Well today was THE day! The reason why we crossed the ocean to come to this wonderful place, and the saddest we have been to ever finish a round of golf. Today we played the Old Course, at the home of golf, St Andrews! We woke up super excited, so much so I had butterflies in my stomach! Our tee time was at 12:20, and we made our way to the course at 9am... Eager much? We got our bearings, looked through some of the ...
