They are very strict about Cameras. Don't know why. I'm a golfer and have never understood the big deal of tiny noises in the back swing. They don't bug me one bit. But the pros are very sensative about it. I don't really think it bugs them I think they just use it as an excuse if they hit it bad. You never hear tiger complain to a guy who made noise after a good shot. Only a bad one.
You are going to have to be pretty slick to get it in. That is why I never go to these events. I feel I should be able to take pictures and they don't.

well, if you have a high quality digital camera, it doesn't make any noise when you take a picture.
So unless you are using the flash shouldn't be a problem.
You could think of government workers like teenagers. You pay them an allowance, but do you get any work out them? They eat the food, put their feet on the furniture and complain loudly whenever they are unhappy.
You guys were right about them being strict. I had my camera all hidden...but they had metal detectors. I ended up going back to my car and leaving it. They allow cameras for the practice rounds (M-W), so that's what I'm doing next year.
Awesome time, awesome course. I gotta play that someday. I felt bad for Cejka. He shot 79. He started the day at -11, 5 shots ahead of 6 people at -6. He ended up 8 strokes off the lead...a 13 stroke difference! Stenson started at -6 and shot -6 (66) for the day. I followed Tiger & Cejka for the 1st 11 holes. Tiger just couldn't put it in the fairway today. He was scrambling the entire day. After 11 it was obvious that those 2 weren't really in it so I went over to where you can watch the 16th green (par 5) & the famous island par 3 17th. The atmosphere there was like no other I've experienced at a golf tourney. It was a lot of fun. I'll post pics next year.
