Photographing the 2014 Ryder Cup at Gleneagles - part 4 of 1 2 3 4

by Ian Cook Published 01/12/2014


arrived on the green and positioned myself to the back right of the green and sat down. Donaldson was just a speck up the fairway. He hit his shot and it landed about three feet from the pin. The place went nuts. I was tracking Donaldson's walk down to the green and hoping to see him finish and putt to win the point but the US player, Bradley conceded and all hell broke loose from a photographer's standpoint -the scrum as we call it. I stay away from them as it's dangerous and I pay for my own kit and don't want it damaged. What I didn't't realise was that McIlroy, Garcia and Stenson were standing beside me. I was caught right in the middle of a mini scrum. So I grabbed the Lumix GH4 which had my widest lens and started shooting. Then it all calmed down because play was still going on in the other matches; Lee Westwood was making his way down the fairway in his game. I managed to get up to Donaldson and I briefly spoke to him, explaining I was the only Welsh photographer there and I asked if he would hold the Welsh flag and which he did.
