3. Sandy Jones, chief executive of the Professional Golfers’ Association (PGA), chairman of the PGAs of Europe and trustee at the Ryder Cup European Development Trust

PGA professionals, through their leadership of initiatives such as the England Golf Partnership’s ‘Get into Golf’ programme and clubgolf in Scotland, are delivering wide and varied coaching programmes to golfers of all ages and abilities throughout the UK, and this has enormous influence over who plays golf and how much they enjoy it.

Directing it all is Sandy, who for years has commanded enormous respect from grass roots golf activists.

It is, after all, not just the PGA that he leads, but as chairman of the PGAs of Europe, the body that controls the Ryder Cup European Development Trust, which is he also a trustee of, he has overseen the investment of funds into several European golf projects, which was of particular benefit to Welsh golf clubs in 2010, just as it will be to Scottish clubs in 2014.
