Congratulations are in order to “Your Golf Travel” for winning the first annual “Make Augusta National Golf Club Look Bad” contest! Check out this beauty of a photo:
Let’s analyze the genius of this photo. How many different ways could they make the world’s most beautiful golf course look so terrible?
- Photograph at a 29.7 degree tilt to the left, to make the view nauseated and dizzy
- Make greens look dried and burned out
- Make fairway look dried and burned out
- Overexpose photo so skies look like a nuclear white-out
- Position photo so 50% of the content is the overexposed nuclear white-out
- Shoot photo at such a low resolution that the trees in the background completely pixelate into digital gibberish
There you have it. Congratulations to Your Golf Travel! Email me to collect your prize, a free PDF on the basics of digital photography.
This time of year is great, except for all the articles written by media who know nothing about golf and cover it maybe a max of four times per year. I’ve heard people call major tournaments “Masters,” as in “there are four Masters each year…” Then there are the boneheaded “The Masters have begun” statements, like below.
The Masters is a golf tournament. It is singular. The Masters Tournament is one of four “Major Championships” per year in golf. One should say, “the Masters has begun.”
Golf giveaway fail…
This is a sign on the 3rd hole of one of my home courses. I always get a kick out of this sign. There are some new and very expensive houses to the left of this par-3 now. The sign is obviously there to warn golfers that they’re liable for damage due to errant shots.
So my question is this: If a golfer intentionally hits at one of these houses and executes the shot perfectly, is he still liable? After all, the sign says golfers are responsible for errant shots. If the shot is not errant he’s off the hook, right?
Time to resurrect the HOG bonehead of the week award. This one goes to whoever made the name labels for the caddie bibs at the Cadillac Championship.
Who is this McLLroy guy? Never heard of him.
