A centuries-old sport, golf is a national pastime of Scotland, and a game played around the world. Though it's become known as a sport for the rich and upper class, the game had far more humble beginnings, and as such has a pedigree and history in a wide range of lifestyles and age groups. And though it has evolved over the years, the heart of golf is still very much the same as the sport played and loved so many years ago by the father and son duo of Tom Morris Jr and Sr, and it's likely to continue on well into the future as more and more athletes rise to the challenge of being the very best, and embrace the same love of the game.
