Yesterday was a very long work day for me in Wisconsin covering the horrible Sikh Temple murders. The assignment was made a lot easier thanks to the kindness of the Sikh community. They all seem very glad were here… which almost never seems to happen in these situations. Covering this assignment has been quite interesting. Last night at a Sikh Temple all of the photographers were having to feel their way, trying not to culturally offend our subjects by making missteps based on our unfamiliarity with the Sikh religion.
South Korea’s Choi Na-yeon survived a tumultuous four-hole stretch after the turn to win her first major title by four shots at the U.S. Women’s Open in Kohler, Wisconsin on Sunday.
South Koreans could not look any more comfortable in this U.S. Women’s Open if it were played in Seoul.
Yesterday was a lot easier to cover than Thursday’s U.S. Women’s open. Suzann Pettersen got out front at -5 in the morning and the afternoon’s golfers didn’t offer up much of a challenge. Every time someone looked like they were going to make a run for the lead, we would run out to shoot a few frames just to have them rack up a bogy.
Yesterday was one of the hottest days on record in Wisconsin and for the third time in my life, I found myself throwing up and about to pass out.
