I just finished a hectic week photographing the PGA Tour Championship and FedEx Cup.  This is the culmination of the professional golf season, and Tiger Woods won it with wonderful play.  Huge crowds followed him in person and on TV - more than double normal crowds.  The Sunday broadcast with his win was the highest rated FedEX Cup event ever.

 

Here are a few photos from the 18th hole and the awards ceremony.  I was using a Nikon D850 with a 24-70 f/2.8 and a Nikon D500 with a 70-200 f/2.8 VR II plus the SB-910 flash moving between bodies.  The biggest photographic challenge was they left the trophy stand and risers in front of the people and they really got in the way.  The fast frame rate was great for action - both Tiger coming out of the crowd and him hugging his caddie lasted just 2 seconds or less.

Thanks

 

Most of the time I was just outside the broadcast - which is probably a good thing since it meant my angles were good.  It was a fabulous experience with electricity equal or more to anything I have ever seen at the Masters or other tournaments.  As always the shooting is challenging, but a lot of fun when it works.

Thanks, Dennis.

Nice shots, Eric.

 

It was nice to see Woods make a comeback after so many challenges in his personal/professional life.  :)

Hi Dennis

 

I was shooting for the tournament and the PGA - not for media.  So my photos will be used in promoting the event and for volunteer communications for next year.

 

This photo from last year's event was in the fan guide.  I had another photo that was provided as an autographed promotion for ticket sales.
