Tom Clark Gnome - Andrew

Andrew is named for the Royal and Ancient Golf Club of St. Andrews, Scotland, one of the oldest and most famous of all golf courses. The exact origin of golf is obscure, but it is known that Mary Queen of Scots played at St. Andrews in the 1500's. Like his friend Ian, Andrew is wearing a kilt of the Cairn tartan in which gold bands frame the St. Andrews crosses. His green hunting jacket has acorn buttons, and the sporran at his waist holds his money. His regimental striped tie is cut "face up" in the British fashion, so that the stripes slant from the heart. The flashes on Andrew's socks complete his traditional Scottish attire. Andrew's 5 pence coin from Great Britain shows the thistle, the national emblem of Scotland. The Order of the Thistle, a Scottish order of knighthood, is sometimes called the Order of St. Andrew. Andrew is too small to be knighted, but he's performing a noble deed by yelling "Fore" to help some golfer find his ball.
