In golf, where did the term 'Caddie' come from? (ans. at the end)
When Mary Queen of Scots went to France as a young girl, Louis, King of France, learned that she loved the Scots
game 'golf.' He had the first course outside of Scotland built for her enjoyment. To make sure she was properly
chaperoned (and guarded) while she played, Louis hired cadets from a military school to accompany her.
Mary liked this a lot and when she returned to Scotland (not a very good idea in the long run), she took the practice
with her. In French, the word cadet is pronounced 'ca-day' and the Scots changed it into caddie.
