The Crew: Meet David Escobedo...

Peter McCormick


39c46d16a86e2e4240e0c76fcbc39e53-.jpgWhat is your background/current position/organization?  

"I have over 35 years experience working in golf course maintenance. I am currently the head golf course superintendent at a 36-hole facility named Westbrook Village Golf Club in Peoria, Arizona."


Have you had any previous International travel experience?      

"I do not have any international travel experience so this will be a new experience for me. Jon Kiger and I have a few days to explore other parts of Ireland before we report to Portstewart so I am looking forward to that exposure to Irish culture as well."


I do not have any international travel experience so this will be a new experience for me.


What is your previous tournament experience?

"My only previous tournament experience was as a volunteer in the 2001 and 2002 LPGA Standard Register Ping event."


Role in Ireland

"I will be on a crew raking bunkers in the morning and helping with divots in the evening."


What do you hope to experience/bring back

"I am looking forward to learning another side of turfgrass management at a true links course. Growing grass in Ireland will definitely be a different experience than growing grass in Arizona. Another thing that will be exciting for me is learning the culture and meeting new people. I have heard nothing but great things about the Irish folks and Portstewart Golf Club. I am sure Bernard Findlay will have the course in top shape for this tournament and I look forward to helping to keep it that way during the event.


I would like to thank the kind and generous members at Westbrook Village Golf Club that made all of this possible. Without their contributions and allowing me to be away this long, this trip would not happen."
