Shooter's Comments: The best golf photos come from the worst golf shots and to get two sand trap photos on the same hole back-to-back was just lucky.
- Samuel Hoffman, Photojournalist
Editor's Note: There are rules about when you can shoot in golf - and unwritten rules about where you should stand if you don't want to be in danger. Sand traps are great for photographers, but bad for golfers, because they force chip shots. Since the ball is moving more slowly, it's easier for a photographer to get one picture where it's possible to see the golfer's face, ball, and club all in one.
