Better believe that we arrived at Bellerive with plenty of copies of our July issue on hand… Carlos Arraya, CGCS, and the 100th PGA Championship were the cover story of the issue. Photo: Golfdom staff

Macro-Sorb’s National Sales Director Eric Greytok thanks the crew for their hard work. As a former superintendent with major championship experience of his own (2000 U.S. Open, Pebble Beach; 2006 U.S. Open, Winged Foot) he knows the work that goes into such an event. Photo: Golfdom staff

Tiger Woods gets dialed in on the driving range. Bellerive’s driving range featured grandstands that allowed golf fans to watch their favorite golfers from 15 feet above the players… the crowd watching Tiger from up high was immense. Photo: Golfdom staff

Adam Scott took time to sign just about every autograph that was asked of him. He also took time to answer all of Golfdom‘s questions. That’s got to be the reason he finished in third, right? Good karma. Photo: Golfdom staff
