I've been preparing for The Open Championship by reading Kevin Cook's Tommy's Honor and the new Roger McStravick new book on Old Tom Morris and St Andrews, while supplimenting the reading with various podcasts. Whether you're going or not, there is simply no excuse for not embracing the occasion to read, listen and consume all things St. Andrews.
If you aren't familiar with Ru Macdonald's Scottish Golf Travel podcast, make sure you subscribe wherever podcasts are subscribe to so you can get all the latest on Scotland golf.
If you want some St. Andrews aura in advance of The Open, check out his show about playing there as a single.
In episode 52, he talks to recent U. of St. Andrews graduate Graylyn Loomis about the St Andrews courses.
Graylyn also appeared on this show to talk about a trip to St. Andrews.
And on Tom Morris Day, Ru talked to David Joy about the fouding father of the modern game. In case you didn't know it, Old Tom's kind of a big deal there.
Also, we had Scott Macpherson on State of The Game to talk about his book on the Royals and about his interest in the evolution of St Andrews. Scott also took part in Q&A's here around the last Open to enlighten us on his St. Andrews book. Here and here.
This should keep you busy class. And best of all? There's no quiz to take. Just listening pleasure.
