R&A Championship micrositeThe R&A has launched a new microsite for its amateur Championships, events and international matches.

It is the first dedicated microsite profiling the ten prestigious events The R&A manages, aside from The Open Championship, including The Amateur Championship, the Walker Cup, and the Boys’ Amateur Championship.

It has been launched ahead of the 118th staging of The Amateur Championship which is underway at Royal Cinque Ports and Prince’s and runs until 22 June.

The stand-alone microsite, which is supported by Rolex, features video highlights from championships, draws and live scoring from events, an events calendar, news updates and links to the World Amateur Golf Rankings.

Feeds from The R&A’s social media channels will enable users of the website to follow the latest news from its amateur events throughout the golf season.

Michael Tate, Executive Director – Business Affairs at The R&A, said, “The new microsite will provide a wealth of lively and engaging content from The R&A’s amateur Championships including video highlights and the latest scoring. We are grateful to Rolex for their support in helping us to develop this platform which will give these historic championships a dynamic new digital presence.”

The other events featured on the website are the Junior Open Championship, the Boys’ Home Internationals, the Seniors Open Amateur Championship and the St Andrews and Jacques Leglise Trophies.
