Thanks in advance.

never ever take a shot when the player is:

1. addressing the ball
2. on the back swing
3. at the peak of the back swing just before the down stroke

it's at these moments when his/her concentration is most focused. (this also applies for putting.)

use of flash is also a no-no.

try to minimise or avoid movement altogether when the player is making his swing. he may pick up your movement in his peripheral vision and that will affect his concentration.

U will not be allowed near the golfers when they are teeing off or putting. U will need long lenses at least 200mm to get decent close up shots. If u are taking group shots then u will normally do so at the tee box before they tee off so your usual "group shot lens" about 28 to 80mm would be useful. U may wish to use a fill in flash as some golfers wear their caps for group shots and part of their faces will be in the shade.

ha ha... i'd be pretty darn worried if a pro golfer shouted "FORE!" (these guys usually hit what they aim for.) :bsmilie:
