My guest on this episode is Darren Carroll. If you have seen incredible photographs from USGA events, there is an excellent chance that Darren was behind the camera when the shutter button was pressed. His work has been featured in Sports Illustrated, Golf World, and Golf Digest and he serves as a photography consultant to the PGA of America, and is also part of the photography team for both the U.S. Open Golf and U.S. Open Tennis championships. Great stories from behind the viewfinder by one of the best golf photographers in the world.
