  • 2009 PGA Championship

    Here's a few shots taken on the final practice before the 1st round. If you are looking for Tiger shots you can stop now. He decided to skip the last practice (proved to be a bad idea).

    However, I was able to capture a few of his other PGA friends.

    The first John Daly shot has a really nice sense of motion, and also good composition. All that dirt mid-air is neat. Good job overall, as well...

        #1. These are some nice images. Nice color, nice action from club hitting sand.
        #2. I think John Daly looks like a fool. He could at least not smoke during the play time. Wait til he gets to the lockeroom or something. Looks bad and tacky, but then again, he is a hot mess.
        #3. You may want to clean your sensor, the first image shows sensor spots on the white board.

          The club/ball action shots were the ones that stood out for me. Excellent timing.
          Without others thinking you are good, it doesn't matter how good you think you are.

              Something that says "I'm an immature man-child who needs extra attention and isn't satisfied with people just paying attention to me through my skill at golfing."

                I think it's awesome. I read into Daly as he's out there loving what he's doing and having a blast while doing it. A goofball who has skills and golf is his job but remembers to have fun along the way. Most pro athletes don't remember that it's a game, it's just like watching kids play baseball as opposed to pros. The kids go out there and leave it all out on the field just having fun, not a lot of pros have that mentality.

                  Daly USED to be like all those other guys. IIRC he went through a bout of depression and had a big drinking problem as a result just after his career took off. He went the University of Arkansas when I was there. The pressure to conform and perform was a bit much. I think now, as Marshall said, he's learned to make the game more about him and less about the country club. The "bad boy" thing worked for Agassi in tennis. Why not Daly in golf?

                        True true! I meant if the shtick worked for someone in tennis then maybe it's time for someone to break golf out of its stuffy closet. I like those pants!

                        Though I'd much rather see that rebel be Anna Rawson... mmmm bad girl golf...... Okay, I'll stop now.
