Golfing Vacation Leads to Scottish Caddies DVD

The credits of LA based Artists Confederacy founder Ronald Colby are impressive, to say the least. They start at the Francis Ford Coppola end with The Godfather Part II and move on to other equally illustrious film folk such as Clint Eastwood and John Hughes.

But for golfing fans, there may be no more memorable a Colby credit than Scottish Caddies, his newest non-fiction effort. Filmed during a four-week 2009 overseas links vacation, the documentary catches up with some famous bag handlers as well as celebrity golfer tales involving the likes of Bill Clinton, Sean Connery and Jack Lemmon.

The original 2009 trip, taken with Artists Confederacy partner Patricia van Ryker, also returned Colby to his younger days growing up on Long Island, where he caddied at the Fresh Meadows Country Club. In the above clip, some caddies explain how cheating on the golf course extends all the way up to members of the clergy and Supreme Court. Fore shame!
