A new documentary following the ups and downs of golf caddies is to premier at Edinburgh International Film Festival this weekend.

Narrated by comedian Bill Murray, a former caddie turned actor Loopers: The Caddie's Long Walk (PG) marries history and biography as it tracks the origins and evolution of a centuries-old trade through profiles of notable characters who have walked the courses carrying bags of some of the finest players in the world.

As it bops around the globe, dropping in on iconic clubs and diving into their caddie cultures, the film stops to interview a host of famous players, and the men and women who hauled their bags.

And there are sit-down interviews with Tom Watson, Curtis Strange and Lee Trevino, among others.

Loopers hosts its international premier on Friday, June 21 for tickets and for the full festival line up visit EIFF.
