Marathon Classic Photo Gallery

Just returned from The Marathon Classic in Sylvania, Ohio. As has been the case in just about every tournament this year, it went down to the very last shot. Beatriz Recari sank her four foot par putt on the 72nd hole to come out victorious by one shot over Paula Creamer. I followed the final group, which also includied Lexi Thompson, and was treated to some of the finest golf you will see on any tour. All three players played 18 holes without a single blemish on their scorecard. In fact Lexi won a car when she aced the 14th hole!

Here are some pictures and videos from this very exciting event.
