Myrtle Beach Classic 2008

February 12, 2008
Myrtle Beach Classic Participants

Every year I play in a golf tournament organized by my father in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. This year there were 16 participants staying in 4 condos playing golf in a 3-day tournament. I played excellent golf and ended up tied with the leader after all 54 holes, but I lost in a scorecard playoff. I took tons of photos with my new camera. They are all available in this Flickr set (slideshow), but I will post a few of my favorites here.
