Brian and I had a great time being marshals for the PGA championship. We were on the first hole. We rotated around the hole throughout our shifts. Of course the best locations were on the tee box and around the green. We saw many great players, but most notable were Phil Mickelson, Ricky Fowler, Bubba Watson, Dustin Johnson, Hunter Mahan and Tiger Woods. Hunter Mahan's caddie talked to Brian and asked him if he could get some more rakes for the sand trap. Consider it done! After we finished our shift on Friday we followed Ricky Fowler and Dustin Johnson's group from hole 4 to hole 9. Ricky got 3 straight birdies when we started following him. Of course it was because of us. On hole number 9 Dustin Johnson hit the ball to the right of the fairway. Brian and I were some of the first people to stand by his ball. We got to watch him from about 5 feet away line up his shot and hit the ball. When they finished at number 9 we got some lunch and then started following Phil. On hole 2 and 3 Phil hit the ball to the left of the fairway in the trees. We got to see him and Bones (Phil's caddie) up close! Phil is the about the only player who looks up when he walks and communicates with the fans. Here are a few pictures we took during the practice rounds.
