It worked for Brandon Stone when he won the ASI Scottish Open at nearby Gullane this summer and now Gary Orr has had the same experience when the hickory era “rubbed off” on him prior to his huge success at last week’s Staysure Scottish Seniors Open at Craigielaw. Gary Orr joined Englishman Paul Eales and Swede Jarmo Sandelin in a four-hole hickory challenge on Craigielaw’s academy course prior to the Staysure Tour Scottish Senior Open, which he also won in style (wearing plus fours!).
In this extraordinary stroke of luck, with winners of both big competitions practising with hickory clubs before their triumph, it may be seen as a good omen for the World Hickory competitors to do a little practice with clubs from Boris Leitzow, owner of the ‘Jack White’ hickory shop in Gullane, prior to the World Hickory Festival this year.
Three leading senior golfers took a trip back in time to the early years of the professional game today as an entertaining prelude to the Staysure Tour Scottish Senior Open at Craigielaw Golf Club in East Lothian.
It was not exactly the ‘Great Triumvirate’ of Harry Vardon, James Braid and J H Taylor, but Gary Orr, Paul Eales and Jarmo Sandelin certainly gave a passable imitation of the magnificent trio from the early decades of the 20th century.
