Wells Fargo Pro-Am
Charlotte, NC
May 4, 2011

   Arnie and I go way back. I was born and raised in Denver, Colorado and can remember when he first hit the big time winning the U.S. Open at Cherry Hills Country Club on the other side of the tracks. I was caddying for my father and the parish priest, so had a bit of interest in the sport. I was 13 years old and can still remember watching the tournament on a black&white TV.
   The first time I marched in Arnie's Army was in the early 70's when I moved to Charlotte. Arnie owned a home on the 15th fairway at Quail Hollow and had a Cadillac dealership in town, so he played the Kemper Open every year. I preferred the relaxed atmosphere of the Pro-Am and can't count the times I followed him around that course.
    In 2001 I marched with Arnie at the Home Depot tournament on the Senior's Tour at Piper Glen in Charlotte. That turned out to be his last public golf tournament.
    When it was announced that he was going to play in the WellsFargo Pro-Am, I immediately bought tickets and started setting up my camera. He had already played a Pro-Am at Bay Hill which he owns in Florida. The WellsFargo was his only other tournament. I knew this was most likely my final march with the man.
    At 82, Arnie was allowed to ride in a golf cart and I knew I wouldn't be able to keep up with him, so chose my holes that I would shoot and arrived in time to pick my spot before the rest of the Army showed up.
     My main goal was to get a great 8x10 for my office. So I didn't spend a lot of time shooting other golfers, but here are some shots of Arnie, Rory McIlroy, Robert Allenby, Sam Saunders, Davis Love III, Phil Mickelson, and Rory Sabattini. Also there are shots of celebrities Jimmie Johnson, Dan Marino, John Elway and former Charlotte mayor Pat McCrory.
