Respect For Golf Course Superintendents

Care and maintenance of a golf course is an easy thing, right? Well, think about your yard and the amount of work (or not) you perform to keep it looking beautiful.

I ask this question for a friend 😉 All joking aside, this is a favourite sport of many armchair athletes because the have a compulsion to be on the winning side. I have never felt that way, but from time to time will adjust the size of my cheerleading circle as I lose interest in the success of a player. I consider it an evolution in my support that happens slowly. How about you?
