OOR Wullie is leaving his bucket to tee off at The Open.
The Sunday Post icon has been restyled as Grand Slam Wullie in homage to American golf legend Ben Hogan, who won the event at Carnoustie 65 years ago.
It will be displayed at the course when The Open starts later this month.
The statue, which has been gifted to the Archie Foundation, will be signed by professional golfers before being auctioned.
In 2016, DC Thomson’s Oor Wullie Bucket Trail raised more than £800,000 for the Archie Foundation’s bid to place a specialist unit at Tayside Children’s Hospital at Ninewells in Dundee.
And now the charity hopes this statue could help raise the £2m needed for a new children’s theatre suite.
Meanwhile, the world’s first Oor Wullie themed fish and chip shop opened in Aberdeen last night.
