In August we were out and about, hosting the Inaugural Bog Myrtle Trophy at St Andrews. For more about that, click HERE and HERE
But when we weren't out playing (or watching) golf we've been busy at the archive and thought we'd share some of the letters we've found relating to Crockett and Golf. Along the way hopefully we'll give you an insight into why we think it's an important and interesting project to get these letters digitised and available for you to read online. But that's some way into the future.
Here's what we've found so far:
1894 Crockett writes to Dan Mowatt saying he must learn how to play golf
1895 He spends no fewer than 8 weeks in St Andrews (much of it playing golf!)
1896 Crockett corresponds with Major Pond (among others) on the subject (among others)
1897 Crockett plays in a 3 ball match at the Old Course with Willie Auchterlonie, where Auchterlonie beats the course record
To find out more about the letters, including transcripts, click HERE or go to Explore the Archive section. It's the first tentative steps of a very big project, but worth a look all the same for a taste of what's to come.
