R&A Jacket CoverA must-have for every golfer, the R&A Golfer’s Handbook was first published in 1899 and has kept golfing enthusiasts up to date with every fact and figure from their favourite sport including golfers of the year, Word Amateur Rankings, club listings, reports and topical columns.

This brand new edition for 2013 includes full results from professional and amateur tournaments, articles from leading golf writers and a full overview of all the year’s golfing events.

Among the top international golf writers contributing articles to this year’s edition are Dan Jenkins, James Lawton, Derek Lawrenson, Tim Rosaforte, Art Spander, James Corrigan, Lewine Mair, John Huggan, Bill Elliott and Mike Aitken.

The R&A Golfer’s Handbook is the ultimate reference guide to the world of golf – a book that no true player, fan or follower should be without.

For the first time in many years the front cover does not feature the current Open Champion Ernie Els. Ernie appears on the book’s spine and the front cover features Rory McIlroy.

The publishers have explained that the decision to have these two photos on the cover is an attempt to appeal to both the established readership and a new audience. At £20 for nearly 1,000 pages, the paperback edition is certainly very affordable.
