NEW CHIEF EX­EC­U­TIVE, R&A

Na­tion­al­ity: English

A fresh face: Slum­bers took over from Peter Daw­son in 2015 and main­tains a rel­a­tively low pro­file. How­ever, any state­ment from the for­mer Deutsche Bank ex­ec­u­tive will be stud­ied for mean­ing as to the di­rec­tion of golf, from rule changes through to the on­go­ing tech­nol­ogy wars with man­u­fac­tur­ers to progress rather than an aid. Fast mover: Slum­bers won plau­dits for the speed of the R&A’s re­sponse when re­mov­ing the right of Muir­field to host the Open while it re­tained a men-only mem­ber­ship rule.
