The 17th Hole, "The Road Hole", The Old Course, 461 Yards, Par 4, The Royal and Ancient Golf Club of St. Andrews

The most famous golf tournament in the world returns to an equally famous golf course - The Old Course at St. Andrews - every few years. First played here in 1873, the tournament was won by Tom Kidd with a score of 179 from a then-record entry of 26 players. "The Road Hole," scene of so many historic shots, great and ghastly, plays havoc in the player's mind with the very thought of the gathering deadly embrace of the Road Bunker, and the awareness of the macadamized hazard beyond the green.

Linda Hartough
When you look at a painting of a golf course, it is important to see it as a golfer sees it and listen to what a great golfer has to say about it. "I am the proud owner of several paintings by Linda Hartough," says golf legend Jack Nicklaus, one of the greatest golfers in all sport, "and each time I look at one I see something new. Linda has a true feel for a golf course." "Whenever you see a Linda Hartough golf course rendering," says renowned golf course designed Robert Trent Jones, Sr., "you have to resist the urge to grab a club and drop a ball. Linda has the unique ability to capture, in a single solitary perspective, the very essence of the course itself." An interesting fate for a person who didnít grow up sharing her fatherís passion for playing the sport. But Linda Hartough is an artist first and foremost. She instinctively knew that something as complex and beloved as a golf course would have to be an exceptional landscape, with an attention to detail and clarity that surpasses a camera. Calling upon her experiences at the University of Louisville and the Art Institute of Chicago, Hartough approaches each work with an understanding but objective eye. The results have made her one of the popular and prominent artists in the field. In fact, she is the only artist ever commissioned by both the United States Golf Association and the Championship Committee of the Royal & Ancient Golf Club of St. Andrews to create the official paintings and prints for the U.S. Open and British Open championships. A veritable championship tournament of her work was released as Hallowed Ground: Golfís Great Places, a book with text by Jaime Diaz, published by The Greenwich Workshop Press.
