A Review of 2012/13

The R&A Annual Review 2012/13 recaps a busy year for game’s governing body. As well as a successful Open Championship at Royal Lytham & St Annes, won in dramatic fashion by Ernie Els, there was a busy schedule of amateur championships and international matches with one of the highlights being Matthew Fitzpatrick’s victory in the Boys Amateur Championship at Notts (Hollinwell) Golf Club. The Review looks at a range of international golf development projects supported by The R&A through the Working for Golf programme and looks back the year in the Rules, Equipment Standards, Course Management and Heritage departments. It also gives an update on the preparations for the return of golf to the Olympics at Rio in 2016.

The Working for Golf 2012 film focuses on The R&A's role in supporting the growth of golf around the world. It looks at how the funds generated by The Open Championship are re-invested to benefit the game.
