The golf world's penultimate landmark - The Swilcan Bridge crossing the Swilcan Burn on the 18th Hole of The Old Course at St. Andrews - marks the first time that Linda Hartough has focused her considerable talents on both an historic structure and a breathtaking course landscape. From Old Tom Morris and Wille Park, to Jack Nicklaus and Tiger Woods, the Swilcan Bridge has come to represent the crowning moment of each Open Championship played at The Old Course. As the player crests the Swilcan Bridge and pauses to acknowledge the spectators, flashbulbs erupt and the images resonate through history. Linda's unique perspective - which transcends any photographic image - captures not only this hallowed stone bridge, but also the intrinsic beauty of the Village of St. Andrews. With the Royal and Ancient Clubhouse looming majestically in the background, The Swilcan Bridge is sure to become one of Linda's most recognized works.


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.
