Tiger Woods is the most recognisable name in golf today.

Everyone knows Woods; partly because of his scandal, partly because he’s one of the best golfers to ever take the course, and mostly because his presence cannot be ignored.

Photographers at golf tournaments can’t seem to ignore him either. They find ways to photograph Woods that are beautiful and artistic, and end up not just being about golf.

The PGA Championship kicked off Thursday and Tiger finished his round 1-over, hopefully he kicks it into high gear for the weekend.
