A Wee Nip at the 19th Hole
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. A Wee Nip at the 19th Hole.
