Admittedly, I know close to nothing about golf except for that when someone yells “Fore” I need to seriously duck and cover. So, when Taylor Made asked me to be their event photographer for the launch of the new SpeedBlade irons at the BMW Championship at Conway Farms Golf Club, I was totally into it as one of the coolest things about my job is that I rarely know what I am walking in to.
I was expecting something formal as this was a golf equipment event but Taylor Made did this event up more like an i-Phone launch. There were golf writers, APA photographers, video and sound crew as well as PGA Tour superstars Justin Rose, Sergio Garcia, Jason Day and Dustin Johnson. After the Q & A session, they did a head-to-head drive competition with the new irons. And of course, the reps at Taylor Made were super excited to have their photos taken with the US Open Champ Justin Rose.
