Brown, Michael - Old Tom Morris

An original 1907 print from the painting by Michael Brown.

James Michael Brown (1853-1947) a land and seascape artist whose passion for Golf was transposed to his art. Michael Brown created the artwork for the LIFE ASSOCIATION OF SCOTLAND Calendar.

Old Tom Morris was a true pioneer in the game of golf, winning the Open Championship four times at Prestwick, where all the early championships were played. After his second win in 1862, he was appointed Professional to the Royal & Ancient Golf Club of St Andrews where he was affectionately known as "Keeper of the Greens."

Old Tom Morris was almost invincible in match play; when partnered with his mentor Allan Robertson, he was never beaten. In addition to his own accomplishments, he was father to Tommy Morris, also a four time winner of the Open Championship. Young Tom and Old Tom still remain the youngest and oldest winners of the Open Championship to date.
