PGA Tour Champions 2016 Pacific Links Bear Mountain Championship
September 22, 2016 - Golf legend Colin Montgomerie enjoys a quiet moment to take in the vista from the top of the 15th tee of the Mountain Course during the Pacific Links Bear Mountain Championship Pro Am on Thursday at Bear Mountain Resort in Victoria, British Columbia.
WHY I CHOSE THIS PHOTO: Shooting the PGA Tour Champions event was a highlight of the year for me and a chance to watch, up close, some golfers that I grew up admiring. I had a chance to follow Montgomerie around for a few holes and when we got to the top of the 15th on the Mountain Course, Montgomerie was quite taken with the expansive view of Victoria and beyond. He took a brief moment to quietly enjoy this view and I snapped this image. I think it is an illustration that good images do not always come directly from the "field of play" or the game action. Often things that happen away from the main action can make compelling and powerful photos and I felt this image illustrated that nicely.
