For most golfers, the mere thought of playing at renowned locations like St. Andrews, Ballybunion, Turnberry, or Royal County Down remains a distant dream.

From his calamitous encounter with the legendary "Road Hole" at St. Andrews' Old Course to navigating the relentless gale force winds at Muirfield (affectionately dubbed "a spot of bother" by locals), and even resorting to an entire bottle of Jameson 18-year-old whiskey to cure his persistent shanks after a round at Lahinch (which surprisingly worked), Peter's escapades are nothing short of captivating.
