The Solheim Cup is a bi-annual golf tournament between the top professional women golfers from the United States and Europe, with alternating years being played in each locale. The match play and the colorful, noisy crowd make the tournament unique and different from a normal weekend on the tour. The European ladies bested their stateside counterparts all weekend, but the home crowd still seemed to enjoy the event. I woke up early to catch the early rounds of match play, then went on the final afternoon and tried to catch whomever was making the story. Photos Copyright Dustin Bradford/Icon Sports Media.

The Outlaws would seal a first-seed in the playoffs, an undefeated home season, and a record for the best winning percentage in MLL history (regardless of the outcome of the final two games) with this middle-of-the-day 14-12 win. Photos copyright Getty Images 2013.

Prospects and orange shirts. I hadn't heard of half of the players on the Marlins' team (which is odd for me), but I enjoyed shooting the youngsters. The questionable day glow orange jersey's have grown on me since I first saw them, even if they don't last. The Rockies got behind a great start by Jorge De La Rosa and three relievers combined and worked an eighth inning jam with the basis loaded (culminating with a broken bat groundout by Giancarlo Stanton with the bases loaded) to preserve the lead.

Despite a strong first quarter from the Hounds, the Outlaws would continue their undefeated season with a 17-11 win over the visiting Charlotte Hounds. Photos copyright Getty Images 2013.
The Rockies got behind a very solid Jhoulys Chacin start and the game was over in 2 hours, 18 minutes, perfect amount of time since my toddler son and wife and father in law were at the game as spectators. Unfortunately Chacin's bid for a complete game was interrupted in the eighth inning and his frustration was visible on his face. Photos copyright Getty Images 2013.
