After a number of years, I was able to finally make it to the Deutsche Bank Pro-Am (played at the TPC Boston course in Norton, Mass). A 'great' overcast day, w/ spots of drizzle...Dusted off the glass (haven't picked up the gear all summer) and met up with Geoff Bolte. Geoff was credentialed while I wasn't and had to stay behind the ropes.

1. The Tiger feeling good (he had injured his back at the Barclays and had withdrawn from a charity event a few days prior so his appearance wasn't guaranteed)

Wow Chris - you hang out with a pretty select group! Nice series of shots.
Ha, thanks Fred...

These are crazy good Chris, impressive stuff.

Graham
Cheers Graham...


Hey Chris,

I know nothing about golf… so my comment is about the posted portraits.

#1 and #8 are really the best in there! …very cool!

Have a good time!
Thanks very much Kodiak...

Very cool.

No.7 - if that's a tee off, what's all the stuff flying in the foreground?
Thanks Graham, this was a par 3; very often they won't use a tee and just place the ball directly on the ground, using an iron.

Guess I'll have to post some shots from my week... Haven't even gone through a good bit of them!
Yes, want to see your close-ups of Tiger

Hey Chris, nice shots! I like the coverage you had, and even showing how Geoff can boss around Tiger Woods too! :biggrin:
hey thanks Steve...yup, noone argues w/ Geoff :smile:

Great work Chris. Excellent opportunity and you sure didn't waste it!
Thanks Gordon..

Thanks Mike, sure did, and am very glad, that's a lot of hoofing around, my Jawbone UP reported I walked almost 10 miles, for 1/2 a day. And Geoff was able to get us a ride from the back nine over to the front too...
