, by one stroke had the penalty not increased his total to three over par for the round and six over par for the tournament.

According to bookie pay per head sources, rules officials heard and rejected Ciganda’s appeals. Also, she did not add the two-shot penalty to her scorecard before leaving the recording zone and signing it. As a result, officials disqualified her for signing an erroneous scorecard.

Ciganda disputed the rules officials’ allegation that it took her 52 seconds to putt in an Instagram post she made on Saturday, writing that the group behind her “were not even on the tee.”

This year, American golfer Patrick Cantlay’s time over shots at many PGA Tour tournaments sparked criticism among fans and players over the sport’s reputation for slow play.

According to the R&A and USGA’s rules, “a round of golf is expected to be played at a quick pace.” The standard time to complete a stroke is 40 seconds, with a few exceptions (first player on a par-3, first player on the green) receiving an additional 10 seconds.

Officials do not penalize the first instance of slow play. However, subsequent offenses result in one and two-stroke penalties. French golfer Celine Boutier has a one-shot lead heading into the final round of her home event on Saturday. The 29-year-old won by one stroke over the Thai golfer Patty Tavatanakit and the Japanese golfer Yuka Saso, scoring 69.
