  1. Best one yet. Was this inspired by the Bob Lazar documentary on Netflix?
  2. That was an educational vacation. You also learned not to pick a fight with the little guy in the flannel shirt that takes the last steak at Sizzler buffet.
  3. I do so enjoy your writing and your ability to spin a yarn. I envy your talent, sir!
  4. Golf Pro wouldn't be named Hollis P. Wood would he?
  5. Hey what was that guy doing in the beginning rolling a ball off a stick?
  6. That was a great blog. The original Evolution post has had me thinking about the industry, myself and the future a lot lately. Would make for a great forum post probably.
  7. I reckon y'awl don't have the CBD oil down yonder yet for that gray mold. Sposin' purple reefer squeezins would work too.
  8. I think its a larger societal problem that I could really hijack Dave's post on. I caddied a bit as a 12 year old. I got a job at 15 or 16 washing dishes in a bakery. Then my brother got me entangled in this superintendent life madness at 16. I made money after high school, bought a car and learned the value of work and the pain of paying taxes ( I still remember that first income tax and the madness of writing Uncle Sam a check at 16). Those were formative years. And I spent the majority of them on a golf course. I doubt if anyone under 18 can even get a job anymore? I'm sure they're out there, but not like they were back then. Lawyers, lawsuits, finger pointing, blah blah...yeechh.
  9. I felt the same way until I got robotic mowers and saw the power they leverage to increase efficiency and get a more limited crew size to details that were once always pushed aside to maintain bunkers. Now bunkers get raked while robot mows. Everyone keeps their job and things get done that there was never ample labor to do before. These robots are powerful tools at mid level and public courses where the labor crunch is at its worst.
  10. Dave, The USGA recently put out a video examining the increasing size of urban areas and how people have to travel farther to golf. It explores how this is impacting golf on a more global scale. You might find it interesting and slightly pertinent to you talk. https://www.facebook.com/USGA/videos/607379729736829/?__tn__=kC-R&eid=ARDiH6AXrVo-dtkN83RlzdBQq8rBpijdW7qoCWlZ6kJ5l28pEs0C1AiazJwcuesqLaQOWyema1TZDGUn&hc_ref=ARQA0BFJDP_xepeyCScGMMo37DjsTtAp5RGBcuhrYvCZzUMIJZwFG5MgRDEJ5VObXAM&fref=nf&__xts__[0]=68.ARCKGgLdfyKf1x3iREPit6Wo0wpWfDG2azDaCB7hNKkhcsg2vDohGpfLwb-tbnL2JCfxMpM6tnVL8dwuhPv5nKLdiZ-iIBcJHWxl57iklAXYj9zArdpGMdY73V3qretQj8LREAMQaY-cl3zJLE7jI87BUT-bS_t7PDsLaGASlzQiNyClYRZv_v8rZQ4uYyd3VQsPkcl97HKf2JnZSda2K-NGymTPOBRMA_PLJaEg4YpSCrhU7DHZrLbzKW7-DvF_lEs2ydHeuhs1i6SfjHbchYi3KCcggEQnYLEwn8LeJ5sOjbvn9NKF-PFqba1g6uA3xnbPtUGWMIFaspKaou2v-KuD
  11. Nice job Dave. You made your points well without lecturing. Certainly gave food for the proverbial thoughts. You have a nice on camera presence and are obviously at ease on the front end of a camera. Similarly, I was going to work on a similar video piece, but I couldn't figure out where to put the car chase, the shootout and the gratuitous lovemaking scenes...
  12. I can think of at least two foursomes where I need to walk to through the pro shop, big ol' Stihl 36 incher in hand, and mutter "red rum, red rum". Thanks to Hector and Ydnar!
