Nationwide Tour Championship in Dallas

The Nationwide Tour Championship was in McKinney, TX just north of Dallas. I had to travel on my birthday, but fortunately got to hook up with my buddy Chris Burks who took me out for an evening of music and fun. We had a nice dinner and went to a club he's played a few times to check out some local cover/tribute bands.
Then the work began. I helped Stan cover the weekend at the course and coordinate the big closing ceremony where the top-25 players receive their PGA TOUR card for 2009.

The 25 TOUR cards wait on the first tee as incentive.

The top-25 finishers pose with their PGA TOUR membership cards.On Saturday the tournament had the local band "Blue Condition" perform on the clubhouse deck. They were really good and the light got really nice toward sunset.
I had some fun with "detail shots".Last light.
