Over the last 12 months 14 SI photographers have covered
42 tournaments on three different tours. Here are some of
our favorite shots, along with a few thoughts about their

"A few years ago I discovered this angle to
shoot Augusta's 18th tee. The dramatic side
light is low enough to get under a golfer's cap, and
if it's a cloudless afternoon, that light is as clean
as it gets. The last rays on a fading final day at the
highlighted the power and determination
of soon-to-be champ Trevor Immelman."
