The tournament began early in the morning with a special ceremony where the La Romana Golf Association (Asoglar) committee honored the memory of Haché Malkún and highlighted his contributions to the sports movement, especially golf.
The event was being played under the best ball format, in category A, in which players with a handicap of 0-12 will participate, while in category B, golfers with 13 to 24 handicaps will play, both categories will be 18 holes.
