    Any change in the camera policy? I am going Sunday for the last day of Quals/Practice, and am planning to bring 5DMkIII with my huge Sigma 120-300 on a monopod. Shouldn't have any problems, right?

    (I don't like to bring that set-up on actual tournament days as it can be a distraction to others).

    So all of this is hand-held? Impressive!

    I'll be there Sunday in blue/black/white plaid shorts, white polo, and a Titleist cap. I'll have my MkIII around my neck and my big Sigma. I'll skip the monopod at your recommendation, thanks for the heads up.

    If you see me, come say hi, I'll do the same if I spot you.
