The Turfgrass Zealot Project Ep. 30 with Guest Justin Woodland

Posted in The Turfgrass Zealot Project, Podcast 29 June 2017 · 955 views

You don't know Justin Woodland. Ok, maybe you do. But you probably don't. And guess what? You need to know him. Here is your chance.

 

Justin is one of those people that I think should be required meeting if you are going to understand the reality of the business of golf and of Greenkeeping itself. He's got the "It" factor that I look for and yet, will probably never see what so many think is "the spotlight". Justin is doing it his way. And he's now got a fire to help others learn. A grass roots mentality. Please pardon the pun.

 

I've been saving this interview for just the right time. This is it.

 

The Turfgrass Zealot Project is only on TurfNet Radio.

Innovation. It's one of the great and wonderful words in our business. I get to chat with Kevin Hicks, superintendent at Coeur d'Alene Golf Club about thinking ahead.

 

How's your strategy for looking at new ways to do the same old, same old? Or does it get old at all?

A great interview with one of the most forward thinking supers in our business. And we get to talk about all kinds of everything that always leads back to talking grass.

Join me as I interview Kevin Ross, CGCS, about the state of the "superintendent job" and his upcoming retirement from the golf course.

 

We talk about everything. Especially his upcoming job change. And his time at The Ryder Cup. And much much more.

 

I love Kevin. He's one of my favorite people and favorite Turfheads. Anywhere.

 

So I am humbled and honored to have him join us!

 

 



The Turfgrass Zealot Project, Ep. #26 with Guest Ike Stephens, YouTube Trucker

Posted in The Turfgrass Zealot Project, Podcast, Friends 08 September 2016 · 2,233 views

Ike Stephens is a legend. His YouTube videos about trucking and the trucking lifestyle are known as some of the most unique on the internet.

 

Join me as I get to know Ike. You may not think of Ike as a "turfhead", but the more he speaks, the more you realize that trucking and turfgrass management have a lot in common. And in a day and age where long hours and hard work aren't always understood, both trucking and turfgrass management share a certain knowledge. And that knowledge is about getting the job done and having fun doing it.

 

Ike shares his creative side in making videos, loving music and getting truckers together for social events.

 

Don't miss one of the more unique guests we have ever had on the TZP. You may never know, Ike could be one of the next reality TV stars!

The Turfgrass Zealot Project, Ep. #25 with guest Hector Velazquez.

Join Hector Velazquez and myself as we go deep into the world of Hector and Hector's Shop!

 

Do you know Hector? You should. He's breaking ground in an often forgotten, overlooked and misunderstood world. The world of the golf course equipment fleet is not only huge, it is a place where a ton of money gets spent. And wasted.

 

Hector and I talk about what's what in his world. From his background to his travels as a teacher, his life as an educator and of course his job as a father and husband.

 

I had such a great time with Hector. He's a brother. And a Turfhead. And an important figure in our business. Thanks for listening!
