He and Robertson quarrelled over the introduction of the guttie ball and Tom Morris moved to Prestwick in 1851. He was brought back to St Andrews as greenkeeper by the R&A in 1865 and was later made professional, a title he kept throughout his life. He opened his shop in St Andrews in 1867 and Tom Morris fast became known as one of the most famous Hickory Golf Clubmakers in the world.
