What hasn’t already been said about the legendary Sun Studio. It’s the birthplace of Rock and Roll where the King himself, Elvis Presley, cut his first records…as did other notables like Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis and Roy Orbison. But what is often overlooked is the founder of Sun Studio, Sam Phillips, was consumed by the sound of the blues. In fact, it was the blues that lured Phillips to Memphis so that he could record black musicians from the Delta. In the early 50’s, years before Elvis came through the door, Phillips recorded the likes of Howlin’ Wolf, Little Milton, B.B. King, James Cotton and Rufus Thomas. Floyd had lived in Memphis as a kid so on our first trip down south we went to Memphis looking for his family. While we were there Joel wanted to go visit Sun Studio but nobody would go with him. On our next trip to Memphis, Joel was determined to visit Sun Studio so he booked a recording session. Hey for 85 bucks an hour to stand and record on hallowed ground seems like a bargain. There were no real expectations that evening other than letting Joel have a little fun. No new songs were attempted except for one little gem that surfaced at the end of the session. The result was a cross between the blues and an old time church spiritual…very eerie. Have a listen.

In this episode for *******www.HomeofGolf.TV I am joined by registered Old Course caddie John Boyne of *******www.CaddieGolfTours**** and he explains to me what life is like as a caddie here in St Andrews and talks me through how to play the famous 17th Road Hole on the Old Course. This video was made possible by the kind assistance of Mike Woodcock at The Links Trust. Visit StAndrewslinks.Allianz**** to see Mike in the Working at the Home of Golf section under Community. Life as an Old Course Caddie John is in his 8th season as an Old Course caddie, having started purely by accident back in 2002. He explained to me how his wife encouraged him to join a caddie program she saw advertised in a golf magazine, which was organized by the Caddie Master at the Old Course. John signed up, completed a 4 day training course and 8 years on he is enjoying caddying on the Old Course for up to 160 rounds a year. The Old Course caddies season begins properly in mid-May, which is when I shot this episode. From May through to the end of October, the main golf season at the Old Course, the caddies work full-on typically doing 36 holes a day. John told me that as well as himself, the St Andrews Links Trust has 132 caddies who are working for them this year on the Old Course as well as caddying on the other six St Andrews Links courses which are also open to the public. Caddies are all self-employed and some of them work 11 rounds a week. When winter descends on St Andrews and the Old Course becomes less busy many of these caddies jet off to Naples in Florida or Las Vegas to caddie for 5 months. I followed John down to the Caddie Pavilion on the Old Course, which is a second home to the caddies. They spend the first part of their day there until they are booked to go out caddying. In the high season the first tee time on the Old Course is 6.30am and thus caddies are often seen arriving an hour beforehand. John explained to me that he feels very privileged to work as a caddie on the Old Course. Besides helping him stay in good physical condition, it also has other perks. Every day he gets the chance to meet lots of different people from all over the world who come to play the most famous golf course in Scotland. The stories which John shared with me during the filming of this episode about people he has caddied for are both amusing and give an invaluable insight into life as an Old Course caddie. Some golfers John has caddied for come back on repeat visits to play the Old Course. During the 4.5 hours out on those hallowed grounds its easy to see how friendships are forged and John told me that that many golfers keep in contact with him throughout the year. He believes that when you visit Scotland life and golf are inextricably linked together. After years of being asked by golfers for his recommendations on where to stay and where to play golf in St Andrews John started up his own golf tour company at CaddieGolfTours****. He offers straightforward honest advice, for a very reasonable fee, about accommodation to suit your budget and his tips on how to get onto St Andrews golf courses as quickly as possible. John also offers information on booking golf vacations in other parts of Scotland too. If you ever visit St Andrews to play the Old Course I highly recommend hiring a caddie before setting foot onto that infamous first tee. A knowledgeable caddie like John can help you to take at least five shots off your game with his reads, club selection, target strategies and lines off the tees on this championship course. A caddie can also assist in protecting your score by helping you deal with the legendary windy weather which many experience on this course. John's blog is at *******wwwcaddiegolftours.blogspot****/
