My name is Moly McMillan and I am from Dundee in Scotland. Moly, pronounced “Molly” is actually a nickname, my real name is Malcolm, although “Moly” is not uncommon for Dundonian Malcolms! I am semi-retired and live with my wife Fran in Broughty Ferry, which is a small seaside town close to both St Andrews and Carnoustie – one might say in the middle of golfing heaven.
I am a keen, but not particularly good, golfer, with a current handicap of 17 (from Monifieth GC, Aug 2017), although my sons refuse to play me for money on that handicap, continually citing my lowest handicap of 11 (some 20 years ago)! My long held ambition was to be a single figure handicap player, however I am resigned to the reality this will probably never happen.
My ambition to play every single golf hole in Scotland came about when writing a short book about my life when asked to do so by one of my sons, using a template called From Me to You. When asked about my retirement ambitions, I said “I’d climb all the Munro’s”; “Everyone does that these days Dad!” came the reply. OK, I said, I’ll play every single golf hole! There’s now a £10 bet riding on my success.
“Playing the lot!”
