country and Mexico, a combined territory that includes more than
half the game's golfers and golf courses.
The Association's most visible role is played out each
season in conducting 13 national championships, including the
U.S. Open, U.S. Women's Open and U.S. Senior Open. Ten
additional USGA national championships are exclusively for
amateurs, and include the U.S. Amateur and the U.S. Women's
The USGA also writes the Rules of Golf, conducts equipment
testing, maintains an official Handicap System and administers an
ongoing "For the Good of the Game" grants program,
which has allocated more than $56 million over 10 years to
programs that seek to grow the game. For more information about
