Working for Golf 2011

A film chronicling the past year at The R&A will premiere on Sky Sports on Wednesday, 21 December.

The hour long programme, to be broadcast at 8pm on Sky Sports 3, covers the full range of The R&A’s work aimed at supporting and growing the game across the globe. The programme will also be repeated on the same channel at 1am, 8am and 1pm the following day (Thursday, 22 December).

Based in St Andrews, The R&A organises The Open Championship, major amateur events and international matches and, together with the United States Golf Association (USGA), governs the game worldwide.

Working for Golf 2011 looks at another busy year for the organisation including the launch of the latest Rules of Golf, work with R&A Ambassadors Padraig Harrington and Suzann Pettersen along with golf development and course management projects from South America to North Africa.

It also features action from The Open Championship and other major amateur events organised by The R&A including the Boys Amateur Championship, the Amateur Championship and the Walker Cup.
