  1. In this episode of Rockbottum Radio, presented by DryJect, Randy reveals his proven method for upgrading your BS filter. Then, Fester N. Boyle, the former green chair at Stinkin' Pond CC drops by to offer Momma some suggestions on golf maintenance. Ludell sells golf insurance and extended golf swing warranties before getting in real trouble when he joins Buddy in a special yoga class at the gym, while Randy goes on about how to use Crowd Wisdom to see the future of golf. In Storytime, RW tells about how he and brother Mike became golf course rocket scientists and managed to lower the surrounding property values.
  2. It's more complicated than that, Matt. As the most requested shampoo boy in Esmarelda's Day Spa and Hair Salon, Buddy makes twice what we can pay him as a film star. Also I think she beats him.
  3. In this episode of The Buddy 'n Randy Show, we advise Golf Course Personnel in "How not to get kicked in The Jimmy in 2020". Brought to you by DryJect!
  4. I agree with Dave--except for the Nascar reference--I always look forward to reading your work. Your editor is very good, too, and probably a major part of your success. (I have a similar situation) Keep drivin' Paul and don't take too long of a break. If you stop movin', somebody will always try to pile dirt on you.
  5. In this holiday episode of Rockbottum Radio, among zero-environmental impact mowers and white-lightning eggnog, it's the annual Christmas dinner for the crew and a twisted attempt at caroling ("In the fairway we can build a snowman..."). Aint Feemy runs over a slow-play golfer with her cart for calling her a Boomer. And, for Storytime, RW tells about his most memorable Christmas (1977, after two seasons as an assistant superintendent), when he also discovered Clarence the angel and Mr. Potter. As his gift to all of us, RW suggests that in this time of division, anger and irrational reactions, we should consider the influence we have over friends and family, and how much impact our behavior has on our crew. Ask yourself this: will my effect next year be positive or negative? RW and the Gang also welcome their new sponsor, DryJect.
  6. Steve, we've tried to get her to quit that . . . and the MMA, too, but when you get a good marshal, tolerance is key.
  7. Check out our Top 3 Skeletal Golf Tips of the Year! #1: Dustin Riley of Oconomowoc Golf Club in Wisconsin, is this year’s big winner. Dustin wins the Rockbottum “Iron Skillet”* for his amazing tip on reframing tees to fit your spray rig. (See TurfNet Forum) Instead of just topdressing heavy or capping and leveling a tee designed and built by somebody with no GCS experience, Dustin explains how to reframe the tee to the specs needed to match your spray rig. This is brilliant SGT thinking and saves time, money and product. As many tees as I rebuilt over the years--especially par 3’s and narrow 4’s--I could kick myself for not figuring this one out. Great job, Dustin! *NOTE: The Iron Skillet Trophy will arrive by June and has never been used for cooking. (There might be some residual skull fragments, however.) #2: Are you one of those superintendents who cannot afford to be an Imperial? Does your club have an accountant who waves his line-item veto flag every October? If you are like me and never managed to work for a club willing to pay association dues—local or Imperial—don’t despair . . . SGT has the answer: Just join TurfNet. TurfNet is very affordable, has the top job listing and used equipment sources, as well as the best Forum on the golf planet. (See Dustin’s tip above) TurfNet requires no travel and best of all, if you simply must have letters behind your name, the TurfNet package also includes Mystic Order of Greenkeeper* membership. NOTE: *MOG is a typical secret society, so expect restrictions if your job currently pays for you and your spousal unit to attend The Open. #3: Coming in last is our favorite all time golf course problem solver, "Aint Feemy". Watch this short film and learn how to effectively speed up play. This will lead to fewer disgruntled golfers and possibly explain how to gruntle your golfers.
  8. Thanks, Steve . . . and when I said go for a walk in the woods, I forgot about what lives in the woods down yonder where you operate. Maybe just stay on the sidewalk.
  9. In this short film from our "Boots & Ruck" division, we explain how you can take a mental break by practicing "Forest Bathing". *Note: If you absolutely cannot remain clothed to Forest Bathe, we suggest you at least keep your boots on.
  10. "they are not where I am." Terrific line.
  11. Steve, Buddy says I have more stitches than Frankenstein's boy.
  12. Buddy discovers an actual use for Twitter.
  13. You are correct, KR. It's one of those shockingly beautiful mountain courses, like the kind you ran. Couldn't shoot at the Rock last week because it was hay mowing time.
  14. It's Halloween. Time for another terrifying fairie tale to emerge from the deep, dark hollows of Rockbottum CC. Or is it a fairie tale?
