Tales from the Old Course: Mr. Tait


Mr FG Tait, a well known local and golf enthusiast over the links of the Old Course at St. Andrews, once, incredible as it now seems, drove his golf ball through a man's Tall Hat and subsequently had to pay the owner the princely sum of five shillings to purchase a replacement.

At the end of his round, now ensconsed in the bar of the St. Andrews Clubhouse, he was grumbling about his misfortune to the legendary Old Tom Morris about the injustice of this particular shot when the grand golf sage of St. Andrews interrupted him, "..eh, Mr. Tait, perhaps you ought to be glad it was only the cost of a new Tall Hat you had to purchase and not an oak coffin".
