The Andersons of St Andrews
On a cool, misty, and properly Scottish afternoon in The Home of Golf, we passed through the ancient gates of the St. Andrews cemetery. There are few places in the word 'ancient' almost seems inadequate, but this is surely one of them. The St Andrews cathed...

A Day in the Life in Liverpool
Growing up, I really wasn't much of a reader. The irony of which is not lost on me, given the amount of hours I've poured into this website where reading is, you know, a fairly integral part. Oh sure, I read the required summer books for school - most of th...

Captivating Cambridge: Scones, Cathedrals, and Punting, Oh My!

An Introduction to Links Golf at Castle Stuart
After spending less than 24-hours in Scotland, it was apparent that some things are done a little differently across the pond. They drive on the other side of the road, traffic lights are mostly replaced by roundabouts, and the average American golfer could...

Nessie, Inverness, and the Left Side of the Road
In most circumstances, saying goodbye to your better half for over a month would be a rather somber occasion. Yet when I ditched MJ at London's Victoria Coach Station, I bolted out of there with more pep in my step than Gene Kelly during a thunderstorm. OK,...

London Calling - 18 Hours with The Queen
In the 10 years that we've been together, if there's one thing that MJ and I have mastered it's the art of the deal when it comes to traveling without one another. She plans a girls cruise, I go to Streamsong for a weekend of golf. I pay a visit to The King...
