In the 19th century, Musselburgh was a hotbed of golfing genius and the local links produced five Open Champions. One of these was Willie Park Junior. More than a good golfer, he redefined the image of the golf professional and took the game from being an esoteric pastime to its present status as a world game. As well as winning the Open in 1887 and 1889, Willie played challenge and demonstration matches at home, in Europe and in North America. His workshops turned out golf balls and clubs to his own design and he had retail outlets in Edinburgh, Manchester, London, New York and Montreal. He designed and laid out over 100 golf courses in the British Isles and Western Europe. When he published "The Game of Golf" in 1896 it was the first book on the game written by a professional. World War I killed off Willie's activities at home, so he moved across the Atlantic. Concentrating on course design he engineered over 40 courses in the US and 20 in Canada. Willie Park was the epitome of Scottish Victorian enterprise. Though not alone, he was the most active of missionaries, taking the skills and equipment of a local game to what were then the two major continents.

Sporting Scots is the remarkable story of how the Scots brought sport to the world. Many of the world's greatest sports, now enjoyed by billions around the globe, either started in Scotland or had a Scottish influence that has made them what they are today. Scots not only invented golf, they also laid down the rules, developed the game and exported it to America and beyond. Scotland also hosted the world's first international football match, and Scots were instrumental in establishing the game as we know it today. Scotland can also lay claim to hosting the first rugby international, and the list of achievements in football, golf, rugby, horse racing, motor racing, cricket, baseball, tennis, boxing and many other sports is truly immense. Sporting Scots now celebrates this extraordinary sporting heritage and the men and women who took modern sport from Scotland to the world. And what a truly incredible story it is.

This book tells the story of the Scottish golf professionals who came to America in 1888 and struggled to earn a living and the respect of the wealthy amateur golf establishment and the United States Golf Association who controlled the sport. Charles "Chay" Burgess--founder of the New England PGA, teacher of three American national champions, and the savior of the Ryder cup--learned the game on ancient seaside links and competed against British greats. His arrival in the U.S. dramatically influenced the growth of golf and the reconciliation of differences between amateurs and professionals. In 1913, the American Francis Ouimet--a working-class unknown under Burgess' tutelage--won the U.S. Open against British celebrities Ted Ray and Harry Vardon. His triumph brought the game to mainstream America.
