Throughout golf’s long history, few players are more famous than “Old Tom” Morris of St. Andrews, Scotland. The Scrapbook of Old Tom Morris, by David Joy, is truly a unique presentation of the life and golf career of this legendary figure. Through vintage photographs, articles, letters, and contemporary commentary, you are taken back over 100 years to the home of golf. There, you learn what it was like for Tom to grow up in Scotland in the 1800s.
But you also learn what golf was like at that stage in its history, and how Morris became such an important part. His four victories in the Open Championship, his many years as head professional at St. Andrews, his career as one of the first true course architects, and the equally legendary but tragic life of his son “Young Tom” Morris are all part of this informative scrapbook.

Inspired by British Royality, 'The Scrapbook of Old Tom Morris' is the most unique and one-of-a-kind book ever published. Old Tom Morris was golf's first superstar- a golf professional, club maker, greenkeeper and architect- all at the home of golf- St. Andrews. The scrapbook, assembled by David Joy, contained minutes from the R&A annual meetings, the original rules of golf, vintage photographs, scorecards from the early Open's and famous challenge matches, and a view into the life of an incredible man. The 'Scrapbook' would not have been published, had Prince Andrew not asked to see the book when David Joy was reading from it at a private dinner party at St. Andrews...
...once he saw it, he asked if he could take it home for the night. Joy reluctantly handed it over, and when he met with Prince Andrew in the morning, the royal just raved about the 'Scrapbook'. Once we heard the story, and saw the book for ourselves, we had to make copies and share this treasure with golfers all over the world.
