American Caddie in St. Andrews
St Andrews, known around the world as the home of golf, is legendary, and its history and traditions are deeply embedded in the local community that has kept it going for centuries. The caddies on the Old Course are a font of knowledge and an institution in their own right. Into this venerable institution steps Oliver Horovitz, a young American Harvard student and keen golfer on a gap year at the University of St Andrews. During this year, his most important discovery by far is that everyone at St Andrews plays golf including very cute girls. When term ends, Ollie joins the St Andrews caddie trainee program and spends the summer awaking at 4.30am to line up at the caddie shack, looping two, sometimes three, rounds a day. After months of struggling to gain acceptance from the notoriously gruff, perpetually hungover veteran caddies, he finally earns his full caddie stripes. Full of life and drama, this is a warm and insightful view of the vibrant characters who inhabit this world, along with all their idiosyncrasies, it is also a tale of growing up and finding ones place in the world, against the brilliant green backdrop of the Old Course, and will appeal to golfers up and down the UK.
