Fans Hunting For Autographs

When it comes to get close to the pros for golf fans, it is all about location, location, location.
When it comes to get close to the pros for golf fans, it is all about location, location, location.

The hunt is on this week for the one special autograph. Some fans say they have a strategy before they even get to Oak Hill.

"Smile a lot. Put myself out there and say please," Jessica Bradley says of her technique.

"About 15 to 20 feet up is probably your best bet. It's right at the bottom of the stairs. That's where they start," Mark Forbes said.

Pros like Sergio Garcia say they do not mind.

"I usually do (he never signs anything) only to you. On the practice rounds I usually sign. I sign between holes on the golf course and a little bit here and there on the range," he said.

"It's quite flattering really. There's an enjoyment of signing an autograph but look whenever," Brett Rumford said.

It is a signature that means so much to golf fans, especially the kids.

"Jason Day, he's good and Jimmy Walker is good and Harrington, he's pretty good," Noah Thornefortuna said.

That is one of the reasons why the rock stars on the course say they love to do it.

"To make people happy; and they deserve it. Obviously they are here to watch us and we wouldn't be here if it wasn't for them," Garcia said.

"Rickie Fowler. [I] came here just for him. I will wait all day," Bradley said.

Getting autographs might be a little more difficult once the championship begins but if you are in the right place at the right time, you might get lucky.
