While celebrating our recent Birthday we managed to take advantage of the good weather during this first Spring week of March and enjoy championship golf at the Old Course St Andrews, the historic Elie golf club and finally on Carnoustie Championship the 2018 Open venue, where Francisco Molinari won with exquisite golf.
The tee time on the Old Course was achieved using the local Ballot (lottery) system that gives golfers an opportunity to play the legendary Links course. The Old Course in these early months of Spring is readily available to all golfers who wish to travel, use the Ballot, and golf in St Andrews.

accepted. I am still here.
There is a lot to enjoy about working on the St. Andrews Links not least the friendships that have been made with my fellow caddies and golfers from across the world. These are ties that remain strong and true. It is also amazing to think that you have become a link to caddies and golfers that have gone before stretching back centuries.
A few golfers that stand out from the +1500 rounds I have caddied at St. Andrews were the courageous blind lady golfer who went round the Old Course in 124 shots, a determined one armed golfer that b…
