As a marshal for the upcoming PGA Championship at Whistling Straits, I have had access at times to discounted tee times at the Kohler courses, including the Irish course at Whistling Straits, the Straits (last season), the River course (last season) and the Meadow Valleys course at Blackwolf Run.

Seven friends of mine and I played the Irish course at Whistling Straits yesterday, and seeing as I have already reviewed the course (WiscoGolfAddict review of Whistling Straits, Irish course) I decided to use the round to experiment with new filters and settings on my camera.

The pictures to follow are some of my favorites from yesterday’s round at one of our country’s top 100 golf courses:
