2009 AT&T Pro Am - Pt. 3

Yesterday I got to shoot most of the morning at Poppy Hills. It was a nice course to shoot golf, because it was very confined as it's cut through the pine trees.

I shot a few of the celebs, but mostly wanted some nice action shots of pro Phil Mickelson, who has won the Pro Am a few times.

I pulled out a few nice shots. One of my favorite holes to shoot now is the 10th at Poppy. It has this cool lake around the green, which makes for a nice background.

Just wish I had a 300 f/2.8 or a 200-400 f/4...
