I returned to the LPGA to take some photos and see the lady pros. The weather forecast was great all week, but when the day came, it was downright rainy and wet most of the day. I got some neat photos though and managed not to destroy any camera equipment. There were a lot of really good golfers there, and I got to see a lot of the famous names too. Here are some photos, and there are more in my flick gallery.

Mobil 1 Seat Swap
My father and I went to Watkins Glen International Racetrack Tuesday to witness the Mobil 1 Seat Swap. The Seat Swap was an event where Lewis Hamilton, world champion Formula 1 driver, and Tony Stewart, a NASCAR driver each took turns driving each other’s cars around the race track. Tuesday’s forecast was for partly cloudy 65 degree skies with a 30% chance of rain. Instead we got 52 degrees overcast, drizzle, and a stiff breeze. Despite this, between 8,000 and 10,000 people showed up to the event. It was really fun, and fantastic to see a Formula 1 car in person.
Here’s a couple photos from the event. Lewis Hamilton turned some fast laps in the stock car, and even treated the fans to a burnout and a donut on his last lap. That really gave the crowd something to cheer.
There are a few more photos in my flickr gallery.
