I love watching the golf majors and have been keen to experiment with Stamen’s fantastic Mapstack tool for a while. The pacific time hours provided the perfect opportunity to combine the two, so last night was spent happily map making in front of the golf.

Mapstack, allows easy creation of brilliantly unique map images by layering and colouring different map elements with photoshop style controls. In this case I wanted to keep mine nice and clean to hopefully give some added value as a golf course map.

The seventy minute mid-round weather suspension was enough motivation to start on some simple CSS controls to add some basic interactivity and hopefully make the map a bit more useful.

So if you find yourself watching this over the weekend and wondering who’s where, then hopefully this might help. Unfortunately, the way things are going, I think tracking a few of my favourite players is going to be fairly easy – they’re going watching from the 19th!
