Here’s a panoramic view of the 18th green on Sunday at the LPGA Volvik Championship. Click to embiggen.
As I shot this photo, the final groups were coming in, and the crowd building. At that moment, Shanshan Feng was heading down the 17th fairway, up by two. Minjee Lee was on eighteen, which she would eventually birdie to get to one back of Feng. The A123 System grandstand is straight ahead, and on the right is the Tito’s Vodka grandstand, where in addition to having a nice view, you could get a nice Tito’s American Mule or lemonade.
The LPG Volvik Championship was a lot of fun for me as a spectator/blogger. There was great golf, and everything about the tournament seemed to be well run. I hope that the the tournament will return to Ann Arbor for many years to come.
I’ll quote a couple of guys I overheard as they were leaving the tournament grounds on Saturday: “I feel like I got my money’s worth here today.”
