19th Hole

Inside the Dunvegan: St. Andrews bar owner tells amazing stories about Rory McIlroy, Tiger Woods and Arnold Palmer

Published

Welcome to The Dunvegan Hotel in St. Andrews, arguably the most famous golf pub and 19th hole in the world. Just 112 yards from the 18th green at The Old Course at St. Andrews, the Dunvegan has been the unofficial bar/restaurant of St. Andrews for decades.

Recently, during the 150th Open Championship, GolfWRX stopped in to say hello, taste a pint of Dunvegan beer, eat fish and chips (I actually ate the Steak Pie, which was delicious), and get a full tour of the historical drinking spot.

While we were there, longtime owners Sheena and Jack Willoughby were gracious enough to sit down with me and tell stories about the bar’s history, some of its famous patrons (like Tiger Woods, Rory McIlroy, Arnold Palmer and many others), and tell some untold stories from inside the Dunvegan.

If you’ve ever been to the Dunvegan, then you know the walls are covered in photographs and memorabilia that tell stories about the bar’s history. If you’ve never been there, then hopefully the video helps you live vicariously, as Sheena and Jack took the time to make some of the stories come to life in our recent tour and sit down.

My personal favorite story, as highlighted in our recent TikTok video below, Rory McIlroy used to come into the Dunvegan in his younger days, where he unsuccessfully tried to go “incognito,” despite his trademark bushy black curls.

@golfwrx Sheena Willoughby from The Dunvegan Hotel in St Andrews (golf’s most famous pub) tells a great story of when Rory McIlroy used to come into the bar back in the day with his bushy black curls and act incognito ? ? WAY more stories about Tiger, John Daly and Arnold Palmer on our GolfWRX YouTube page #cheers #rory #theopen #dunvegan #beers #golf #golftiktok #rorymcilroy #standrews ? original sound – golfwrx

Clement: 1,000% weight shift in your next swing when this is your focus!

It is amazing how golf instruction is still trying to teach how to shift weight and clear hips when our human machines are already wired and built to perform those tasks in spectacular fashion!

Clement: Should you grip down on your driver or not?

Published

Man, this is when you really appreciate the power of the launch monitor. Last year we noticed my club speed was the same between driver and 3-wood, and now we grip down on them and get more consistency with less effort and same distance!
