In my continuing my coverage of the Waste Management Phoenix Open, I spent pretty much the entire day at the tournament yesterday. I spent the morning in the media center, creating a few posts for the blog and planning who I would follow in the afternoon. Just after noon I headed to the course, where I was able to follow a few of the Nike Athletes and snap a few pics (Friday I had a photo pass). I found Stewart Cink at the range warming up, and caught him again starting his round on the 10th hole.
I then caught up with Carl Pettersson at the second green, and followed him to the third tee to get some shots of him teeing off. I also was able to get a few more pics of his bag there. Then I caught up with Jamie Lovemark on the adjacent 9th hole (his last if the day), and watched him finish his round there. A few other Nike athletes were on the course that I didn’t get pics of including Anthony Kim and Scott Brown (who played in the same group, I caught up with them as they were walking from the 9th green to the clubhouse), Kevin Chappell (who I also saw walking from 9th green to clubhouse), and Kevin Kisner (who I just missed finishing his round on 18).
All in all it was a fun several days at the WM Phoenix Open. I’m not sure if I’ll make it back out to the tournament this weekend, but if I do I’ll post about it right here on NGN. But I’ll definitely be back next year to follow the Nike Athletes at the Greatest Show on Grass!
