It wasnt bad, although I have had better years. I went with a bunch of custom cards, but the rain in the morning ruined them quickly, so I opted to buy a flag and get it signed. There were very few golfers out early, and I almost gave up and went home- but I stuck with it until about 1240 when the rain started coming down really heavily.

Failures-
Ian Poulter- didnt sign for anyone (not a big loss really)
Sergio Garcia- signed for about 1/3 the people- I was not in this 1/3
Ernie Els- everyone said he signed, I kept narrowly missing him.
Sean O Hair- blew everyone off, but I didnt really care

Successes-
Got Angel Cabrera on a custom early in the morning, then went to the flag where I got (In alphabetical order)

Jason Bohn (new guy to the tourney, never got him before)
KJ Choi (had to chase him a bit, but got him right before he went to the putting green)
Ben Crane (nice guy, almost no one knew who he was)
Rickie Fowler (stoked about this one, devoted the entire bottom corner of my flag to just him- he was cool, signed for everyone)
Jim Furyk (always a class act)
Soren Hanson
Padraig Harrington (walked right down the line, hardly anyone recognized him- signed for everyone like he always does)
David Horsey (another "no-name" got him with no one else around)
Miguel Angel Jiminez (usually kind of gruff, was very pleasant this year)
Michael Jonzon (see comments by David Horsey)
James Kingston (pleasant guy, no one knows who he is, I asked him by name to come over and he smiled and did so)
Troy Matteson (signed for everyone)
Eduardo Molinari (same as Horsey and Jonzon)
Francesco Molinari (ditto)
Alex Noren (no name, but really nice guy)
Louis Oosthuizen (signed for EVERYONE- very humble, nice guy- lets hope winning doesnt go to his head like it did to Anthony Kim)
Ryan Palmer
Alvaro Quiroz (first guy I got on the flag)
Justin Rose (signed for everyone, as usual)
Henrik Stenson (possibly the best signer on tour)
Steve Stricker (someone called him Lucas Glover, and that ticked him off- but he was real nice to everyone who knew his actual name)
Bo Van Pelt (nice guy)
Mike Weir (Ive never gotten him in 7 years, he usually only signs for kids, or doesnt sign at all. This year, he signed for everyone)
Lee Westwood (class act)
YE Yang (yet another Major winner- no one knew who he was either)

all in all, a pretty good day. Im just gonna give in and send Els a TTM request
