Pittsburgh '04 - Terry Easton's Photos

Terry Easton took some digital photos at the event. Here they are:

The gang on the first tee at Butlers' Saturday morning. Left to right: Dave Tutelman, Gary Hayenga, Terry Easton, Dave "Thor" Collard, John "Mr.JFB" Balogh, and Fred Stluka. In case you're wondering how Terry got into the picture, the starter at Butler's was very cooperative. He also remembered us from past years; he's the same guy who was there back in 1997 at the first RSG-Pittsburgh.

The gang on the first tee at Cedarbrook Sunday morning. Slightly different cast of characters, but Cedarbrook's starter is also cooperative. Ken Learman (third from left) joined us for the day.

Our final threesome finishes the last hole of the weekend. Ken, DaveT, and Mr.JFB shake hands while Thor replaces the flagstick.

You can get a slight idea from this picture of just how steep uphill the 18th hole at Cedarbrook is. You are looking straight down the fairway. Since the eye does not do justice to the steepness in a 2-dimensional picture, here are a few things to note:
  • You see the upper half of two golfers in the background. They are waiting in the fairway to hit their approach shots. This picture was taken from a pretty high hill above the green, and the golfers are still half-hidden by  the dropoff.
  •  Note the angle you are viewing Interstate 70 in the background, as it enters its bridge across the Youghiogheny River.
