...Putt for dough" I believe is how the saying goes. Meaning you can smash a 300 yard drive but if you can't sink a 5 foot putt who cares. A golfer's short game is what separates the Pros from the Joes, but even the big guys make some mistakes.
Here's a few when things didn't go their way...

Day two out at Hawthorn Woods Country Club for the 62nd Illinois Open Chamionship. Enjoy!
You know that feeling when you just want to fall into bed and read a good book? So does Torin Glover, he fell right into a bean bag before curling up to read a book at McCleary Elementary school last week.
Hawthorn Woods Country Club is playing host to the 62nd annual Illinois Open Championship this week. I spent day one covering a few of the local golfers, including past winner, Curtis Malm from Aurora. Here's a few that won't make print for one reason or another. Enjoy!
West Aurora hosted the 13th annual Battle of the Big Butts yesterday, pitting the area's best high school linemen against each other to see who is the best, or could at least not pass out in the heat...
Amoung your standard events was things like the tractor tire flip, bench press competition and 40 yard dash, but what I wasn't expecting was the watermelon eating contest.
I had been debating if I was going to stay long enough to see the event as I already had all the photos I needed to bring back to the newsroom, but thankfully I thought better and stayed to check it out.
Contenders had one minute to devour a quarter watermelon, or as much of it as they could. What ensued was sheer photo gold. Deep blue skies, warm red skin tones and green watermelon rinds... more than enough to satisfy this color hungry photographer.

I spent last night at the Kendall 10 movie theater in Oswego as it was overtaken by hordes of Harry Potter fans. Even with it being shown on 7 of the theaters 10 screens, it still managed to sell out.
One of my favorite parts of the night was watching them load the film into the theaters projectors. I had never been in a projector room before and I thought it would make for a different perspective than just shooting what everybody else was watching. I asked, fully expecting to be told no, but the Manager was kind enough to oblige and gave me the grand tour.
