We are blessed with our good weather today and  President Barack Obama who arrived at Edinburgh Airport this morning has enjoyed perfect conditions at The Old Course St Andrews for his first round of golf in Scotland.

Our good friend Doug Clement who is a caddie at Kingsbarns Golf Links as well as being a Fife Ambassador and whisky entrepreneur sent us these photos and video.

Doug was out at Kingsbarns caddying earlier then hotfooted it across to The Old Course where he is also a member.

President Obama will be in Edinburgh later to speak at the charity dinner arranged by The Hunter Foundation at the EICC.

Tables have sold for around £5,000 and the event is a complete sell-out.
