Dr. Tony Parker, the Historian at The World Golf Hall of Fame, generously lent this quote: “I very much enjoyed Taba’s chapter on The Claret Jug (from the “Terroir of Golf” book). I found it entertaining and accurately gives the background to the Claret Jug’s origin. She cleverly tied in the relationship of the “Auld Alliance” between Scotland and France and the advent of claret’s place in Scottish golfing society. This is a welcomed new wrinkle in the history of this great game of golf.” Read the chapter here.
