Über diesen Titel


Thomas Hodge, a young Cornishman down on his luck, but bursting with energy and talent, arrived at St Andrews in the 1850s to open a boarding school mainly for the children of Scottish adventurers far away working and fighting for the East India Company. His outstanding all-round athleticism and eagle eyesight made him a natural sportsman. Before long he was elected a member of the Royal and Ancient Golf Club and became a frequent medal winner. But, it was Hodge's compulsion and delight to take with him at all times his pencil, brushes and watercolours to picture his friends, who happened to be the giants of the game, in their golfing heaven. Over a period of forty years, Hodge drew and painted thousands of tiny portraits and miniature landscapes. He was known by all as "The Golf Artist of St Andrews". Old golfers admired his work and the gifts he made to them of it, because Hodge knew golf and its people intimately. When Hodge left St Andrews in 1893, his illustrations had adorned several of the treasured books of the game, include the Badmington Golf, but soon he was forgotten. It was only in 1893 that the discovery of a large quantity of his work in London, followed by the gift of another large portion of his 'missing' pictures to the Royal and Ancient by his granddaughter, Miss Norah Sheward, that the true importance of Thomas Hodge to the history of the game begun to unfold.
