    More great writing from Dave on a subject a lot of us never knew went on behind that curtain. Most of my cup changing also involved a tractor pulling a trailer carrying a rake, a hose, a Toro walk-mower and a cup cutter as dull as Dick's hatband. Possibly around 18 seconds devoted to the cup. After reading your column, I now understand why I was forcibly retired from cup cutting at age 17 and "promoted" to Night Waterman.

    This is the most blisteringly bizarre humorous video I have seen in a long time. I mean, the look on her face as that hair is coming off? You can't fake true sadistic behavior. Can't. I can't stop laughing....Can't.

    It's interesting that you say that, Jon, because I actually didn't think myself as awesome. Because I saw you and some others who really had game at it. And like anything else, when you don't do it enough, you lose a certain bit of the edge. The other factor for me is that the size of me and my feet, made wet greens a non-starter as I left Sasquatch tracks all over on the wrong days. But I did think of myself as obsessive. It slowed me down, but I didn't miss much. I didn't know that you held that session with everyone. I thought it was just for us remedial learners who needed a tune up. Very cool. Thank you for always adding great content.

    Every Green Has A Sacred Spot

    When I went to PGA Tour Agronomy, I thought I knew how to cut a cup. It did not take long for a group of Champions Tour Rules Officials led by Brian "Bruno" Henning to show me the next level of perfection expected at every one of their competitions. It took awhile before they would trust me with the training session that was held before each and every event. When I earned that badge, I realized that the method that Dave is referring to is literally the ONLY way to insure precision and fairness in the cup placement and replacement process. I still get a chance to pass on that wisdom from time to time, and it never gets old. Well said, Dave, and yes you were very good at it.
