Teeing off in Scotland

I’m feeling lucky‚Ķ we just returned this weekend from a trip to Scotland and the fabled birthplace of golf, St. Andrews. Golf Digest sent me there on assignment to capture impressions of the town and the Old Course for their 2015 British Open package. Eventually I’ll be creating a notebook and doing paintings based on the photos taken by that most excellent photographer Leslie Flores (my wife).

How in the world do golfers get out of a trap like this, esp. with a ball up against the wall?

The Old Course is amazingly full of fairways right out of the Teletubbies. Leslie took this shot after 9PM.

The Royal and Ancient Clubhouse at midnight. It starts getting light again around 3AM.

We took a side trip to the wee village of Crail, 10 miles south along the North Sea.

We were accompanied by our caddie, daughter Lily.
