I know, I know – sorry I’ve been M.I.A. for a couple weeks. But I’m back and I’ve sorted through the 800 (!) pictures my husband took during his week volunteering at the US Open at Merion Golf Club. He came home with a nice tan, sleep deprived and as happy as a pig in you know what. I’m so glad he was fortunate enough to have this experience. Without further ado, here are some of the highlights!
Welcome to the US Open!
Practice at the driving range.
Tiger sporting a rare smile.
Tiger and Arnold Palmer having a chat… No big deal!
Rory McIlroy texting someone at the cocktail reception on the first night. I wonder if it’s Caroline Wozniacki.
Rory and Tiger probably laughing about how much money they got from Nike on their most recent endorsement deals.
One of the fairways during a rare sunny day.
Tiger’s extremely stylish swing coach.
Gotta love the Tiger club cover!
Sharing a laugh.
Grounds crew preparing the green.
The players walk down these steps as they wind through the remnants of an old limestone quarry.
The famous red wicker tee baskets on the East Course.
My husband sat on the 18th hole all day on the last day of the tournament. Here is a beautiful panoramic view with the sun just beginning to set. A spectacular ending to an unforgettable week.
