There's trouble afoot in the Auld Grey Toon as golf writer Hacker at the world of golf arrive in St. Andrews for the playing of the Open Championship.
Before the tournament begins, a golf official is murdered and dropped into the Bottle Dungeon at St. Andrews Castle.
One prime suspect is a celebrity American resort developer. But there's a University professor trying to outlaw golf and disrupt the tournament. And shady Russians turn up everywhere--chasing a caddie friend of Hacker and serving cocktails for the Marquiss Cheape, who just happens to own the land beneath the famed Old Course.
Can Hacker solve the mystery before the tournament ends? Will his girlfriend Mary Jane enjoy her first visit to the Home of Golf? Does it rain in Scotland? Can you make bogey on the Road Hole without even trying?
Hacker's back and the Royal & Ancient will never be the same!
