Keep up-to-date with news from TheOpen.com and RSS
Opengolf.com now provides web feeds for news articles through RSS — an easy way to keep up with opengolf.com through the day. It is automatically updated as news stories are added.

RSS is short for Really Simple Syndication. It’s an XML file that can be read by special software or a web service you can use from your web browser. Put the address of our web feed into your reader, and it will display the latest headlines, each one with a synopsis and link that will take you to the full story.

That means you can stay in touch with many different sources of news and information. It’s quicker than revisiting a site several times a day to check for updates, and rather than having to look for new headlines, feed readers scan for updates and display them for you.

How do I use an RSS feed?
In general, the first thing you need is something called a news reader. There are many different versions, some of which are accessed using a browser, and some of which are downloadable applications. All allow you to display and subscribe to the RSS feeds you want.

Once you have chosen a news reader, all you have to do is click on the orange RSS button or drag the URL of the RSS feed into your news reader or by cutting and pasting the same URL into a new feed in your news reader.

Some browsers, including Firefox, Google Chrome, Opera and Safari, have functionality that automatically picks up RSS feeds for you. For more details on these, please check their websites.
