Ok folks, I trust I'm doing this correctly.

I have only a few days, but I need help with captioning or placing text in a poster or magazine style on this image.

It will go within the "bubble" area on the image. But in the final image, the "Bubble" will not be on the image. It's more there as a guideline.

Anyway, I need something awesome, preferably commercial worthy. But I also want to hear some goofy and silly ones. This image was taken last weekend at a golf tournament I worked for my brother's company. I have only until June 25th to finish this to send off for print.

Thanks in advance everyone!!

I tried that but for some reason it kept coming up as a black box with an X.

Anyway, thank you very much Clarence.

Well I can't recall what happened at that moment. I was the only photog covering the entire tournament so had to scramble all over the course chasing after 13 teams. I just love the expression and body language in it. Just screamed to be made into a sports poster.

Ok, I'll ask it. What the hell is even going on in this photo? Looks like a guy just walking. As Clarence said "Guess you had to be there"
