The World Golf Scientific Congress of Golf Trust today announced the dates of the Fourth World Scientific Congress of Golf. It will be held at the University of St. Andrews, Scotland from 23-26 July 2002 and it will again provide a forum for the international participation of both scientists and golf industry professionals.

Director of the Trust, Dr Eric Thain believes that the very broad range of scientific disciplines which have found golf to be an interesting and important area of investigation, guarantees a bright future for golf-related research. The Congress will again provide a focal point for the discussion of research results and issues, as well as their practical implementation.

"The objectives of the Congress are two-fold. Firstly to facilitate technical and scientific exchanges related to golf research between countries, institutions and individuals, as has been our trademark in the past. Secondly, to develop international cooperation and understanding between researchers and those in professional practice."

Since the 1998 Congress, The Trust has dramatically increased its ongoing services to both researchers and practitioners to include Golf Research Newsletters, the bi-monthly publication of Golf Science International, and access to library and database facilities. These are available through Membership Schemes specifically tailored for researchers and practitioners respectively. They both enjoy the benefit of funding from the R&A and the USGA.
