Trey Wingo from ESPN Tweeted out a photo of a camera casualty at the British Open on Thursday, and apparently it was not a cheap piece of equipment. Thomas Bjorn was the golfer who had the precarious start at Muirfield when he hit an errant second shot on the first hole that shattered the lens of an ESPN camera. The rough is no joke over in East Lothian.
Wingo said the camera was worth $50,000 but Mike Tiroco quoted the camera at being worth a ridiculous $80,000. That is an expensive second shot. We have video and a pretty great image courtesy of ESPN’s Trey Wingo.
