The 3 paintings below are what started me on my road to doing Golf Illustrations. In the early 80's I was involved in a Pro Golf store in Ohio when a salesman from Foot Joy and Titleist say my watercolor One Up After Nine and asked if he could show a copy of it to his boss and I was off. It became a print, then they did 6 color lithographs, which was expensive.
If you are interested in how I painted conceptual Illustrations of golf holes under construction, check out my At Work page.

One Up After Nine, 14 x 18 watercolor
Tools at Rest, 16 x 20 watercolor
This was my second print for American Brands

I feel this is one of the prettiest hole on the course and the hole the made me want to paint this course.
Par 5, 555 yds from the back tees
This is primarily no. 10 with the par 3 no.11 in the background.
Hole no 10 , par 4 437 yds
Hole no. 11, par 3, 160 yds
This pretty par 3 is a copy of #12 at Augusta.
Hole no. 11, par 3 160 yds
This beautiful hole is a close replica of #13 from Amen Corner at Augusta
In the spring it is breath taking with all the Magnolias and Crape Myrtles in bloom.
This par 5 is 514 yds from the back tee.
From 1980 to 1999 I painted around 80 different golf holes. The following are some of my favorites for one reason or another. Usually I painted in gouache if it was just a presentation or advertising rendering, but a lot of them required oil paint.
