Okay, so the shops weren't closing with little signs on the door announcing "Our Bubba is back" and the crowd never grew to 7000. Most of the stores in North Berwick were already closed and yet there was something oddly beautiful as members, children and other interested types walked past our groups of internationally not-renowned writers, then bypassed PGA of America leaders Bishop, Bevacqua and Sprague to go watch the 2012 Masters champion tackle their amazing links.
As the sun set over the North Sea, the wonderful and bizarre little community that is golf shared an unforgettable scene of a champion golfer whapping it around their links on a perfect summer day. Just another reason the Open Championship needs to come to East Lothian more often!
My photo of the scene as Bubba's group came in:
Bubba posing for photos and signing Masters flags that magically just happened to appear!
While we're acknowledging pros playing North Berwick, Johnson Wagner also played Sunday.
