wyndham championship

we just got thru a very busy week covering the wyndham championship golf tournament in greensboro, nc at sedgefield country club. from photographing the players including john daly, vijay singh, and davis love III to the sponsors gala at grandover resort, it was a very exciting and fun week. in addition anthony was one of the lucky few who was invited to go up in the metlife blimp to capture aerial shots of the golf tournament. his photos are incredible!

i may not be much of a golfer, however i've always enjoyed the sport and often i will join anthony and his friends on the golf course to help keep score and 'caddy'. years ago as a teenager i spent summers working at a pro shop up in virginia along with my mother (who was my 'boss'!) at the golden eagle golf course at the tides inn resort. it brings back many fond memories especially of my mother. so the sport itself has a lot of meaning to me and its something i can appreciate.

yesterdays winner, carl pettersson is a former greensboro resident and a grimsley high school graduate. he's also an alumni from nc state and currently lives in raleigh with his family. he was certainly a crowd favorite with a huge gallery of fans. my shot on the wyndham championship's website of pettersson as he is presented the check. it was truly a wonderful experience and i look forward to the 2009 tournament!
