Back in early April, Rob and I made our annual trek to the Heritage Golf Tournament at Harbour Town Golf Links in Sea Pines Plantation on Hilton Head Island, SC. This year we celebrate new tournament sponsors.... Royal Bank of Canada and Boeing. A lot of work was done to secure RBC and Boeing and in turn, it keeps The Heritage alive and well. Thank you to all who made this possible!
It's so relaxing to putter with paint in my journal while sitting outside enjoying beautiful weather. Getting autographs during the Pro Am is always a treat. The players, for the most part, are very giving. We chose our favorite area of the golf course to park ourselves... the intersection of holes two, three, six and seven. I collected signatures at the third tee box. There were a couple of sets of grandparents with their granddaughters there. After the pros hit their balls, two of the sweetest little girls would step right up with their hats in hand to be autographed. Now who can refuse a little girl??? I stood just after them and had good success with the players I wanted to adorn my journal page :)
One last signature to go and I had to wait a bit for it. This page is entitled 'Waiting for Paddy' - Padraig Harrington didn't pass our way until 4 pm. Well worth the wait.... he such a leprechaun :)
This is the view of the number two green and looking back up the fairway from our seat at the 3rd tee box.
Three more day's sketches to come....
