Growing The Game

July 27th, 2018

A peak TV audience of 1.5m tuned into BBC Two for the final round highlights of The Open on Sunday, July 22 and millions more will have seen reports from The Open included in the main news bulletins during the four days of the Champiosnhip.. We shall bring you more viewing and listening figures next week.

The fine weather and free entry for all children aged 16 with a paying adult encouraged many youngsters to attend. In the ‘R&A SwingZone’ the accent was on engaging with those youngsters and their families, as the Golf Foundation, Scottish Golf and the PGA all worked together to inspire children new to the sport.

GBN is building an archive of stories about How To Grow The Game and full details of all these activities will be kept permanently on file for future reference.
