"Tiger's ball was in pine needles near a tree on Sunday (on 11). I wanted
to capture the explosion of needles and the club hitting the tree. Thwack!
Needles, dirt and maybe some squirrel teeth flew. Tiger released his 4-iron, glared at me, but I never got his face he recoiled back too quickly. Darn it! The crowd gasped. Tiger picked up his bent club and
snapped it. It was a lucky score. The next day there were messages on
my phone from the office extolling the virtues of the image, and letting
me know it was going to be our Masters cover."
