"I took my first trip to The Players Championship in Ponte Vedra, Fla. It was all I had expected: a great field, beautiful course, huge crowds and hot weather. As usual, my assistant, the fabulous Kojo Kinno, and I lugged around our kit of four camera bodies and multiple lenses. We also brought along a fish-eye lens rigged to an aluminum pool-cleaning extension, which allowed me to raise the camera 15 feet. I attached a small video screen to the camera eyepiece so I could see what the camera was seeing and compose the scene accordingly. This is a true bird's-eye view of the eventual winner, Phil Mickelson, teeing off on the first hole."
