Hello golf nuts,

I am reporting this week from the Cdn Opn at St Georges country club as a photographer for golfwrx.com

So far i have taken pictures that will be able to be viewed by members of this site and that one as soon as i finish uploading them from my camera.

I guess i can use this thread as a way to blog about my week at the Canadian Open and it has been a very cool day so far.

It was an early start to the day since i left Hamilton at 5am, im in the media centre as i type this filing my report for this site and also for golfwrx.

I can begin to explain how much fun but also how hard it is to keep up with pictures and trying to get the ones that everyone want.

If you have any question about what its like to be behind the ropes at a PGA tour tournament just ask ad i will try and reply asap.

Some great pics TB...love the one with the sun/sprinkler mist(?) down the long fairway.

That rough looks pretty meaty in some of the other ones :)

How the heck is Paul Casey already here and on the course? Wow, gotta respect him, coming in 3rd, getting on a plane and showing up here.

Can't wait to watch him on Friday.

John Deere charters them to the Open Championship and the RBC Canadian Open charters them back..

He was one of the "celebrities" listed to play, so without seeing the picture I will say...Yes.

So Camillos is using a Superfast TP 3 wood. :D

I'm jealous man, I was supposed to be there today as an observer today in Camillo's group with another TGN'er, but sadly could not get the day off. :mad:

I think he graciously offered it to a few of us but given the short notice...reality got in the way

but you know "observer" means STALKER!

A guy from work knows one of the big cheese at RBC. He is caddying for one of the pros at the MW Charity Classic today and sent me a pic.

Seems like a lot of the pics from earlier today are gone. There was a bunch of range shots, and they're not there anymore.

Interesting...Didn't the 909s get their first win at the CDN open in 2008? Hmmm...

More of my pictures have been uploaded onto golfwrx.com.

This morning (thurs ) I have been following a couple groups as well as taking some scenis shots as i drove into Toronto and then when i was on the course.... golf porn at its finest.

I will be attempting to cover the entire course again and hopefully get some interesting candid shot from around the tournamnet and also the range.

Most guys look like your norml low handicap golfers except for the fact that when they hit it good its really good and when they miss it its really not that bad.

Im headed to the range right now to get some good pictures and hopefully maybe snag a couple autographs before the players go into tournament mode and then to be honest I dont want to bug them anyways.

rememeber any questions just ask.
