2012 Photo Recap

Last year lots of guys brought their cameras to Bandon Dunes.  This year it was basically me who acted as the tournament photographer.  A few of my favorite pics:

Our first-ever horse race.

Newcomer Baron Kofeod (shown here on Friday) went 3-1-1 for the Seattle Team.

Veteran Brian Patten went 5-0 for the World Team …

while Norman Cheuk went 4-1 for the now five-time defending champions.

The Seattle Team’s Saturday Callaway salmon shirts — glowing.

The Friday- and Saturday night barbecue deliveries were a big hit among the guys, many of whom were weary of picking up other peoples’ restaurant tabs.

Jenkins went 2-3 with two borrowed drivers and a bent putter …

while teammate Aro had some tough luck on the way to an 0-5 year.

We wound things up on Sunday night at Tumble Creek – just before darkness fell.

2011 Photo Recap

Like last year, several guys brought digital cameras to take pics at the picturesque Bandon courses. A few of my faves:

Perfect attendance through fourteen Greenspans.

A wind-blown Pacific proved to be too much course for Smith -- and the rest of the field.

Waalkes iced his left leg after injuring his right one -- and then made a hole-in-one on both of them the next day.

The green- and bunker complexes at Old Mac provided some interesting challenges to Gran, among others.

So close, but yet so far.

But for one unfortunate putt on Saturday afternoon, O'Brien was one of the World Team's most reliable players.

Down three on Sunday morning, the World team rallied to take nine points -- and the Cup -- in a singles route.

Anderson (shown here with Aro) escaped with a half point in singles after Stonesifer five-putted from twenty feet.

Sharkey, shown here with fellow captain Harrison, improved to 9-1 since the tournament moved to Bandon.

A few too many beers, pics and ice cream cones combined with some very sketchy timing almost caused the Crab Shack Seven -- Anderson, Jenkins and Benezra among them -- to miss their flight home.
