The artist, Loyal H. "Bud" Chapman is a native of Minnesota, was born 1923.
He began painting at an early age and played his first round of golf as a caddie at the age of 12 at Interlachen Country Club, the site where Bobby Jones finalized his grand slam. As a boy he caddied for legendary golfer Patty Berg.
During World War II he flew B-29's, and following the war he attended Walker Art School in Minneapolis, and later opened his own art studio, starting a career as a commercial artist.
The first effort rendering whimsical interpretation of demanding golf courses was entitledVictoria Falls Golf Club. Seventeen more golf holes followed over the next 10 years that became the 18 Infamous Golf Holes Collection.
