    The PGA Tour is in Dallas, Texas for the Byron Nelson Classic. This statue of Byron is located next to the first tee. It is a lifelike resemblance of the great Lord Byron.

  • 2008 Verizon Heritage - Camilo Villegas

    by Chris Tuten - Dir Player Promotion - Cobra

    Camilo prepares his L4V for takeoff on the par 5, 5th hole. It's a great hole that makes the player hit the ball right to left off the tee and go for a small green that slopes towards the OB that's only 10 yards right of the green. It doesn't get much credit, but to me it's one of the best holes on tour.

  • 2008 Masters - Monday practice round


    Chris Tuten caddies for Geoff Ogilvy during the Monday practice round at the 2008 Masters.

    This Monday I was fortunate enough to caddy for Geoff Ogilvy at The Masters. As you might notice from the pics attached, I had a great time. It was a treat to spend some quality time with my friend as we discussed the course, our families, surfing, and about everything else than The Masters Tournament.Geoff asked me before the WGC event at Doral if I wanted to caddy, my answer was an immediate YES. Geoff told me that during The Masters he tends to be too serious during practice rounds and when the event starts on Thursday, he is emotionally fatigued. Having me out there allowed Geoff to play the course, without thinking of the tournament.

    We just walked, talked and had fun. We initially started as a single, but play became backed up on the 3rd hole and Martin Kaymer, a young German golfer on the rise, joined us. The course was playing very long. Geoff hit many middle to long irons on the day and he hit the ball the best I have seen him hit it in the last year. The highlight was a 235 yard 3 iron off a hanging lie to the 13th green. It was the type of shot a Masters Champion hits. He was hitting his Cobra Speed Pro D very long, with perfect flight. He flights his Pro MB iron with a strong high trajectory and stops long irons quickly. It's a great combination for Augusta National.

    As I watch the television coverage this week, I will think about Monday and the fun we had. The Cobra Team will be well represented with Geoff, Ian, Camilo, and J.B. gunning for the green jacket.
