About bradan

I chose the word bradan for several reasons. It is the Irish Gaelic word for the salmon, which was believed to gain wisdom from eating hazelnuts that fell into the stream from overhanging branches. The word also meant a broad hillside in Old English.

The game of golf was born in Scotland, a land of rolling hills and salmon, and a little wisdom is no bad thing when you are playing the challenging courses there.
