The Chevron World Challenge 2009 sans Tiger Woods | PGA Golf Tournament

The Chevron World Challenge is a PGA golf event held at the spectacular Sherwood Country Club in Thousand Oaks.  The tournament benefits the Tiger Woods Foundation and was supposed to be hosted by Tiger Woods.  I had this day marked on my calendar to go get some pictures of Tiger.   I'm sure by now  you've all heard the story regarding Tiger.  But I went anyway and tried my hand at some sports photography specifically golf.
