A friend sent me a link to the Business Mirror’s Golf Section and said I should check it out. I did that, and found a picture of myself above a report about Nutranta’s Best Practices seminar, where I spoke about a continuous improvement system for turfgrass.
Joe Gulotti had me as a guest on his The Talking Greenkeeper show this week.
We talked about elephant footprints, the MLSN soil nutrient guidelines, measuring clipping volume, my book A Short Grammar of Greenkeeping, the temperature-based turfgrass growth potential, this year’s challenging weather, whether one needs to core and topdress putting green turf, where a #TurfFights episode might be staged, and much more.
Last week I had a chance to stay at the Onyria Palmares Beach House Hotel. I don’t often have the chance to stay at such a nice hotel. The views were so good, and as the light changed I often found myself wandering back to the balcony of my room to take another picture.
At the Kuay Tiaw Yai To restaurant on Samui Island, just under the shelf with all the trophies, you’ll find a surprising hat rack, with caps from Bandon Dunes, the Masters Tournament, and the Old Course at St.
For the past month, I’ve been making an intense study of the grasses in a rather narrow latitude, from 44 to 49°N.
There are many grasses at sea level, but I find some really interesting specimens at a higher elevation.
Four days. Two continents. Four birdies. Lots of celebrating.
A trans-Pacific flight.
After that, some popcorn and jet lag.
It’s been mostly work, actually, but I’d be remiss if I didn’t share a few of my accomplishments on the golf course this month.
First, at the challenging chipping course at Laem Chabang International Golf and Country Club.
