Andrew Strath
St Andrews/Prestwick
Andrew Strath Born in 1836, Andrew was, with Davie and George, one of three renowned St Andrews golfing brothers.

He began as a greenkeeper at Musselburgh, and an apprentice clubmaker, but any money he made was from partnering Old Tom Morris in challenge matches with their appearance money, prize money and side bets.

He broke the domination of Old Tom and Willie Park Senior in the early Open Championships by winning in 1865. In the same year he succeeded Old Tom as Keeper of the Green at Prestwick but his tenure was short: he died of tuberculosis in 1868. He was buried in an unmarked grave in the burial ground of the Auld Kirk in Prestwick. The Prestwick club added a memorial plaque to him near the entrance to the cemetery in 2008.

He and his brothers are further commemorated by the 'Strath' bunker in front of the 11th green on the Old Course at St Andrews.
