GSfMO#385 The story of a golferâ€™s dream: caddying on the fabled Old Course in St. Andrews. â€śAn American Caddie in St. Andrews – Growing Up, Girls, and Looping on the Old Courseâ€ť is the focus of a very entertaining Members Only episode with young author Oliver Horovitz. Being forced to take a gap year after getting accepted to Harvard, Oliver, a driven young man, chose to spend the next school year at University of St. Andrews in Scotland. He left home for the UK, took a full course load, joined the golf team, and had way too much fun to go home for the summer. This is the story of his eye opening summers waking up at 4:30a most mornings to line up at the caddie shack for the honor of escorting golfers of all shapes, sizes and skill levels at the renowned Home of Golf.
