This sporting life

Golf is big news at the moment with Rory McIlroy winning the US Open on Sunday so we're celebrating by taking a look at the sport in Orkney. This archive photograph, taken before the First World War, shows a group of golfers playing a round. The chaperone has unfortunately fallen asleep or else I'm sure she would not allow such blatant disregard for the rules of the Royal and Ancient. Is that any way to treat your mashie niblicks?!
