Masterful Golf Photography
Jason Getz '98 (photojournalism) captured the image of a lifetime when he snapped a widely circulated photo of Tiger Woods moments after winning the 2019 Masters.
Getz' golf photography caught one of the iconic moments of the tournament, and the sport's history, as a jubilant Woods celebrated an emotional comeback victory. It was Woods' 15th major win, but first since 2008 and a string of back surgeries. Getz was hired by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution to shoot the Masters, and his tournament-defining image ran in publications across the country, including the Los Angeles Times, Philadelphia Inquirer and The Oregonian.
“To me, photography is all about anticipating something that might happen and trying to be in the best place,” Getz said. “Some might say I had the wrong lens on, but I still captured the moment.”
