Augusta and Glen Echo

Fellas shot lights out the last few days and a wire to wire winner in Jordan Speith. Augusta looked spectacular as usual.

Rarely do I feel that members try to compare what we are doing here at Glen Echo to what is seen on TV during this special week at the Masters or for that matter any tournament course. Others are not so lucky in my profession with what is called the Augusta Syndrome in which members question why we can't do what they do during an event.

The following picture shows a line of fairway mowers at Augusta National. To place things in perspective, there are 14 fairway units/operators trans-versing this beautiful golfing property during tourney week. Including myself, assistant, mechanic and horticulturist, there are 13 of us working the property during what would be called our main season at Glen Echo.
A picture is worth a thousand words.
