A Wee Nip at the 19th Hole: A History of the St. Andrews Caddie
Steeped in history and lore, the Old Course at St. Andrews is one of the meccas of golf. And yet, of all the great stories that have been played out on what are considered the most famous eighteen holes in the game, perhaps the most fascinating of all are those told by and about the legendary St. Andrews caddie. Written by Richard Mackenzie, the current caddie manager at St. Andrews Old Course and a former caddie himself, A Wee Nip at the 19th Hole is filled with the written and oral records of some of the game's great unknown sages. As every golfer is aware, the only thing better than playing the game is talking about it. Part history, part back-nine gossip, and pure entertainment, A Wee Nip offers golfing enthusiasts the next best thing to pulling up a stool at the nineteenth hole and sharing a pint - and a tale or two - with such unforgettable figures as Old Tom Morris, Trap Door, Poot Chisholm, and Stumpie Eye.
