How to subscribe to our news feeds

By subscribing to our News RSS feeds you'll get the latest golf news and developments around the world as soon as we release them.

RSS is short for Really Simple Syndication. It's an XML file that can be read by special feed reading software or a web service you can use from your web browser. Put the address of our RSS feed into your reader, and it will display the latest headlines, each one with a synopsis and link that will take you to the full story.

That means you can stay in touch with many different sources of news and information. It's quicker than revisiting a site several times a day to check for updates, as feed readers scan for updates and display them for you.
