2016 Masters Tournament

April 20th, 2016  |  Published in Front Page, Golf, Noteworthy



Images from the 2016 Masters Tournament at Augusta National for Sports Illustrated. The idea behind this year’s assignment was to spend a day on one whole–the first on Thursday, the 13th on Friday, the 16th on Saturday, and the 18th on Sunday. Hopefully, the thinking was, this would afford me the opportunity to break away from traditional action coverage and worry more about just making some different pictures. I’ll let you be the judge, but I wasn’t disappointed with the results.
