The happy cliché “Chamber of Commerce Weather” was uttered by many fans today (5/7/15) at THE PLAYERS Championship in Ponte Vedra Beach.

The “fifth major” golf tournament is always fun, and for First Coast residents, a popular social event that is always enhanced by cool, sunny weather. After two days of practice rounds, today was kickoff day – so it was really nice that totally blue skies, low humidity and light breezes made it a joy to be outdoors. That doesn’t always happen in May, which can get really hot and steamy.

Walking around the course, I was glad to see fans of all ages out in great number. Colorfully dressed. Watching their favorite players. Many strolling briskly between holes; others planted under a tree in a comfortable chair, waiting for players to come to them.

Hope you get out there this year, if you haven’t already. For inspiration, here are some images from around THE PLAYERS Stadium Course at TPC Sawgrass on the first official day of play 2015.
