A stroke of inspiration

MEMBERS of the golf club that first created the rules of the game in 1774 donned Victorian garb to launch a new exhibition.

Members of Leith Rules Golf Society wore plus-fours and cloth caps while holding clubs that would be out of place in the modern game as they admired a portrait of King Edward.

The Art of Golf at the Scottish National Gallery on The Mound in Edinburgh tells the story of the evolution of the national sport through works of art, rare memorabilia and museum pieces. It runs until October 26.
