Because it's been far too long since we checked in with the "official blog of GCSAA's Golf Course Management magazine," let's do so now. They decided to follow Fred Klauk, the head superintendent at Sawgrass, around for the day.
And I know what you're thinking. But if you don't hate golf, it's interesting. And since it's the "official blog of GCSAA's Golf Course Management magazine," I'm guessing they don't have interesting things very often. I say we indulge.
They picked up this little tidbit.
Azinger apparently suggested to Abate that several shrubs be removed overnight to create a walkway to the clubhouse that would keep the players away from autograph seekers that line the already established path. Klauk doesn't know what to say. "Can you believe that?" he asks.
I can. When you've got the dynamic sexual appeal of Paul Azinger, you'll do anything for protection from the throngs of people dying to be close to you. When you're tied for 46th after two days, and finishing your round before television coverage stars ... all the ladies want a piece. The man needs some shelter.
