An American Caddie in St. Andrews:
Growing Up, Girls, and Looping on the Old Course
After finishing high school in New York City, Oliver Horovitz was accepted to Harvard University. But there was a problem; he couldn't start until the following year. With time on his hands and a long-standing love of golf, the solution was obvious: a gap year at the University of St. Andrews in Scotland, alongside the iconic Old Course, known around the world as 'The Home of Golf.' At the end of term, Ollie joined the St. Andrews caddie trainee program and spent the summer lining up at the caddie shack, looping two, sometimes three, rounds a day, with the notoriously gruff veteran caddies. And so began an adventure that would change his life in unexpected ways.
