Three things that belong together: Scotland, Johnnie Walker and golf. The trio came to life in a series of events architected by MKTG INC and Johnnie Walker to celebrate the return of the biennial Ryder Cup to golf’s spiritual home at Gleneagles Hotel in Perthshire.

There were two tares (that’s Scottish for parties) with EventScotland and another pair of events with Ryder Cup Europe. Both featured signature cocktails and under-kilt banter.

Meanwhile the 2012 Ryder Cup just wrapped last weekend in Illinois (America 13 1/2 points, Europe 14 1/2 points). The three-day tournament closed with a classic-malt tasting hosted by a Johnnie Walker master of whisky. Auld Lang Syne, friends.

One can only imagine what these Street View drivers see as they capture the world on film, one block at a time… but hey, why is it so weird to see a Superhero Pub Crawl in a town on a remote island off the coast of Scotland?  Added bonus for anyone who can identify all the superheroes shown in the picture.
