Today I went back to Muirfield Village in Dublin, OH and shot the Pro-Am for the Memorial Tournament (the PGA Tour event starts tomorrow).
I went in with a plan and it worked out perfectly. I followed Tiger Woods for a hole, then went back up the first fairway and followed Phil Mickelson from 10-14. Since the 14th green is near the 18th tee, I went over that way and followed Rory McIlroy from the 17th green through 18. I took a lunch break and headed back up 18 to the 15th green and watched several groups come through, until Tiger came through again and I stayed with his group until 18. I had a blast shooting today. It was the first time I’ve really shot any sort of competition round, even though this was a Pro-Am.
I was also really impressed by how the E-M5 handled today. I was able to shoot all day with it on one battery and was really happy with the results. I’ll be writing a companion field report post later this week. There are lots of pictures from today, so I’ve split them into two pages. Take a look and enjoy! All shots are with the Olympus E-M5 and the Canon FD 50-300mm f/4.5L

Jordan my brother played in the pro-am with Tiger today, is there an opportunity to see if you caught him while in play with Tiger. We would love to get copies of your work.
Unfortunately, I pretty much exclusively shot the pros during the round yesterday. The one amateur shot above I took because I met his son and talked with him briefly before taking the shot. In order to best set up my shots, I essentially needed to move to my next photo location immediately after the pro in the group shot.
What an experience that must have been for your brother, though. Tiger’s team played really well, if I’m recalling from the leaderboard, so your brother must be a heck of a golfer. Sorry I didn’t get any shots of him!
Shame on me, in my 26 i don’t know anythink about this 🙁
