Founding Golfer

I am still reading up on James Wilson, who was one of the Founding Fathers and someone that I’m thinking of writing about.  Anyone, yesterday I was struck by the (quirky) observation that Wilson was probably the only Founder who played golf.  Why do I say this?

1.  Wilson was born in Scotland and lived there until he was 23.

2.  He went to college at St. Andrews, the home of golf.

3.  There is an anecdote about him playing golf as a young man, though that could be apocryphal.

I now return you to regularly scheduled programming.
