PGA Champions

This past weekend I photographed the PGA American Family Insurance Championship at University Ridge Golf Course in Madison, Wisconsin.

Shooting golf entails carrying heavy camera equipment across a huge golf course for an entire weekend in sweltering heat. Although shooting the tournament was “work,” I considered it more of a weekend off because I was having so much fun and enjoying myself too much to think of it as work. It was a lovely break from my regular internship work where I photograph more newsy things. Here are some of my faves from the weekend. Pics are in no particular order.
