U.S. Women’s Open

A good friend of mine invited me to attend today’s practice round of the 2009 Women’s Open at Saucon Valley Country Club in Bethlehem, PA. It was a wonderful opportunity that I just couldn’t pass up. We even had access to his company’s air conditioned tent, which provided cool relief throughout the day as well as refreshments.

The players were all very friendly and more than willing to sign autographs. Of course, I took my camera and took lots of photos. It was so fun to meet the women golfers and watch them practice for the upcoming tournament.

The two things I noticed were 1) the distance and accuracy of their drives and second shots. This was nothing short of impressive. Long, accurate drives were the order of the day. 2) the consistency of their swings. Consistency is a hard thing to accomplish in any sport and almost any endeavor. Are you consistent, for example, with your photography? These women golfers are extremely consistent, which I guess is why they are on the pro tour, but witnessing this consistency was incredible. And I am going to try now to be more consistent with my photography!
