4 May 2016, St Andrews, Scotland: The Royal and Ancient Golf Club of St Andrews has announced that Keith Macintosh will serve as Captain in 2016/17.

Mr Macintosh has been nominated as Captain by the past Captains of the Club and will begin his year in office with the traditional driving-in ceremony on the first tee of the Old Course on Friday 23 September 2016.

A distinguished amateur golfer, Mr Macintosh won the Scottish Amateur Championship at Prestwick in 1979 and the Belgian Open Amateur Championship the following year.
