General Hospital Star Cameron Mathison Checks A Dream Item Off His Bucket List

Cameron Mathison has been embedded in the entertainment industry for most of his career. He first got his start on daytime television when he portrayed Ryan Lavery on the soap "All My Children" from 1998 to 2011, and most recently has taken on the role of Drew Cain on "General Hospital." In addition to acting (he also has over a dozen Hallmark movies under his belt), Mathison is also a talented host and interviewer. He has worked as a correspondent for Good Morning America and Entertainment Tonight, and has also hosted the Daytime Emmys several times as well as the reality show "I Wanna Be a Soap Star."

Outside of his on-screen career, Mathison enjoys spending his time with his wife Vanessa, son Lucas, and daughter Leila, while also finding the time to sit on the board of governors for Love Our Children USA, non-profit charity which aims to end violence against children (via TV Guide). He also enjoys staying busy with athletic hobbies such as basketball, swimming, and skiing. However, it's Mathison's love of golf that takes up most of his free time. He is a member of the Celebrity Players Tour which is a group of golfers that travel around the United States to play at different courses and can sometimes be spotted on the Golf Channel.

Cameron Mathison enjoys an experience of a lifetime

Cameron Mathison recently posed to Instagram on July 20, 2022 to celebrate crossing off an exciting item from his bucket list. The actor had the privilege of playing a round of golf at the esteemed Old Course at St. Andrews in Scotland. The course is revered by professionals in the industry and fans alike, as the location where the sport was first played in the 15th century (via St. Andrews). Mathison included several pictures of the special day, including one with his wife and son standing on the infamous Swilcan Bridge which has been a popular spot for photos for many years.

He captioned the post, in part, "A day I will never ever forget. The Old Course at St Andrews is an almost spiritual place for golfers. It's a course I have dreamed about playing since I was 10 years old and watched Jack Nicklaus win The Open Championship there. To play this iconic course ... was beyond my wildest dreams ... I kept having to pinch myself to make sure I wasn't dreaming." Mathison recently battled and overcame kidney cancer, so we're thrilled that he has regained his health and was able to take this trip and enjoy the incredible opportunity to golf at the Old Course.
