The first two people we ran into at the Tour Championship: Bill Brown of Aqua-Aid Solutions and Ralph Kepple, CGCS, director of agronomy at East Lake Golf Club. Nice job sticking with the preferred local brand of beverage there, Bill! (Photo: Golfdom Staff)

The crew was all smiles as (left to right) Clayton Craig, Chris “Chuckles” Smith and Jay Dever took time to visit with us on Golfdom TV. We learned from the guys that the crew is like a family at East Lake and that yes, his nickname is Chuckles because he likes to laugh. (Photo: Golfdom Staff)

Out to get a sneak preview of the course, Brown (left) and MacGregor looked like they were ready to join the field of 30 golfers and take a shot at that $15 million dollar purse. (Photo: Golfdom Staff)

Jones was able to cover more ground on his first day at East Lake compared to his colleagues. The benefit a ride makes — given by the gracious Dr. Trey Rogers of Michigan State — is hard to express, but can best be seen in the difference from one day’s Fitbit statistics to the next.

Chris Notestine, Walnut Creek GC (left), and Mike Mosquera, University of Florida GC, were in charge of monitoring greens moisture on greens 1, 3, 7, 10, 13 and 14 during the Tour Championship. No. 3 green was their favorite (“bulletproof” was the language they used), while No. 14 was consistently the driest of their bunch. (Photo: Golfdom Staff)
