Old Tom Morris Visits the Royal Dublin Golf Club

Thomas Mitchell Morris, known as Old Tom Morris, the legendary Scottish professional and course designer associated with St Andrews, visited the Royal Dublin in 1894 at the age of 73 and played two matches, halving the first but winning the return match the following day.

"Is there need to add," said a report, "that all the members of the Club gave a hearty welcome to the grand old champion, that we look forward to another visit from him soon, and that he departed with good wishes for his success at Sandwich during the Championship Meeting?"
