There are two great golfers who share a birthday today:

  • Annika Sorenstam, arguably the greatest female golfer in history.
  • Tony Korologos, arguably the best golf blogger in history.

Nice to share a birthday with one of the greatest ever, but Annika didn’t win TWO club championships at River Oaks in Sandy, Utah!

St Andrews Old Course has many famous bunkers.  There’s Shell Bunker, Hell Bunker… and of course the most famous bunker in all of golf, the Road Hole Bunker.  But on the St Andrews NEW Course (1895), did you know about the Yard Sale Bunker?

While playing on the New Course a few weeks ago a gust of wind (known as a “wee breeze” in Scotland) blew my lad Todd’s trolley (known as a push cart in the USA) into a bunker. I caught it before the wheel stopped spinning.

Video highlight from the back nine at Royal Aberdeen Golf Club in northeastern Scotland.  No, the beauty swing you see isn’t mine.  It’s my lad Shanego.  Nice little windmill serves as a backdrop.

I have a new favorite kind of crisps (known as chips here in the USA).  Yes, on my recent Scotland trip I enjoyed some haggis and cracked black pepper flavored potato crisps!

For those who don’t know what haggis is:

Haggis is a pudding containing sheep’s pluck (heart, liver and lungs); minced with onion, oatmeal, suet, spices, and salt, mixed with stock, traditionally encased in the animal’s stomach.

Yum!


Midnight Putting at Cruden Bay, Scotland

The Lads of Scotland (my golf buddies who converge in Scotland biannually) have a very fun tradition we’ve indulged in each of the (now) three times we’ve golfed in Scotland, midnight putting. The event usually follows 36 holes of golf, dinner, a few dozen wee pints, cigars, and a wee bottle of scotch.

The first two Scotland trips The Lads did the midnight putting event on the Himalayas, the putt-putt green next to the Old Course, and the 18th hole of the Old Course itself. I’m proud to have made a bogey on the 18th at The Old with my putter, in the dark, at 1 a.m.

This year we changed it up and had our midnight putting event on the beautiful 4th hole at Cruden Bay in northeastern Scotland. The 4th at Cruden provides some great drama with a gigantic false front, false right, and 14 foot grass bunker wall behind. Enjoy the video:

Lovely how the moon rose over the course. Yes, we raked the bunker when we were done…
