10:21 AM ET 07.11 | For most of his 29-year career, Mark Calcavecchia, a longtime Palm Beach Gardens resident, has changed caddies like players switch golf gloves. But he's never found one as reliable as his wife, Brenda, who'll be by his side Thursday at St. Andrews when Mark will make his 24th consecutive start in the Open Championship. A week later, the couple will tackle Carnoustie and the Senior British Open.

That's one way to keep your wife from nagging about how much golf you play.

But will she give him the silent treatment if he does not take her club selection suggestion?

And vice versa if she doesn't stroke his putter and kiss his balls for luck?

It all comes down to how well she polishes the fairway wood.

The Golf T&R was going good for a week or so with new articles but it looks like the intern has returned to Summer camp.

Forget about getting in the R&A Clubhouse and kissing the Captains Balls though - back in 1981, I sent the wife in there when she needed a toilet - for kind of a giggle, telling her there'd be a facility somewhere not far inside the door - she wandered all about the place, and finally found a cubicle, but then got sprung on the way out - I've got a picture somewhere I think, of ma wee sweetie being pointed down the alley by a disgruntled steward. She thought it was just great - she got invited to Buckingham Palace in 1994 - but counts the R&A, a notch or two, above that. I'm pretty certain they've relaxed the no women allowed rule since then, but I kinda doubt that the no caddies has been.
The other things about St Andrews that she loved - "They have great paths that I can play down to get to the fairway (she played her very first 18 hole round of golf at the Old Course) - and, the starter telling us that you and the lad can go off right after this foursome of Germans, so that'll be one full, and one junior, 9 pounds even,please ( being early in May, she had a toque pulled down around her ears, and was playing with a starter set, in a canvas carry-bag) - she drove it off, about 150 yards or so, and got a smattering of applause from around the first tee.

Wow great info Tom ! Only 9 pounds for the round ? My Dad and Uncle tried to get a tee time at St Andrews a few years back well in advance of a trip to the land of single malts.The waiting list was huge and they could not get on for any price.
