Seve Must Have Thought "That's Why Scotland's For Me!"

We're just putting some new touches to our Retro Scotland's For Me toolkit for 2014/15 based on the 1984 Scottish Tourist Board campaign from that period and started looking at what was taking place in 1984 in Scotland.

Well going through the archives Scotland won the old Five Nations Grand Slam and Jock Stein took the footie team to a European Championships and  it looks like Edinburgh were thinking about introducing trams

The single stand out item that placed that year for me was Severiano Ballesteros at the eighteenth on The Old Course punching the air with sheer delight chanting "That's Why Scotland's For Me. That's Why Scotland's For Me" (albeit in Spanish!)

Great memory of a great man thirty years on. Share your love of Scotland #thatswhyscotlandsforme
