The R&A (Royal and Ancient Golf Club of St. Andrews), the
world rules and development body of golf, has been in charge of the
Open Golf Championship since 1920, although the event actually
dates back to 1870, making it the oldest and most prestigious
golfing event in the world. A famously challening Major, known for
surprise results and dramatic climaxes, the British Open is
certainly not an event to be missed for golf fans in the UK.
