International Journal of Golf Science (IJGS) is a refereed publication and is the official journal of the World Scientific Congress of Golf (WSCG). The WSCG was initiated in St. Andrews, Scotland, and held its first WSCG meeting in 1990. Alastair Cochran and Martin Farrally established the World Scientific Congress of Golf Trust to support the organization through 2002. The meetings were held every four years in St. Andrews, Scotland (1990, 1994, 1998, 2002) with interim (smaller) conferences held in Ireland (1992, 2001) and the USA. The mission of the WSCG is to bring together researchers, professionals, and interested golfers in the areas of The Golfer, The Golf Course, and Equipment and Technology. The goal of the meetings is to present the latest research information to each other and to golf enthusiasts. The WSCG is a member of the International Council of Sport Sciences.
The research, keynote and invited presentations, workshops and Distinguished Speakers forum are designed to represent innovative and diverse topics in the game of golf, similar to the game of life. Presenters come from all over the world to share their expertise and provide a platform for discussion to further our knowledge in the game of golf.
Manuscript submissions for IJGS may address a wide range of issues including research articles about the golfer, golf equipment and technology, golf analytics, golf business and management, or the golf course.
