Cart Girl

The Secret Life of Cart Girls was published in the April issue of Golf Digest Magazine.  It involves many of my friends including models Tiffany and Dan.  Thankfully, comedians Nick Pupo and Jason Hunter also joined in the fun and provided many laughs throughout the day at Rio Pinar in Orlando.

Photographer Walter Iooss is my photography idol.   His recent Paulina Gretzky golf cover sparked nationwide interest in Golf Digest this week.  And well… I have a sense of humor and called a few friends.

I’d like to thank:

“Big Joe” Ellicott, an Orlando sports radio host and owner of Uncle Joe’s Coin shop in Orlando.  You can listen to Joe every morning on the CBS 810 APP!  Follow him on Twitter!

Casey Bourque, my buddy since the age of 5, when we played hockey together in Biddeford, Maine.  He played in the 2004 US Open at Shinnecock.  Oh, and he won the Maine Amateur in 1995.  Follow him on Twitter and check out his Orlando web design business.

Jesse Dunbar, an Orlando realtor that dropped by before his men’s hockey game. Follow him on Twitter.

Jeff Cyr, my brother.  He’s a flight instructor and will get plucked up by the airlines within the next year… unless they see this.  This is not his flight uniform.  He’s not on Twitter or Facebook.

Federico.   I don’t know him.  He’s a ninja.

Ernie Fairles, originally from Canada, and a golf instructor.  Ernie plays the drums and enjoys showing his fiancé jiu jitsu moves.

Bill Canavan, my neighbor and second father.  He served our country and has installed conveyor systems around the world.

Mike Wieland, who works for a golf company in town.

Then there’s me…  Follow me on Instagram or Twitter or Facebook.  I photograph a lot of golf.   I’d like to work on your next ad campaign!

Hey Paulina, DJ and Mr. Gretzky, need a fourth?  Maybe we can shoot some photos before the round!  :)

And thanks to my sports agency buddy Ryan Totka, for being a website guru!

Annoying Golf Partners!

18 Annoying Partners

I was contacted by Golf Digest staff members in mid 2011 to create humorous photos of annoying golf partners.  I was honored they thought of me.  I guess my narrated video of Golf Digest writer Matt Ginella retrieving golf balls from a water hazard during a PGA tournament finally paid off!  (You’ll have to ask me for that).

The staff and myself came up with 22 photo ideas for the first installment.  We picked them based on the humor, photography options and time restraints for each photo.  Some were pretty easy, like the ball retriever guy and the cigar guy… both of which were portrait by my father, Don Cyr!   Others weren’t so easy, such as the parking lot pro and cheater.  Lighting, luck and expressions paid a large part to the success of the photo.

I wasn’t dealing with real actors.  I was dealing with a bunch of hack golfer friends and family!  Especially funny were the four Orlando comedians that made an appearance.  Special thanks to Jason Hunter, Clay Robertson,Nick Pupo and  Mark “Jiggy“.  Many others helped me including Dennis Card, Rob Overall, Doug and Alex Climo, Casey Bourque, Dan Cook, Evan Hoffman, Octavian Cantilli, Tiffany Crystal, Paris Nichole, Nancy and John Smith,  Craig Kotilinek and especially Nick Dunleavy and Rio Pinar Golf Course in Orlando, Florida.

It’s now in its second year.  We added another 18 annoying golfers to the slideshow in January 2013.  The first slideshow got many millions of hits, so they decided to keep going!

If you’d like to add the photos to your golf or humor blog, please ask me for some photos to share.

18 Annoying Golfers

golf digest_18 annoying golferSometimes you’re a perfect fit for a job. This is one of those assignments. Golf Digest came to me with an idea to showcase the 18 people that annoy you while playing golf. For example, the cell phone guy, ball retriever guy, over celebrator and more.

Rio Pinar, an Orlando golf course, was our gracious host for the day.
