composite photoshoot

As some of you may have spotted on my Twitter, Instagram and/or Facebook — in other words, my social media — I spent Saturday shooting the inaugural Wei Under Par holiday guide *and* 2014 look book.

The above composite is just a sampling of the looks, some of which come complete with clubs and other golf-related products.

Many thanks to the talented photographer Mike Altobello (check out his website) and Kelly Quan, who was responsible for the hair and make-up.

Big shout-outs of appreciation to the companies and sponsors involved (in no particular order): adidas Golf, TaylorMade GolfNike GolfCallaway GolfAshworth, Cross, Fairway & Greene, Zero Restriction, Fila GolfSun Mountain, SchriffenScheyden Precision Eyewear, KENTWOOL, Club GloveTin Cup, Maui Jim, G/FORE, Seamus Golf, Jones Golf Bags, CHAMP Spikes and ScoreBand. Also, a special thank you to Buffalo Communications, Jack Studios and Oliver Horovitz (for his caddying skills).

Tiger put on a solid come-from-behind performance, firing an impressive 62 — and just enough to let Rory consider his lead coming down the stretch to secure the win and his ascendance to the world’s No. 1 ranking.
