2.2 Whisky and golf
In terms of organisations and institutions, there is one sport in which rules and regulations drafted in Scotland have played a key role. The Royal and Ancient Golf Club of St Andrews sets the rules for golf worldwide (except for the USA and Mexico, but there is little divergence).
Other industries closely associated with Scotland also set out rules and regulations which have an impact worldwide. For example, the Scotch Whisky Association sets rules as to where single malt Scotch whisky can be bottled.
