I will be attending the US Open at Pebble Beach in June. I've been to a couple tournaments in the past, but I didn't bring a camera with me (long time ago) and I didn't pay attention to what others used.

What are the general ground rules for spectator camera equipment?

Thanks in advance

Unless your have a cred...you can only take gear in on practice rounds. I was able to take everything in except a mono pod.

You might check their website to see what they allow.

Also keep in mind that it is common practice NOT to shoot until contact is made with the ball.

Thanks Jon.

That royaly sucks, but I'll try and look it up on the website. I was looking forward to shots of Tiger, Phil and Els.

I assume you have tickets for the regular rounds then?

Most places will not even let you take you cell phones in....;)

Those are the shots I want to take! Aaargh.

The US Open website was very clear about no cameras unless during the practice rounds. What a bummer.

I agree somewhat, the Jack one would be in the great room not the tv room :)

PGA's like walking on egg shells with cameras. I got caught up in drama at last weekend's event while taking photos of players at a hole, and one of the wives went out of her way to have me booted. Fortunately everything worked itself out, but I spent the rest of the weekend trying to think of excuses that would justify skipping the following rounds.

It's funny how sports protocol evolved. Utter silence to hit a stationary ball off a tee in golf, but utter chaos and noise while trying to hit a ball curving into you at 90 mph in baseball. Go figure?:D
