The Champ knew what to expect, and I guess the Champ did not want to have to teach an etiquette class on photography while trying to play at the PDGA Worlds focused.

What I mean by a little aggressive is not by being closer to the players. I was using a 300mm lens and was about halfway down the hole. The aggressive description was referring to my lens & head poking out from behind a large tree and if you threw an anny shot it could go over my head. But as soon as the disc leaves the players hand and I get a few frames I duck behind the tree in case the disc comes at me.

I very well may have been in the wrong. But there is a simple remedy for me being in the way.


At the players meeting the head PDGA guy made a specific announcement that night partly because I brought the issue up about getting in the players way. THere are about 12 photographers covering the events this week and one is deaf. He specifically announced that if any photographer is in their way to motion for the photographer to move.

And several players did just that so far this week. I'm going for the best spot I can.

If you step on the tee pad and throw when you were warned before hand by a member of your group and shank a bad shot then that's on the player.

All he had to was motion at me and I drop back in to the woods. I would have just waited for him to throw or maybe skipped all the players for later.

I have been told by more than a few that Kenny is sometimes a complainer.

not a great idea. I know Kevin will not be able to run after the guy if he decides to bolt with all that expensive equipment.

I like the snippet on the e-mail next to Masters . Wish I could make it down ...

All the times I've done USDGC I've never had any complaints. Sounds like someone's panties were in a bunch. You def. were not in the wrong Kevin.

Today's e-mail from the PDGA director of photography on what we still need...

"Climo does not want photographers taking his picture or in his way... do it anyway."

Got it. Have fun the rest of the week, and look forward to looking at your photos.

I have an interesting pic from the Hornet's Nest Men's room that I think Mr. Von Drehle will think is interesting, but I bet since he lives near here, he already knows to what I refer...

It's on my phone, but I don't know if posting it here will be a violation of the board rules

PDGA scoring tweeted that Climo & Shultz were being distracted by Photographers.

It wasn't me I was at a different course......
