Very cool image, Preston! If you could turn the flag logo around you'd have an ad image for the course! Looks like the raptor is thinking, "no way you're gonna make this putt!"

Great shot. Guess he was looking for a "birdie"?

Wonderful find Preston, well done. I was thinking the same thing John (Gamecocks) was when I first saw it.
