2016 Swinging Skirts-Part 1


I got to go to the 2016 Swinging Skirts LPGA Classic Pro-Am at Lake Merced Golf Course in San Francisco last week. I always go to the Pro-Am as it is the only day that you can bring in cameras and the players are really nice. Breaking this up into two parts. The first is the action shots:

Chella Choi out of bunker
Lexi Thompson after a putt
Christie Kerr putting
Christina Kim with a chip shot
Brooke Henderson teeing off
Na Yeon Choi
Jessica Korda
Paula Creamer
Ai Miyazato
Jodi Ewart Shadoff
So Yeon Ryu
And these last four-I just sat on the first hole and admired their shots:


Lydia Ko
Morgan Pressel
Stacey Lewis
Michelle Wie
The people who run Swinging Skirts do a great job in hosting the tournament. Heading out to the Pro-Am is always one of my favorite sports activities.

  1. Nice captures. There's a golf course near us. I've thought about taking my camera out there but never quite got around to it. Will have to follow through!

  8. I've never been a golf person. Never realized there were so many female golfers. Its always guys when I happen across it on TV.

  10. Great shots Patrick. I've never been to a tournament, but would love to see one someday! Golfing is a difficult sport to me...I was never very good at it.

  11. I agree. You quite the photographer my friend. Thanks for sharing and have a great day. Not really a golf fan, but I remember my last boss and wife they ate, slept and breathed golf. Must be nice to have a sport like that you love so much.

  12. Great action shots! My dad would love this - he's a HUGE golf fan. And he watches it all - men, women, the young golfers of Canada... if golf is on TV, he is watching it. LOL
    Sadly he cannot play anymore, and he gave me his old clubs. I am actually really looking forward to using them this summer. I can't swing worth anything right now, but I am sure he will be there to give me tips.
