2018 PLAYERS CHAMPIONSHIP

2018 PLAYERS CHAMPIONSHIP

I love assignments that come along with instructions to do something different.

For this year's Players Championship, at TPC Sawgrass, the PGA Tour was looking to cover its flagship tournament with an eye toward documenting the fan experience. Fine by me--not only did it give me the opportunity to approach shooting a golf tournament differently, but it also gave me the opportunity to leave my 20-pound 400mm in the bag for all but about 2 hours of the week. My back says, "Thank you."
