Your Favorite Golf Snapshot, Picture or Photo Thread

I am starting to realize that I will probably not play golf with my dad ever again. (I hope I'm wrong.) I only played with him one time (9 holes) in the last 2 years. He and I have played I don't know how many rounds together. Realizing that we aren't likely to play together again makes me really appreciate the memories I have of him on the golf course. Additionally, I really cherish the pictures of I have of him and I playing together. Especially, the ones of he and I playing in period clothing during a "Hickory Tournament". 

Therefore, I thought I'd create a thread in which everyone can post their Favorite (or favorites) Golf Picture, snapshot or Photo. Just post the picture and tell us about it. Where was it taken, When, What do you like about it, etc... 

I'll start with this one:

IMG_0486.thumb.JPG.f2e63ef815bf5556034ef03e0addefc0.JPG

I love this photo. It is me and my dad the last time we played a Hickory Tournament. It was back in 2013. 

It wasn't the last time we played together, but it was the last Hickory Tournament we played together. As you can tell, we wore period clothing. 

My dad loves golf and loves to play all of the what I call "weirdo" tournaments. He loves the Chili Open (Golf in the middle of winter usually in the snow), He loves Hickory tournaments (Okay admittedly not really weirdo), He loves Tournaments that tee off at midnight with glow-in-the-dark golf balls. To be truthful, he's a pretty terrible golfer. Has very very rarely broken 100, even after playing the game for 50 years. But he always has a great attitude. He enjoys the game. And he usually springs for lunch. He also doesn't believe in the 14 club rule. His bag has like 20 clubs in it and weights a metric ton. Looking back, I wish I would have taken up the game when I was younger. I could have had some memories of he and I playing when I was a kid. Instead, they are all of he and I with me as an adult. They are great memories. 

So, that's my favorite golf picture. What's yours?

Gosh, my "favorite" golf picture? I have too many, including the time I snuck up into the tower at the U.S. Open at Oakmont to get a photo of the Church Pew bunkers.

One of my favorites is the background of my phone, though, and similar photos can no longer be taken:

You can have more than one favorite. If somebody said who's my favorite kid, I'd definitely pick 2 of them. 

You can also post more than one.

I posted this during the USO, you can tell who it is just by the silhouette.

 

That's an awesome picture!

Eyes towards the hopeful rays of the sun throughout a difficult day at Whistling where we had multiple rain delays.  Kind of perfectly describes the beautiful struggle of the game to me.

This photo speaks of my obstinate persistence.   We'd gone over a week with snow covering every course... cabin fever was setting in.  Finally, North Bellingham opened their back nine with about 10% snow coverage (though it doesn't look like it from this photo).  Local rule was a free drop from any snowbank, no closer to the hole.

This particular hole, #16, a par 3, has a deep ravine in front of the green.   What you see are snowdrifts from the winds that can howl across the course.  So glad they carved a path through this winter wonderland.

My week spent at The Greenbrier a few years ago is still by far my most enjoyable golf trip. Difficult to choose just one picture from the many that I took that week, but this one stands out in my eye.

We were on the Monterrey Peninsula about 12 years ago.  On the day we were scheduled to play Spyglass Hill the remnants of Super Typhoon Melor rolled in.  The power was winking on and off at the Inn at Spanish Bay, where we were staying.  Most of the guys decided to play cards.  Five of us said WTF and took the shuttle to Spyglass.  Sustained winds were 65 mph with much larger gusts.  Rain was coming down sideways.  The power was off at the clubhouse for Spyglass but they were "technically open."  We were advised to stay on the "Ocean 6" because limbs and trees were falling.

On the 6th tee, I told the group to gather around for a photo.  I set the timer on my digital camera and hoped some sort of photo would be created.  The camera shorted out when I went to view whether we had a photo or not. It was not until I was home in Ann Arbor that the camera dried out and would turn on.  Perfecto!  Everyone got an 8 x 12 framed copy for Christmas.

To this day, the wettest I have ever been on a golf course.

Did you stick to the ocean 6?  Good pic... a lot of wet rain gear there.  Reminds me of my Pacific Dunes experience...

The two of us on the right (I am the short guy) called it a day after 6.  The other three knuckleheads played the "Ocean 6" a second time and then played 6 more on the inland portion.

The gentleman in the middle has an annual golf outing in FL where one plays 36 holes a day for 6 days.  He had to be dragged off the course.

7 golfers ventured onto the course that day.  Only one finished.  I'll let you guess.  Conditions not as bad as you had, but 45 mph winds, rain sideways as well... and my caddie wanted to quit after 16.  I made the mistake of wearing corduroys that day.  They weighed about 40 pounds when I completed the round.  Power went out that night at the inn... generator kicked on to allow for dinner at McKee's Pub.

    • Day 51 - Worked on some hip turn in the mirror. Need to film for Evolvr tomorrow, see how my setup looks. 
    • Made it through 16 holes today at +11 (73). Had 14 GIR/nGIR. I was about 30 yards from the green on a par-5 when I had to quit due to darkness. Just extrapolating my scoring, if I par #17 (considering I was close to GIR already), and bogey #18, that would be an 83, which is an excellent score for me on this course, from the tees I was playing. My ball striking was good all round, and I only had one horrendous mishit (topped a 3W off the tee on #2, ended up making a 6). The wind was strong and gusty so the ball was doing some weird stuff. On the first hole I flushed my drive, and it only got out 228 yards, then proceeded to hit my hybrid 260 yards just short of the green.  
    • Day 317 Played 16 holes today. Started pretty late in the afternoon, and was almost home on the par-5 17th hole when it was finally too dark to continue so I picked up and headed home. One of the best rounds in recent memory, and there was some pretty wild wind to contend with. Too tired for a superspeed workout so that will wait until tomorrow.
    • The only people that are allowed to whine about 3 putt pars are tour pros😉. Just kidding. Glad you got out for a round, and keep that driver in play and going LONG!!!
    • Day 126.  Speed sticks, protocol one at halftime of SNF.  It has been eleven days since I did this last;  that's way too long.
