a round of golf with zach byrd

August 1, 2011

A couple of days ago, I was sent to the Green Valley Ranch Golf Club – where the Colorado Open were about to be held – to photograph professional golfer Zach Byrd. The Denver Post was planning to run a feature on the guy, and he was playing a pro-am shotgun, a tournament in which professionals and amateurs play together on a team. I had shot golf before when I interned with the Valley News, but I never really got a shot out of it that I liked. This time, I actually managed to get a few good ones. My favorite is the first one, where Byrd has just missed a put…
