About this title

Synopsis:

Profiles of caddies and anecdotes from over two hundred years of golf present the history and lore of the first golf course.

Review:

Golfers generally seek wisdom, instruction, inspiration, and sympathy from their reading on the game. A Wee Nip tees up something else: charm. A thoroughly delightful and spirited romp through the subculture of St. Andrews's caddies, it fondly chronicles how toting bags at the game's hallowed birthplace grew from the province of scoundrels--some of whom literally fell down drunk on the job--to a corps of thoroughly knowledgeable professionals. Written with flair and obvious affection by the links' current caddie manager, Richard Mackenzie, A Wee Nip at the 19th Hole is both a history and reminiscence, and, despite its wealth of photos and lore, it is a volume easily light enough to shoulder on your own.
