Golf History from the Motherland
Let me introduce you to Niles, a facinating chap from the land where golf history was made!
Niles has retired of late from a position as head butler for a family in Great Britain and has come to
America seeking a new life. We recently met at my favorite coffee house and found a common bond through our interest in the rules of golf. Although he has never played, he is quite an authority on golf history,
as well as, the rules.
Following a day of
and heavy betting between Knothead and Hoss, Niles often finds himself as the
mediator when they bicker over a particular violation of the rules.
Being the perfect gentleman, he always comes up with a solution that keeps their friendship in tact.
Some folks perceive Niles to be stiff, arrogant and a bit of a bore, but I think he adds a touch
of class to the Pals. He has agreed to give you some of his charming takes on
The Rules of Golf,
along with little tidbits of golf history.
Back to the Pals.
