Tuesday night was the Payne Stewart award ceremony. The ballroom looked great, and they even had "live statues" on display. It was funny to see peoples' reaction when they realized the bronze guys were alive!
Several players took part in a panel discussion on Wednesday before the VIP outing. There was just a bit of ribbing going on.
On Thursday morning Mr. Errie Ball hit the ceremonial tee shot. At 96 years old, he is the only surviving golfer who played in the inaugural Masters Tournament in 1934.
He striped it right down the middle of the fairway!The FedExCup and tournament trophy were displayed on the first tee.
Camilo Villegas obliges me with a great "spiderman pose" with a clean background. It was good karma, he went on to win the tournament.
The club on top of the trophy has never stayed in place. The commissioner tries unsuccessfully to re-install it!
Camilo won the tournament, but Vijay locked up the FedExCup by just showing up and playing all four rounds. If Villegas had not missed the cut at Barclays, he could have been holding both pieces of hardware!
