Steve Hyde on Turfgrass Agronomy .::. Finger Lakes Golfer Episode 14

This week we discuss a side to the game that many golfers don’t think about while playing their round… turfgrass agronomy and golf course maintenance. Steve Hyde of Agrium Advanced Technologies is in-studio to pull the curtain back on what goes into maintaining a golf course in the northeast and the single most important element of every golf course in the world… turfgrass! Also, we recap the Tour Championship and Billy Horschel’s Fed Ex Cup title, show you an attractive new putter grip, and give you hole #14 of our Finger Lakes Dream 18.

Golf Course Management with Eric Lorenzetti .::. Finger Lakes Golfer Episode 09

Turning Stone Head PGA Professional Eric Lorenzetti tells you the most common golf course management mistakes by the average amateur golfer. We discuss one of the best Sunday’s at a major championship in recent memory as Rory McIlroy holds off Rickie Fowler, Phil Mickelson and a host of others to capture the PGA Championship at Valhalla. Bobby’s pick of the week is a new grip for his putter and we’ll tell you why you need to fire your caddie in our Zen Tip of the Week segment.

Play The Course As You Find It .::. Finger Lakes Golfer Episode 08

This week we review some common rules of golf that the average player may not be aware of. How many of these rules have you violated in your last round? Also, what a great Sunday at the Bridgestone event in Ohio and Sergio Garcia and Rory McIlroy squared off in the final pairing. Earlier on Sunday, Tiger Woods withdrew citing a bad back. Do you really think he was hurt or did he just quit. Then, Bob’s Pick of the Week focuses on how your eye sight may be fooling you over putts, hole #8 of our Finger Lakes Dream 18, and the Zen Tip of the week asks the question, “who knows what is good and what is bad?”
