These may look like scenes from an upcoming Merchant-Ivory movie, but they are, in a fact, from a tournament in Scotland that limits competitors to clubs made before, or made to replicate those manufactured before, 1935. Named for the traditional hickory-shafted club, the World Hickory Open is in its eighth year and also requires players to dress in the styles of an earlier era. It all looks very authentic--except for the high-fives, of course.
