Scotland's Caddies
By Kickntrue on 12/3/10
Christmas shopping stinks- so let me help you with something for the golfer with no needs.
Ron Colby made the right call when he insisted on packing his camera for a month-long golf trip to Scotland. By visit's end, the acclaimed filmmaker had enough great footage of yarn-spinning caddies and breathtaking courses to make an entire documentary, called Scotland's Caddies and now available on DVD.

Highlights of Scotland's Caddies include:

• Amusing anecdotes from career caddies like Jimmy Kelly (Gleneagles) and William Cowan (Prestwick), who share some of their stories over pints in local pubs.

• First-person tales of celebrity golfers including Michael Jordan, Sean Connery and Jack Lemmon, as well as former Presidents Bill Clinton and George H.W. Bush.

• The caddies' priceless takes on the tipping habits and personalities of golfers from different parts of America and the world.

• History lessons from Ronnie MacAskill, Director of Golf at Royal Aberdeen, and David Joy, star of a one-man show about Old Tom Morris.

• Stunning visuals of golf's most beloved layouts, including the Old Course at St. Andrews, Royal Dornoch, Kingsbarns and Machrihanish Golf Club.
Below are a couple clips to entice you. I must admit I'm quite a documentary nerd- they are pretty much all I watch on Netflix anymore, but this definitely looks fun and informative. Coby (who I had to look up on IMDB) looks legit having worked on big films back in the 80's with John Hughes and most recently on documentaries through his own studio Artists Confederacy.

It's $20 + S/H.
