Ok tomorrow is the big day. I am heading off to the PGA Championship practice round, and they say its a great day to get autographs. So I need some tips if anyone has every went to one of if anyone has any other things they think I should bring. Below is a list of stuff I am bringing. I am leaving early tomorrow morning I need help ASAP. Thanks TY.

A backpack with this stuff in it
3 sharpies
15 clean golf balls
lots of index cards
sports cards of some of the better players
digital camera
water

Also my dad said he will be 1 of those flags that have 88th PGA Championship written on them, and am only going to get a couple autographs on it. Hopefully Tiger, Phil, Ernie, and Vijay. I'm sure I won't get autographs, but they say most golfers are pretty autograph friendly.

Well thats about it. PLMK ASAP with some hints and tips!!

Hey Steve I am back, and will have a thread up soon with the results, but it was a mess. Not what you pictured. It was just packed. There was prolly 500 people in a little area trying to get him, and he maybe signed 10 at the most (I was not 1 of them). Also they don't even use the club house. The normal club house wasn't even used as The PGA put up probably 10 buildings for the players, and then a bunchy for the people. They also set up a huge pro shop that was about the size of about a half of a Super Wal_Mart. I ended up getting about 30 autos but Els was the only really big name I got. The crowds were just nots around Vijay, Tiger, and Phil. I was lucky with Els. It's not like a regular tournament where its easy to get autographs. The place was just juiced with people!! So sorry i couldn't get you any autos. sad.gif

Yes Ty I knew it would be crazy they always all are.. even the little tourneys..

Im glad you managed to get some for yourself.. that is a lasting memory for ya..

The seniors and ladies tournaments that I have been to setup there little tables as the golfers come off practice or the pro am to set down and sign. People form a line and then they usually sign until the line is gone.

Ya it was a great expierence. It was my first PGA Golf Tournament ever. Always I just found out that players don't sign during the actual tourny so I am glad I went to a practice round. My dad really liked it too so we might try to get tickets for the Senior PGA Championship next year at Whistling Straights which isn't very far from here.
