I'm going to shoot a pro golf tournament the coming weekend, and I need some advice, since I haven't been shooting golf at this level before.
My plan is to use two of my existing bodies and lenses, the D80 with vertical grip and 80-200 f/2.8 AF-S and the S5 with 300 AF f/4 plus an 1.4x TC if needed. I'll also bring the Tamron 17-50 and the 85mm f/1.8 and/or 50mm f/1.8. A D300s would have been nice, but I don't have one.
Are my lenses long enough? A 200-400 would obviously have been perfect, but I don't have that either. I'm planning on taking a relatively light tripod with ballhead, mostly so I don't have the weight of all my gears on my shoulders all the time. There will be more than enough light (if they can finish on schedule) and baking hot.
I know there are rules about when to shoot and when not to at golf tournaments. Does anybody know the exact regulations?
Any help would be very welcome.
