How dangerous are those drone blades? If someone loses control or if there's interference with the remote, how much damage can they do to a person?

Great pics Rick.  Practice rounds are a blast.  Didn't make it out for a practice round this year, but I'll head over to watch tomorrow, and probably again on Saturday.

 

Always a great event.

It was very close to Pat Perez's head on the practice green - it really can get some good angle shots, but it is noisy as hell by golf standards. It sounds like a swarm of bumble bees. I have a youtube that I'll post later (I'm headed out for a round of golf this a.m. a1_smile.gif).

Wow I have never seen that hover camera before.  Are they going to be using that during the actual coverage?  Can probably get come really cool shots.  I'm guessing it will only be used between shots though, no way a player would stand for that thing buzzing overhead mid-swing!

That is cool. I'm into retro myself.

Rick, I gave you a thumbs up for the great photography. 

 

I went into work late today and was watching morning drive. They commented on the hovercam and that they are using it at the tournament. Maybe we can get some unique angles from it. Hopefully the drone people don't object, but I didn't see any weaponry. I was thinking that if it could shoot an electrical charge they could use it to jolt the slow play offenders and video their reaction.

When Rand Paul inquired a few weeks ago, Eric Holder made it clear that they couldn't target American citizens on American soil with drone attacks.  He did NOT say anything (as I recall) about targeting non citizens who are posing a threat to Tiger Woods winning another Bay Hill championship.  (That would almost qualify as terrorism, no?)

 

Graeme McDowell and Ian Poulter better stay on their toes if they're playing well come Sunday!

In the case of protecting Tiger Woods, I would suggest arming it with Mini Nike Hercules missiles. I think they make a very discernible "Swoosh" sound.

I was thinking out of respect for one of the all time greats, the guy who made golf popular back in the day? I mean how many more years do you think the guy's gonna be around?

Anyone catch Rich Lerner's piece on Arnie? Kind of sad to watch Arnold aging. He did do a  very good job in today's press conference. Still mentally sharp.

Spoke w/ a long time attendee at the Arnold Palmer practice round and the consensus is that after Arnie passes, this tournament will probably pass away as well or at least the venue will change.
