From North Berwick, we
went past Edinburgh and
across the Firth of Forth
to St. Andrews. Here I
am on the first fairway of
the Old Course at St.
Andrews with my faithful
caddy, Scruffy.
St. Andrews is named for Scotland's patron saint. The city is the
home of the oldest university in Scotland that was founded in
1411. However, I came to St. Andrews because it is the home of
the Royal and Ancient Golf Club. Golf has been played in St.
Andrews for about 600 years.
Here is a picture of me on
Swilken Bridge with the
clubhouse in the
background. Over the
years, many great golf
champions crossed the
Swilken Bridge as they
headed down the 18th
fairway to complete the
British Open.
