The Alfred Dunhill Links Gallery – Week One

In a brilliant new series, acclaimed golf photographers select their favourite pictures from the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship and describe how these classic pictures came about.

First is David Cannon who has chosen this stunning photo which highlights the glorious contrast of colours that make the Old Course at St Andrews such a special place.

David recalls: “The walk up the 18th hole across ‘Grannie Clark’s Wynd’ is memorable enough for the golfers, but for the photographer it is one of my favourite spots on the Old Course as the late evening sunshine accentuates the shadows, humps and hollows and the players.

“I really like sitting up in the grandstand behind the 18th green just trying to make images like this where a combination of the shadows of the natural ground combine with the shadows made by the players.”
