Miguel Angel Jimenez at 2011 US Open

Miguel Angel Jimenez at 2011 US Open-1

Yesterday I had the great pleasure of attending the Tuesday practice round of the U.S. Open Championship being hosted by Congressional Country Club.  The great part of attending a practice round is that cameras are allowed – unlike the tournament rounds beginning on Thursday.  I also enjoy the practice rounds because the crowds are manageable and the line at the beer tents are short!

Over the next few posts, I will be featuring some of my photography from the US Open.  Today, I am focusing on Miguel Angel Jimenez, one of my favorite golfers.

Miguel is at the top of my list of favorites for a number of reasons.  Not only is Miguel a great golfer, but he hits the mark in a number of other categories that make him special.  Miguel has a great sense of humor – listen to any of his interviews and you are sure to get a chuckle.  Miguel smokes cigars which means he is a lot like the rest of us golfers – taking a nice stroll in a beautiful park, enjoying the scenery, and enjoying a nice cigar.

Finally, at age 47 he falls directly into my age group.  I feel compelled to root for the “old guys” on tour and am always pulling for him.

Have fun, and go make some great photography.
