With a few weeks off from the rigors of shooting General Hospital, many of its stars took off for some rest and relaxation. For Cameron Mathison, who plays Drew Cain, it was the opportunity of a lifetime that allowed him to check off a major bucket list item.
Cameron Mathison Has The Experience of a Lifetime
The actor posted about 10 slides (some images and some videos) from his trip to his official Instagram account, and he let everyone know how much it meant to him to spend time at a prestigious golf course.
“A day I will never ever forget,” he began the caption, letting his followers know they were about to learn something incredible. “The Old Course at St Andrews is an almost spiritual place for golfers. It’s a course I have dreamed about playing since I was 10 years old and watched Jack Nicklaus win The Open Championship there.
“To play this iconic course, the first day it was open to the public following the 150th Open Championship, was beyond my wildest dreams,” he continued. “The course was set up exactly as the pros played it on Sunday, and I kept having to pinch myself to make sure I wasn’t dreaming.
“In the photos, you see my tee shot on the famous 18th hole (I two-putted from the valley of sin for par), my eagle putt on #5 that burned the edge (made birdie), me and Bobby on the first tee (the incredibly kind St Andrews resident who got us the tee time despite thousands of people trying), and most importantly, Lucas and Vanessa (Leila couldn’t make the trip) joining me on the iconic Swilcan Bridge (where all the greats have stopped to take their photo).”
You can see the amazing images below. Cameron Mathison wasn’t just excited by the experience — he was incredibly grateful. “Huge thanks to [Mark Scoon] for introducing me to Bobby and making this dream a reality.”
