Perhaps you’ve seen the four-minute video on YouTube. A golfer in a pink shirt and white shorts goes zipping around Bandon Dunes, playing shots and running with his bag. He putts everything out, pauses to rake a bunker, and records four birdies and 14 pars for a round of 68 in under 54 minutes.
When you go to Pinehurst—and you will—be sure to visit the Old Sport & Gallery in the Harvard Building in the village. There, amid the rows upon rows of books, the posters, the paintings, the pins and ball markers, the hickory clubs, the one-of-a-kind items like the 27,000-piece model of the Augusta National clubhouse or the Boris Yeltsin golf bag, you will likely find the shop’s proprietor, Tom Stewart.
