Dozens of golfers from around the globe have arrived in Dundee to take part in World Left Handed Golf Championships.
240 players will take part in the event at courses in the area including Monifieth, Panmure, Montrose and Scotscraig.
Professionals including Phil Mickelson and Bubba Watson are among the few who play left handed.
Their amateur counterparts hold a worldwide competition every 18 months.
The championships have been held in a variety of countries including Australia, USA, New Zealand, Taiwan, Japan, Germany, Sweden and Spain.
It is estimated that the event, which started in Dundee on Monday and finishes on Friday, will give Scotland a £300,000 economic boost.
Event organiser Stuart French said: "It’s very prestigious for the World Left handed Golfers Association because they're bringing 19 countries to the event and the economic impact to the area is significant with the use of hotels, golf courses, restaurants, bus companies, taxi firms and extra tours we're doing around the countryside."
