About Oliver

Oliver Horovitz is a writer, filmmaker, and caddie on the Old Course in St. Andrews, Scotland. He has written about his caddying experiences for Sports Illustrated, Golf World, and Golf Digest. He began caddieing in Gloucester, Massachusetts, summers, at age 12, 5’1″, and 93 lbs. His first summer, he was paid $20 to carry a 70-lb golf bag containing three six-packs of beer, but that’s another story.

Horovitz is a 2008 graduate of Harvard College. Before attending Harvard, he completed a gap year at the University of St. Andrews, in Scotland. In 2007, he wrote, directed, and produced a documentary called The Caddies of St. Andrews. He divides his time between New York City and St. Andrews, Scotland.

His biggest regret in life is forgetting to tell Huey Lewis about Cheape’s Bunker on the 2nd hole of the 2010 Dunhill Pro-Am Championship, causing a double-bogie.


“A must read.”

- Professional Golfers Association -


“An American Caddie in St. Andrews is a funny, charming, coming-of age tale about golf and life … Horovitz is a gifted writer, and an engaging storyteller … and he can read putts!”

- Huey Lewis - singer, songwriter, and actor


“This is a story you have to read before your next bogey. Oliver has his priorities spot on!”

- Gary McCord
